By the time the Southland Player of the Year Jacob Parker finally broke into the scoring column, Stephen F. Austin had already established a healthy cushion.
It did it with offensive efficiency and a suffocating defense.
The Lumberjacks won their 28th game in a row and doubled a perfect conference record with a Southland Tournament Championship following a 68-49 rout of Sam Houston State.
Thomas Walkup had 19 points, while Parker finished with 10 points and 12 rebounds for Stephen F. Austin (31-2), which captured the conference crown for the first time since 2009.
The Lumberjacks tallied 16 assists on 25 made field goals and outrebounded their in-state Texas rivals 35-23.
No player scored in double figures for the Bearkats (23-10). Terrance Motley led them with nine points.
