Rams basketball team gears up to meet Tarleton in the Sweet Sixteen

Angelo State University’s men’s basketball team will face Tarleton State in the South Central Regional Tournament final for the second consecutive year. The Rams take the court at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The Rams enter the regional finale 25-6 overall and 2-1 against Tarleton State this season. ASU holds the all-time series lead over Tarleton State, 38-34, and made its last appearance in the South Central Regional final in 2015, where they lost to the Texans with a final score of 66-64. That game was the only time in program history that the two teams have met in the NCAA tournament.
