This year could be a very good year for Louisiana teams participation in the NCAA Tournament. Check out how these teams are doing in their respective conferences. Centenary (14-9, 8-4) is one game behind league leading Valparaiso in the Mid-Continent Conference. Four games left, two at home, two on the road, all against teams still alive for the title. It could fall right for the Gents. SLU (16-6, 8-3) has a half-game lead on Stephen F. Austin, UT-San Antonio, Texas State, and Northwestern St. (10-11, 7-3) in the Southland Conference. The Lions and Demons meet Wed. night in a critical conference game. Winner will likely get sole possession of first place, while the loser is pretty much out of the conference race. Might be a very good game to watch, if you can't make it to LSU/Auburn. UL-Lafayette (14-6, 9-2) lost to New Orleans (13-11, 7-4) today, but is still two games ahead of the Privateers in the Sun Belt Conference's Western Division. The Ragin' Cajuns have four conference games left, all against teams with .500 or better records, plus a "Bracket Buster" game with Rice. It also looks like they will win the overall league title if they go .500 or better the rest of the way. All four schools in competition for the NCAA Tourney pretty much have to win their conference tournaments to go dancing (UL-Lafayette has an outside shot at an at-large bid, but they have to run the table in regular season and win at least two SBC Tourney games, and even then, it's a long shot) But it's exciting that as many as four Louisiana teams could end up in the NCAA Tournament.
