Stillman basketball teams enter tournament on winning streaks

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama -- The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference is having its tournament in Birmingham at the Bill Harris Arena starting today and running through Saturday. Both the Stillman men and women's basketball teams are competing for a chance at the title this year and both are coming into the tournament with a winning streak.

The men's team has won 14 games in a row and 19 of its last 20. Stillman finished its regular season with a 23-5 (17-1 SIAC) record to grab a first round bye and the SIAC West No. 1 seed. The Tigers won't play until Wednesday against the winner of Clark Atlanta vs. Tuskegee University.

“It's been a blessing the whole year. We've been working hard as team getting better on and off the court,” senior guard Devin McNeil said. “We are coming (into the SIAC Tournament) thinking it's a new season, the championship is up for grabs, and everybody is coming to play hard because it's their last go-around too.”
