The ACU Wildcats are in the final week of the season, and two wins this week guarantee the second seed in the Southland Conference tournament.
The 23-win season was disrupted by the suspension of two starters a nine days ago, but they’ve handled the adversity really well.
Since the suspensions, ACU is 2-1 and has clinched a place in the tournament.
Head Coach Joe Golding said, “Every season you deal with adversity in different ways. I don’t know if I’ve ever had a team here since I’ve been a coach that’s dealt with the adversity maybe as well as this group has. I’ve just really appreciated their courage, their fight. I think when that went down, a lot of people thought it was over. You can talk about adversity and all that stuff, this group has handled it.”
ACU plays their final home game Tuesday night at 7 against Stephen F. Austin.
