I pretty much have no time today and a too crazy weekend for me to do a real preview, but the skinny is that Southern is another O-fer in the win column SWAC team that the Jays should pretty much handle. They are currently the worst rated team in all of Division-I. There really isn’t too much to preview here other than a beat down.
Maybe their band will show up. Isn’t that what the SWAC is known for?
Hopefully the shooting won’t be as cold as it is outside.
Prediction: Jays 90, Southern 55
