NOTES 

The Privateers are playing the Cowboys for the first time since 1989 when the two sides met in the NCAA Midwest Regional. Two of the five all-time meetings between the two teams have taken place in the postseason. 

New Orleans became the first team to qualify for the Southland Conference tournament last Friday. Their seed and first round opponent is still to be determined for the eight-team tournament, which starts in Hammond, La. on May 26. 

Josh Cerejo had his third relief appearance of two or more innings with no runs allowed when he dealt 2.2 scoreless against Lamar in the series finale. Cerejo has a 3.14 ERA in nine appearances this season. 

Chris Turpin now has six complete games on the season, with the latest coming against Lamar on May 15. Turpin has thrown a conference high 81.2 innings and has 87 strikeouts to just 12 walks. Turpin is at nine wins and his next would make him the second Privateer pitcher since 1996 to reach that mark. (Bryan Cryer-2008)
