Cajuns to Face Creighton in NCAA Tournament
Earlier on Sunday, Xavian Rimmer scored a career-high 27 points, and Louisiana rallied from a 9-point deficit in the last three minutes of regulation to force overtime and beat Georgia State 82-81 in the Sun Belt Conference Championship game.
Should the Cajuns beat Creighton they would meet the Nebraska-Baylor winner on Sunday.
"They've got one of the best forwards in college basketball, but I think we have a great defense, and we're hot right now, so I think we've got a good chance to upset them," Cajun guard Elfrid Payton said."
"I feel very confident going into the game," Cajun forward Shawn Long said. "This group of guys we've got, I think we can play with anybody in the country."
The Cajuns' last win in the NCAA Tournament was 87-83 upset of No. 4 Oklahoma in 1992.
"It's big," Payton said. "I'm really excited to go into the NCAA Tournament. I think we're a team to watch out for. I feel we can score in so many ways, and now that our defense has picked up these last 11, 12 games we can play with anybody."
