ALEXANDRIA, La. -- The preseason No. 2 LSUA Generals men's basketball team tips off the season Wednesday night against Xavier at The Fort at 7 p.m.
The Generals are coming off of last season's undefeated run to a Fab Four appearance in the NAIA National Championship Tournament, and looking to visit their fourth-straight national tournament this year, in as many years for the program.
"You can't control how great you play sometimes but you can control your effort," said head coach Larry Cordaro. "Whether it be coming to work each day or performing in the Fort in front of the crowd, our effort needs to be at an all-time high level. We have a tall task: there's a lot of teams out there in the country and in our conference that are pushing after us, so we have to raise our game again."
LSUA is 39-0 when defending The Fort, and look to extend that undefeated streak.
