Another year, another regular season title for Texas Southern. TxSo clinched its third SWAC regular season hoops crown in four years with its impressive 96-86 win over Alabama A&M behind a stellar performance by Chris Thomas.
Thomas scored 20 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and handed out 10 assists for the Tigers. Freshman Derrick Griffin also stepped up big time with 23 points and 11 rebounds.
“This is a big win for our program,” said TSU head coach Mike Davis. “When I took the job here our AD said that there would be two goals for us to accomplish each year. First, graduate our student-athletes and second compete for championships. We’re really excited about the direction this program is headed and this title is a collective effort of all the hard work our team has put in all season.”
