Throw out the stats when it comes to a rival game. For the third time this season Southwestern and Trinity squared off, however, for the first time since the 2004-05 season it was Southwestern turning up roses with a 68-63 win.
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 Saturday.
Cox shot 70 percent (7-for-10) from the floor and 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.
Southwestern will face first-seeded Centre tomorrow at 2:30 pm from Grove Gymnasium on the campus of Hendrix College. Southwestern lost by ten, 73-63, in their first and only match-up of the year at Centre.
