The Columbus State men's basketball team will be looking to end a losing streak that has lasted for 32 years when it plays at Montevallo on Wednesday night.

CSU has lost 13 straight games against the Falcons, dating to 1982.

But the game is a huge one for the Cougars for more than just ending a long losing streak.

The Cougars are in fifth place in the Peach Belt Conference's Western Division. But with Young Harris not eligible for the tournament, the Cougars would make the tournament if it started today. Young Harris is not eligible as it is not yet a full-fledged NCAA Division II member.

CSU is 6-9 in the PBC, one game ahead of Clayton State at 5-10 and two ahead of Georgia College at 4-11. The Cougars are 1 1-2 games behind North Georgia.

CSU, which has lost 3-of-4, plays its third straight road game Wednesday night at Montevallo, which leads the division at 12-3.

After a home game against Young Harris on Saturday, the Cougars finish the regular season with road games at North Georgia (Feb. 26) and Clayton State (March 1).

Meanwhile, the Lady Cougars are just a game out of the West lead after sweeping Georgia College and Augusta State last weekend.

CSU is 11-4 and in fourth place, a half-game behind Young Harris at 11-3 and a game behind both North Georgia and Clayton State at 12-3.

The Lady Cougars clinched a berth in the PBC tournament with its win over Georgia College on Saturday.

The PBC tournament will at CSU's Lumpkin Center next month.
