So, what will it take to win the SWAC West?

“If we can go out and just be consistent, throw strikes, play good defense, have quality at bats, we’ll put ourself in position where we can clinch this weekend,” said head coach Kerrick Jackson.

“Just keep working hard," added infielder Malik Blaise. "We always find a way to get it done, so we just have to keep that mindset and just keep doing it.”

The Jags outscored the Panthers, 40-19, in their series in late March. Prairie View was swept last weekend at Texas Southern.

The first game of the series will start at 3 p.m. Friday.
