After upsetting Baylor, Texas Southern hopes to stay levelheaded against third-ranked Gonzaga

Texas Southern coach Johnny Jones and several of his key players have toured some of the toughest venues in college basketball. The Tigers traditionally play a road-heavy, nonconference schedule stocked with premier programs. First-year head coach Jones is familiar with tough arenas across the country and particularly in the SEC after a five-year head coaching stint at LSU. Gonzaga and the 6,000-seat McCarthey Athletic Center present a unique challenge, Jones said.
