Recap: Stephen F Austin vs. Northwestern St

Katy, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Desmond Haymon erupted for 27 points, leading four players in double figures, as the Lumberjacks of Stephen F. Austin defeated Northwestern State, 85-78, in the semifinals of the Southland Conference Tournament at the Merrell Center.

Haymon knocked down 4-of-7 shots behind the 3-point line for top-seeded SFA (30-2) as the team's win streak reached a staggering 27 straight. Also hitting four shots from beyond the arc was Deshaunt Walker who finished with 15 points for the Lumberjacks, followed by Connor Brooks and Jacob Parker with 13 and 10 points, respectively.

The fourth-seeded Demons (17-14) were led by Jalen West and his game-high 36 points on 7-of-14 shooting on the perimeter. Zikiteran Woodley added 12 points and seven rebounds, followed by Marvin Frazier and DeQuan Hicks with 10 points apiece, the latter pulling down a game-high eight rebounds in a reserve role as well.

Northwestern State led by as many as seven points less than four minutes into the meeting, but the squad ended up shooting a mere 8-of-25 from the field in the period, en route to a 43-33 deficit at the break. Of the 17 made field goals logged by the Lumberjacks, seven came from the outside.

The Demons bounced back in the second half with a far more respectable 53.3 percent accuracy from the floor, but by then it was too late as SFA held on for the seven-point win.

The Lumberjacks will now take on Sam Houston State the title game on Saturday night, with a trip to the NCAA Tournament on the line.
