Southern gets no. 16 seed, to face Holy Cross in first round

Fresh off their impressive SWAC Tournament run, Southern now knows where it will land in the NCAA Tournament. Southern (22-12) was awarded the no. 16 seed in the West Regional and will take on Holy Cross in the First round. The winner will play no. 1 seed Oregon in Spokane, Washington.

// Cross finished 14-19, winning the Patriot League conference tournament to punch its ticket.
Southern last appeared in the NCAA Tournament in 2013 when they nearly knocked off top-seeded Gonzaga, ultimately falling short. They did, however, complete the famed upset against Georgia Tech in 1993.
