HUNTSVILLE, Texas — Within four points of 2018-19 Southland Conference regular season champions Sam Houston State at the half, the SFA men's basketball team was drilled with a 16-3 run by the Bearkats to start the final frame and the 'Jacks never recovered in a 68-57 loss to their Southland Conference arch-rivals Saturday night inside William R. Johnson Coliseum.
The loss ended SFA's season as the 'Jacks finished in a tie for ninth place in the final version of the Southland Conference standings.
With that, the 'Jacks missed out on a spot in the Southland Conference Tournament for the first time since the 2004-05 season.
In his final collegiate game, Shannon Bogues finished with a team-high 17 points and went 5-8 from three-point range. Through his two-year career at SFA, Bogues poured in 1,075 points - the 27th-most by a single player in the history of the program.
John Comeaux contributed 13 points off the bench and went 3-4 from long range.
SFA will not turn their attention to the 2019-20 season while the Bearkats get a double-bye into the 2019 Southland Conference Tournament semifinals.
