HOUSTON – For all those looking for Texas Southern University souvenirs or apparel, you can check with your local Academy Sports & Outdoors stores in the Houston area starting this fall.

“This is a major milestone for TSU and our Athletic Department,” Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics Kevin Granger said in a TSU press release. “I would like to extend a special thanks to Cameron Bridgewater of Learfield and Academy Sports for their efforts in making this a reality. Now, our alumni and friends of the university will have the ability to purchase our merchandise at their many locations.”

Academy Sports & Outdoors is currently the official sporting goods and outdoor retailer of the Southwestern Athletic Conference, of which Texas Southern is a prominent member. In recent months, the men’s basketball team won the SWAC title and won their play-in game at the NCAA Tournament before succumbing to top-seeded Michigan.
