Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks

The best team in the Southland Conference recently has been Stephen F. Austin. They were so good last season that they finished with a perfect 18-0 record in the conference and they won the conference tournament and made the NCAA Tournament. They didn’t stop there as they upset West Virginia and nearly beat Notre Dame to make the Sweet Sixteen.

The Lumberjacks will have a different look going forward as gone is head coach Brad Underwood and in is Kyle Keller who was an assistant at Texas A&M. It will be a tough job for Keller who inherits a team that loses three starters and the top player off the bench. Replacing Thomas Walkup will not be easy as he averaged 18.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.1 steals last season. The team will also miss Demetrious Floyd and Trey Pinkey.

The Lumberjacks brought in some junior college transfers led by Ivan Canete who is a shooting guard. He is joined by Isaiah Traylor who will probably come off the bench. The team also has Leon Gilmore who will be a big body upfront. The Lumberjacks also added Samuli Nieminen from Finland and Kevon Harris and Aaron Augustin.

The good news for Stephen F. Austin is that they do have Ty Charles, TJ Holyfield and Dallas Cameron returning.

Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks Picks

The Lumberjacks are not a lock to win the conference this season as they have a new coach and a lot of new players but they have enough talent to definitely be a contender. This will not be an unbeaten season for the Lumberjacks in the conference but they have the talent to come together and make a run in the conference tourney.
