Third Times a Charm; Southwestern Upsets #1 Seed Trinity 68-63

Behind junior guard Anthony Cox's 18 points, five assists and solid play the No. 3 West seeded Southwestern University Pirates earned a spot in its first ever SCAC Championships game by beating rival No. 1 West seeded Trinity University 68-63 on Saturday evening.

Coz shot 70 percent (7-for-10) from the floor. The Pirates used a 30-12 points in the paint margin to its advantage. Andrew McDonald chipped in with 15 points for the Pirates. Trinity's B.J. Moon, the hero against Sewanee on Firday, paced the Tigers with 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting, including 4-of-10 from beyond the arc.
