Sun Belt Update

The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers bounced back from their home losses to Georgia State and Ark-Little Rock with a home win over Arkansas State, and road wins at La-Monroe and La-Lafayette.  In Sun Belt play, the Tops are now 1-2 at home, and 4-0 on the road.  The key to their success so far is that they are:  (1) leading the conference in defensive efficiency, and (2) making 34 percent of their three-pointers, which is not great but is an improvement from the dismal percentage they were shooting in non-conference play.  So the mysterious Tops have now climbed all the way up to second place in the Sun Belt standings:

80.  Georgia St.:  7-0
147.  W. Kentucky:  5-2
248.  Ark-Little Rock:  5-3
160.  Arkansas St:  4-3
206.  Tex-Arlington:  4-3
125.  La-Lafayette:  3-4
258.  La-Monroe:  3-4
253.  Texas St:  2-5
252.  Troy:  2-6
222.  S. Alabama:  1-6
