The other quarterfinal features a battle of nationally-ranked teams in Texas Lutheran and Trinity on Friday at 4:30 p.m.

Centenary swept the Pirates earlier this season in Shreveport. After a 6-1 win in the series opener April 5, the Gents took a doubleheader on April 7 by scores of 6-5 and 8-0.

Regardless of the outcome in the quarterfinals, Centenary will take on either Texas Lutheran or Trinity Saturday afternoon. A win in the quarterfinals means a noon game on Saturday. If the Gents fall, they will play at 3:30 p.m.

If Centenary is 1-1 after its first two games of the tournament, it will take on the other 1-1 team on Saturday at 7 p.m.

The two remaining teams in the SCAC Tournament will play in the championship finals Sunday afternoon at noon.
