League Notes:

The top seed:  #2 LSU Shreveport
NAIA Locks:  LSU Shreveport
NAIA Bubble Teams:   Texas A&M Texarkana, LSU Alexandria
Best chances to win this tournament: LSU Shreveport, Texas A&M Texarkana, LSU Alexandria

KEY PLAYERS:

Kadavion Evans – Shreveport : 20.5ppg, 6.7rpg 4.7arpg

One of the most electric guars in the country. The RRAC Player of the Year is special. He battled sickness for a few weeks that slowed him down a bit, but still finished Top 6 in the RRAC in PPG, RPG and APG this season.

Kobe Powell – Texarkana: 15.2ppg, 5.3rpg,3.8apg, 2.3spg

The little guard is tough and quick. He leads his team in rebounding at 5’9! He is a 1st team All-RRAC selection this year and has take over a game type of talent.

 

Rodney Munson – Alexandria: 15.9ppg, 3.4pg, 4.8apg

The Freshman really stepped up big for Alexandria once Jordan Adebutu left the team. He was thrown to the fire and responded well. Munson is fearless and hits big shot after big shot. Larry Cordero found himself a couple nice young pieces to continue to build around. 

 

KEY TEAMS:

#1 LSU-Shreveport – When they are at full strength they are the best team in the league. They have the top two scorers in the league in Evans and Washington. Coach Blankenship was named Coach of the Year and will have his guys ready to go.

#2 Texas A&M Texarkana – They lost to Shreveport in the RRAC Title game last year. After going to Alexandria and walking out with a win, they have cemented themselves as the 2nd best team in the Red River.

Semifinal Game Notes:


#1 LSU Shreveport vs #4 Jarvis Christian 7:30pm CT
Shreveport 2-0
Shreveport won the game at home by 45 points. While the game at Jarvis was close, if Shreveport is at full strength, it would take a huge upset for Jarvis to win this game. They do have the Defensive POY in Semaj Matthews and it is tournament time, so we will see!

 

#2 Texarkana vs #3 LSU-Alexandria 5:30pm CT

Texarkana 1-0

Texarkana did go to The Fort and knocked off Alexandria. That is a very hard thing to do. This isn’t the same Alexandria team in years past though and they have had quite the year in scheduling with Covid. They have remained ranked and got a huge win over a depleted Shreveport team earlier. This game today will go a lot further in knowing exactly how good Alexandria is and if they are truly a Top 25 team or not.  Texarkana lost in the RRAC Title game last year to Shreveport, they have good pieces and Head Coach Ryan Wall has had good success in the RRAC Tournament.

OTHER NOTES:

RRAC Tournament Page

– Only four teams finished the season in the Red River Athletic Conference

– 3 remained ranked inside the Top 25, with Jarvis Christian being the only team that is not.

Best Semifinal Game: #2 Texarkana vs #3 Alexandria.

Our Pick To Win It:  LSU Shreveport – They are the best team in the league and have the most talent. Evans and Washington are two of the most explosive guards in the country, but they also have  Boyd and
