Abilene Christian wins Southland for 1st NCAA berth

KATY, Texas (AP) Jaylen Franklin couldn't hide his emotions after Abilene Christian's climb to its first NCAA Tournament was complete.

Jaren Lewis had 20 points and six rebounds, Franklin added 16 points and six assists, and the Wildcats beat New Orleans 77-60 on Saturday night to win the Southland Conference championship.

Following the final buzzer, Lewis and Franklin hugged and Franklin cried a bit, while Abilene Christian coach Joe Golding ran around looking for someone to hug.
