VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - The Valdosta State men know they have to repeat as Gulf South Conference champions in order to make the NCAA DII field.The Blazers have 20 wins but are not ranked among the top ten in the latest DII south regional ranking.VSU plays at 3:45pm eastern Friday at Southaven, Ms.
That means the Blazers have to earn the GSC's automatic bid as conference champion to make the tournament field.
Head coach Mike Helfer is not thinking about winning the GSC tournament.
His focus is on just winning their quarterfinal game Friday against Delta State.
Mike Helfer said. "If you make it past the first day, you just got to find a way to play another great team the second day and etc. on Sunday. Again those teams that look past the first day are those teams that are on the bus home Friday night."
