KATY, Texas — “Christian was inserted into the game in Kevi’s place and hit some huge shots down the stretch,” said Cussen when asked about a postgame star. “If I had a game ball, I’d give it to our defense as a whole, but after that I’d give it to Christian.”
The conference tournament victory is the first for the Golden Eagles since a 108-79 win over Western Illinois in the quarterfinals of the 2011 Summit League Tournament.
Saturday’s Championship Game will tip off at 1 pm CT, with the winner earning the Southland’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Live video coverage of the game is available on ESPN3.
