Streaking Prairie View stares down FDU, wants 'big dogs' next

Prairie View A&M has turned the page since the calendar flipped to 2019, answering an 11-game losing skid by capping a scintillating 21-1 run, capped with its first tournament title in 21 years.

The Southwest Athletic Conference champion Panthers (22-12) aim to continue their good fortune on Tuesday when they battle Fairleigh Dickinson (20-13) in the NCAA Tournament West Region play-in game at Dayton, Ohio. The winner of the First Four contest advances to face No. 1 seed Gonzaga (30-3) on Thursday in Salt Lake City.

"We're going to use that as a tune-up game, to play another team outside of our conference and then hopefully be victorious to play Gonzaga," Prairie View A&M senior guard Gary Blackston told the Houston Chronicle. "We've won (21 of the last 22 games), we don't really have a losing feeling right now, and we just want to continue to win. We just want to show the nation how hard we play."
