KATY, Texas — The top-seeded Sam Houston State Bearkats were upset in the Southland Conference Semifinals on Friday by the fourth-seeded New Orleans Privateers, 79-76.

Senior guard Josh Delaney missed a pull up three-pointer at the buzzer that would have sent the game to overtime.

The Bearkats did win the SLC regular season title, which guarantees them a spot in the NIT postseason tournament.
