The Bulldogs appear in their last conference match-up this Friday against Southwestern University. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. in SU's Corbin J. Robertson Center.
TLU (8-16, 4-9 SCAC) is currently in seventh place in the conference standings, a half-game back of sixth-place Schreiner (4-8), and a full game back of the team’s tied for fourth, Centenary and Colorado College, both of whom are 5-8 in the SCAC and split their head-to-head meetings with the Bulldogs. Schreiner concludes its season with two games against second-place Trinity (11-1 SCAC) this weekend, so it’s mathematically possible for TLU to lose to Southwestern and still finish tied with the Mountaineers for sixth place.
