Despite taking the weekend off, Southern University baseball still clinched the Southwestern Athletic Conference western division title and head into the SWAC Baseball Tournament as the division's No. 1 seed.

The Jaguars will meet Alabama A&M (8-39, 6-16), the East No. 4 seed, in the first round of the conference tournament, which begins Wednesday from LaGrave Field in Fort Worth, Texas. First pitch for the Jaguars-Bulldogs matchup is slated for 3 p.m.

Southern, which had its exhibition series against LSU-Eunice cancelled due to rain, finished 20-21 overall, 14-10 in the West. Southern finished a game ahead of second place Arkansas-Pine Bluff, who split the season series with the Jaguars.

Live stats for Wednesday's first round will be available at SWAC.org and GoJagSports.com.

Senior starter Jesse "Doc" Holiday (6-3, 3.10 ERA) will receive the start in Wednesday's opener. Holiday, who has recorded 64 strikeouts this season, is coming off a 13-strikeout effort in a 4-6 loss to Jackson State on May 4.
