The Lady Pilots won both regular season meetings against Texas College taking the first game in Tyler, Tex., 77-62 and a 30-point lop-sided victory 82-52 on Monday at The Dock. LSUS will be in search of their first conference tournament title.

To advance to the NAIA National Tournament the Lady Pilots must win their first two games in the RRAC Tournament and make it to the championship game. If they face #1 Langston in the championship game then the Lady Pilots would clinch a spot in the National Tournament. However, if the Lady Pilots reach the championship game against another school other than Langston, then they would have to win the tournament to advance.
