Three Lumberjacks earn postseason recognition

Southland Conference officials announced the league's postseason all-conference awards Tuesday, and three Lumberjacks were among the honorees. Stephen F. Austin junior Eddie Williams was named to the second team, senior Walt Harris took third-team honors, and redshirt sophomore Jereal Scott earned honorable mention.

This marks the third straight year for SFA to land multiple selections on one of the top three teams and the third time in as many seasons for the 'Jacks to put at least one player on the second team.

Williams' second-team honor is the first All-Southland award of his career. The junior shooting guard/small forward has been a key defensive stopper for the 'Jacks this season, typically drawing the duty of defending the opponent's top backcourt player. At the other end of the floor, Williams leads the team in scoring with 13.4 points per game. His 5.7 rebounds per game rank second on the team. Williams was also second on the team with 78 assists and finished the regular season second in the Southland Conference with 2.0 steals per contest.

Long, cold winter delays azaleas

If you've driven along University Drive lately and wondered why the Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden isn't illuminated with flowery speckles of pink and purple a week into March, you can blame our long, cold and gray winter.

The garden's research associate for development, Barbara Stump, said that the stubbornly low temperatures have kept the azalea blooms packed tightly inside their buds longer than usual.

"Normally, in the azalea garden, we would have a number of azaleas that had bloomed around Feb. 15 and on to now," Stump said. "Well, we're now about three weeks behind."

But the weather we've been experiencing lately that has temperatures climbing into the 60s has helped the situation, she explained.

SFA History

In March 1937, the New London School explodes, killing hundreds, including 10 teachers educated at SFA.

The New London School explosion occurred on March 18, 1937, when a natural gas leak caused an explosion, destroying the London School of New London, Texas, a community in Rusk County previously known as "London." The disaster killed in excess of 295 students and teachers, making it the worst catastrophe to take place in a U.S. school building.
