Another SWAC title has TSU riding high

HOUSTON, Texas -- This is what Texas Southern men's basketball head coach Mike Davis envisioned when he took the helm in 2012.

He wanted to make TSU a basketball school. Conference championships help do that.

The Tigers (16-12, 15-1 in SWAC play) won a third regular-season SWAC title in four years after a 96-86 win over Alabama State on Monday.

"I want to take this job to another level," Davis said. "Make it when people play us, that we get great respect and make our fans excited about the season every year.

"I want them to expect this every year."

TSU has four regular-season conference titles since 2011. The Tigers also have three consecutive conference tournament titles. Winning a fourth consecutive conference tournament is the supreme goal now that the calendar has turned to March.
