NACOGDOCHES, Texas (AP) -- Stephen F. Austin is headed to the NCAA tournament as the first 30-win team in Southland Conference history.

The Lumberjacks have more wins than Karl Malone's Louisiana Tech team that went to the Sweet 16 and finished 29-3 in 1985. SFA's No. 12 seed in the South Region is the best for the conference since Malone's bunch was at No. 5.

The Lumberjacks play in San Diego on Friday against VCU, one of the few double-digit seeds to reach the Final Four when the Rams made it to Houston at No. 11 in 2011.

Led by Southland Conference player of the year Jacob Parker, Stephen F. Austin has a 28-game winning streak, second in the country behind undefeated and top-seeded Wichita State.
