On the heels of clinching their third straight Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship, the UST Celts stand to make school history by becoming the first team to ever win the Regular Season and Conference Tournament title in the same season.

Wrapping up the 2021-22 season with a 20-5 record, going 14-2 in conference play, the University of St. Thomas has earned the top-seed in this year's SCAC Basketball Tournament. Taking 12 of their last 13 games, now riding a nine-game winning streak, the Celts are looking to claim the tournament title for the second consecutive year.

St. Thomas will face off in the semifinals with the winner between the fourth-seeded Texas Lutheran Bulldogs and the fifth-seeded Centenary College Gents.

The SCAC Basketball Tournament will take place on the campus of Austin College in Sherman, Texas. Tipoff is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 25, and will conclude with the championship round on Sunday, Feb. 27.
