Sam Walker, executive director of Alumni Engagement at Texas A&M-Commerce and former Lions head men's basketball coach, says he thinks the men's team has a bid to the NCAA Division 2 tournament locked up going into the Lone Star Conference basketball tournament in Frisco Thursday-Sunday (March 7-10), but he thinks Lion women probably need to win at least one game in the conference tournament to qualify. The Lion men play UT-Permian Basin at 2:30 Thursday (March 7) in the first round, and the Lion women play Eastern New Mexico at 8:30 Friday (March 8).  The tournament championship games are Sunday at 1 and 3.  Sam says Alumni Engagement will host Lion fans at the Rover Grill and Sports Bar at 8250 Gaylord Parkway in Frisco during the tournament.
