The 2024 Southland Basketball tournament bracket

The Nicholls State University men’s basketball team is competing in the 2024 Southland Conference Tournament.

Nicholls secured the third seed and a bye week in the tournament after finishing 13-5 in conference play and 18-13 overall.

Led by the youngest coach in the country, first-year Nicholls Head Coach Tevon Saddler led the Colonels to the tournament for the fifth straight season.

The conference tournament winner secures a spot in the 2024 NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament.

The last time Nicholls won the tournament was in 1998, under Head Coach Rickey Broussard. The team’s NCAA tournament stay was cut short after losing to the University of Arizona in the round of 64.

The Colonels will play the winner of the sixth and seventh-seed game between Northwestern State University and Texas A&M University-Commerce in the second round on Monday, March 11.

All tournament games are played at The Legacy Center at McNeese State University in Lake Charles.

In addition, each tournament game will air on ESPN+, with the exception to the championship game which will air on ESPN2 on Wednesday, March 13.
