March 11, 2020 – Message about Southland Conference Tournament

Due to precautions related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the Southland Conference has limited fan access to all remaining Southland Conference Tournament basketball games, starting Thursday. Only the following will be allowed access to games: Members of participating teams, game officials, tournament staff, credentialed media, limited support personnel, and those on teams’ official pass lists. No tickets will be available for purchase at the Merrell Center.

Because of this, we will not host pregame events before each game as previously planned.

If you purchased all-session books through ACU: Information will be available soon regarding a refund. Fans will be contacted via their email address on file with ACU Athletics.

If you purchased tickets through Ticketmaster: Look for information from the Southland Conference and its member institutions regarding a refund policy.

All tournament games will be aired on ESPN+, with the men’s Saturday championship televised on ESPN2 and the women’s Sunday championship on the CBS Sports Network. Click here for more information.

Though we can’t be there in person, let’s still show our support for the Wildcats! Share photos and best wishes online using the hashtags #CatsInKaty and #ACUWildcats so everyone can see the ACU community rallying to support our two teams as they compete for another opportunity at the NCAA Tournament. Stay tuned for game details online at and Twitter.

Thank you for your understanding and support during this challenging time. We’re proud of what our Wildcats have accomplished this season and we’re excited to see them continue to succeed. 

Go Wildcats! 

Allen Ward
Director of Athletics
