IT WAS TOUGH FOR THE SHSU BEARKATS LAST NIGHT, AS THEY LOST FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER TO THE CENTRAL ARKANSAS BEARS 80-71. THE LOSS PLACES THE KATS AT 19-AND-8 OVERALL AND 11-AND-4 IN THE SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE, TIED FOR SECOND BEHIND TEXAS A&M CORPUS CHRISTI. THE KATS REMAIN ON THE ROAD WITH THE NEXT GAME SATURDAY NIGHT IN TULSA AGAINST ORAL ROBERTS. TIP-OFF SLATED FOR 7:30PM.

FOR THE SAM WOMEN, IT WASN’T MUCH BETTER THURSDAY, AS THEY LOST TO CENTRAL ARKANSAS 54-49. FOR THE BEARKAT WOMEN, THEY FALL TO 11-AND-15 OVERALL AND 6-AND-9 IN THE SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE. NEXT UP FOR THE LADY KATS IS A MATCH-UP AGAINST ORAL ROBERTS IN TULSA ON SATURDAY, WITH TIP-OFF AT 1PM.

THE SAME HOUSTON STATE WOMEN GOT THEIR FIRST SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE TITLE SINCE 2008 IN TRACK AND FIELD ON THURSDAY AS THEY BEAT OUT RIVAL STEPHEN F. AUSTIN AT THE SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS IN BIRMINGHAM, ALABANA. THE LADY KATS HAD A BIG SECOND DAY TO ULTIMATELY GET THE WIN 132-124. FOR THE SHSU MENS TRACK AND FIELD SQUAD, THEY CAME IN SECOND THURSDAY AT THE SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS IN BIRMINGHAM TOTALING 106.5 POINTS.

LOOKING AT BASEBALL, THE SHSU BEARKATS ARE HEADED TO MINUTE MAID PARK TODAY FOR THE HOUSTON COLLEGE CLASSIC, AND THEY’LL BE FACING THREE NATIONALLY RANKED TEAMS THIS WEEKEND.
