Southall interested in returning to UL

Could Robert Lee do even better next yeat?

Lee's first season as head coach of Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns has been a solid success, and if some pieces fall into place next year could be just as impressive.

The Cajuns (17-8, 11-2) finish the regular season this week with a Sun Belt Conference Western Division title up for grabs in games at Arkansas State and Arkansas-Little Rock.

Seniors Orien Greene, Brian Hamilton, Chris Cameron and Dwayne Mitchell are attempting to finish their UL careers on a high note with a second straight NCAA Tournament appearance.

But Mitchell is currently appealing to the NCAA in order to regain another year of eligibility with the Cajun program, and his athletic overall game and leadership would be a major addition on the 2005-2006 squad.

Likewise, Cameron could file an appeal and possibly play another year at center.

Then there is the mystery element.

Former Ragin' Cajun Michael Southall has expressed interest in returning to the UL program once he clears up legal questions in his home state of Wisconsin.
