The 2013 Southwest Athletic Conference Tournament officially kicked off on Wednesday. With only seven teams qualified to participate in the postseason, there was just one first-round game played Wednesday. Let's take a look.
No. 6 Alabama A&M Bulldogs 59, Grambling State Tigers 51
Grambling State is one of the biggest Eeyore stories in the nation, finishing the regular season with a 0-27 record. They actually had a chance to break that ignominious streak Wednesday night, going into halftime with a 28-25 lead over the Bulldogs. Unfortunately, Alabama A&M would dominate the second half and send the Tigers home with a fat goose-egg on the season. At least their marching band is still cool.
Here's Thursday's schedule for the rest of the first round:
--No. 2 Jackson State Tigers vs. No. 5 Alabama State Hornets, 12:30 p.m. ET
--No. 3 Alcorn State Braves vs. No. 4 Prairie View A&M Panthers, 8 p.m. ET
