09 Jan Trailblazer Tales – Stephen F. Austin and Sam Houston State
Utah Tech will play three of its next four games at home, beginning with a WAC date against Stephen F. Austin this Thursday night inside the Burns Arena. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. Thursday’s game will be the second-ever meeting between the Trailblazers and Lumberjacks on the hardwood, and is the first match-up played in St. George.
Last season, SFA handed Utah Tech a decisive 81-52 road loss in Nacogdoches, Texas. SFA travels to St. George as one of the hottest teams going in the WAC as the Lumberjacks have won six-straight and nine of their last 11 overall. The Jacks six-game win streak includes a 4-0 start in conference play, including home wins over New Mexico State and WAC preseason favorite Grand Canyon last weekend. Utah Tech will quickly turn around and host Sam Houston this Saturday night. Tip-off inside the Burns Arena is set for 7 p.m.
