NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - The high of winning the Southland Conference for the Ladyjacks is now in the past, as they now look into the future of the SLC Tournament.
"We're excited after coming off a big finish on the season, but we know the competition of the tournament is a new season," said junior forward Daylyn Harris. "Everybody plays their best basketball in March so we just have to be prepared, focused, and mentally ready."
"The tournament is going to be more intense," said junior center Porsha Roberts. "It's going to be the little details that count the most."
When you enter a new season where every game counts, that can come with a lot of pressure. Although, it's not pressure the Ladyjacks haven't faced before.
"We did fight back from 4th place to winning conference and I feel like we got a pretty tough team. We can go out there, win two games, and go to the NCAA," said Roberts
The Ladyjacks have all the momentum behind them right now as they are currently on the 6-game winning streak that made them champions.
The plan is simple in entering the tournament to continue their success.
"The worse thing you can do is over prepare," said head coach Brandon Schneider. "I think it's really important to focus on the things that your team has been doing really well and just go out, do what you do."
"This year we're really focused and we want to win," said Harris. "We have all the confidence in the world right now. We just need to go out and play our game, and know we can come out on top."
The SFA women will start their conference tournament run Saturday in the semifinal.
That game will start at 2:30 p.m. in Katy.
They will play the winner of the Central Arkansas and McNeese game which will be played tomorrow.
