Cheering for SFA in the NCAA Tournament? You’re Not Alone.
With the NCAA tournament getting into full swing there are plenty of reasons not to get a bit of work done today.
Some offices will have the TVs on today and bracket-watchers will be throwing things at the wall when the Cinderella teams start causing thier brackets to implode.
East Texas is represented in the Big Dance by Stephen F. Austin, and the SFA Lumberjacks play tomorrow night in the first round. Nacogdoches is seeing t-shirts fly off the shelves.
The college book store on campus, B & N Bookstore in Nacogdoches, has seen the official NCAA tournament shirts that feature the Lumberjacks fly off the shelves this week. KTRE reports they're $25 a pop, and the store managed to sale more than a hundred shirts in just a few hours Tuesday. More shirts have been ordered, but they'll probably all be sold out by the end of the week. Some of the sales are local, and some are coming from across the US via the website.
