In what will be a reminiscent of last year’s men’s and women’s South Western Athletic Conference 2014 basketball championship games, Prairie View A&M and Texas Southern will face off in a double header on Saturday.
Going back to last season, including the championship game, the two teams are evened out at two games apiece.
Texas Southern women’s team (11-9, 8-1) comes into the game in first place in the conference after six straight victories. Prairie View (9-12, 6-3) was riding a six game winning streak when Alabama State stopped them in their tracks, winning 73-65.
From the men’s perspective both the men’s Texas Southern and the Prairie View basketball team come in with a history of tough games, with the margin of victory being too close for comfort in four of the last five game match ups.
Texas Southern (11-11, 8-1) is having a decent season and as of late the Tigers are catching fire at the right time, coming off of 3 consecutive victories with just one loss in the New Year.
PVAMU comes into the game trying to right the ship after starting off with a mere 6-16 record and going 4-5 in conference play. After 4 wins in their last six games the Panthers will look to avenge their earlier loss against Texas Southern when they met in a closely contested game last month.
