first_imgEach team roster will be comprised of four eligible seniors from the same Division I conference. Teams will be organized into eight pools of four and each team will be guaranteed three pool play games, earning $1,000 for every victory on Friday and Saturday. The top two teams in each pool will move on to Sunday’s knockout stage, where the stakes skyrocket. Only the teams competing in the tournament final will earn additional prize money, with the champions winning $100,000. An NABC All-Region 23 First Team Choice as well as an All-Southland Conference Second Team selection, Bogues ended his Lumberjack career earlier this month as one of the most prolific scorers in program history. Bogues became the first Lumberjack in twenty years to lead the Southland Conference in scoring, averaging a league-best 17.9 points per game. The Killeen, Texas, product scored at least 10 points in 31 consecutive outings dating back to the 2017-18 season which stands as the longest stretch of double-digit scoring outings in SFA’s NCAA-era history. His selection to the NABC All-District 23 First Team makes him only the second SFA player to ever earn multiple All-District awards from the NABC.  Thank you @3X3UHoops for the opportunity to represent my family, @SFA_MBB and @SouthlandSports.
