Feb. 14, 2012
Stephen F. Austin vs UT Arlington
GAME TIME: The ‘Jacks have won four of their last five games and now stand all alone in third place in the Southland Conference, just three games back of first place and have a chance to make some serious noise in the SLC on Wednesday when it hosts league-leading UT Arlington.
THE MAVERICKS: The Mavericks are the lone team remaining in the Southland Conference without a loss, having won each of their first 11 games in league play. Additionally, they are one of the hottest teams in the country with a 15-game win streak, the second-longest current win streak in the country behind only Kentucky’s 17-game ride. Most recently UTA took Texas State to the woodshed, blowing past the Bobcats 73-53 on Saturday at the College Park Center.
SUB-SEVENTY: SFA has held each of its first 24 opponents under 70 points this season, setting a new school record for the longest streak of sub-70 defensive performances to open up a season. In fact, SFA is the only team remaining in the country to have not allowed 70 points in a game to a single opponent.
