The roller coaster year of ASU’s basketball teams have had their shares of up and down over the 2012-2013 season.
For the men, this carnival will end next week against University of the Incarnate Word because their 6-19 record will not be enough to give them a slot at the Lone Star Conference tournament this year.
The Rams are 10th in conference standings with a 3-14 conference record, and only the top eight are featured in the conference tournament.
The Rams have won five of their seven home games, so they will be playing for pride and a home win to finish off the season on a high note.
The ‘Belles, however, have a 13-12 overall record and a 10-9 conference record, which is good enough to qualify for the tournament.
In a season that celebrated Sally Brooks’ 400th career win as D-II college coach, the ‘Belles have had almost a 50-50 season up to this point.
The ‘Belles will be the sixth seed in the Lone Star Conference Tournament regardless of what happens next week due to the fact that no team is within a game of surpassing or falling below ASU in the standings.
The Lone Star Conference Tournament will be held in Allen, Texas, from Mar. 6-9, and the winner will go on to the NCAA D-II Regionals Tournament.
This will be the last home game for seniors Antonio Dye and Morgan Youngblood, who will be remembered for their contributions to the team during halftime.
The last time ASU faced Incarnate Word was in San Antonio on Jan. 19, and ASU lost both games.
The ‘Belles lost 52-60, and the Rams lost 83-100 respectively in those games.
The University of the Incarnate Word is currently seeded fourth in both women’s and men’s basketball.
The regular season finale for ASU is on Saturday, Mar. 2, at 5:30 p.m. for the ‘Belles and 7:30 p.m. for the Rams.
