The Demons will be carrying the banner for Louisiana. That's right, NSU is the only hope for the state to have a team playing in March Madness.
And to do that, NSU must defeat Texas-Arlington today in the Southland Conference Tournament championship.
Even with a win, the road figures to be tough for NSU. You've got to figure that with a sub-.500 record, NSU would be in the play-in game. And even with a win in that game, the Demons' reward would be going up against a No. 1.
But that worry can wait. For now, NSU is Louisiana's hope.
