Sun Belt Update

Here are the final standings in the Sun Belt Conference:

63.  Georgia St:  17-1
179.  W. Kentucky:  12-6
115.  La-Lafayette:  11-7
153.  Arkansas St:  10-8
210.  Tex-Arlington:  9-9
219.  Ark-Little Rock: 9-9
269.  La-Monroe:  7-11
246.  Troy:  6-12
261.  S. Alabama: 5-13
279.  Texas St:  4-14

Here's what has happened in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament so far.  (S. Alabama and Texas State were not eligible):

Thursday, March 13:
Ark-Little Rock  74, Troy 61
Tex-Arlington 68, La-Monroe 65

Friday, March 14:
Arkansas St. 116, Ark-Little Rock 114 (4 OT) (!!!)
La-Lafayette 91, Tex-Arlington 85

So this sets up tonight's semi-finals at the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans (times Central):

Georgia St. v. Arkansas St.
W. Kentucky v. La-Lafayette

Western has famously won eight SBC Tournament games in a row, and has fought its way into the NCAA Tournament each of the last two years.  But Western's last game was a 73-55 loss at Georgia State, so the Tops have another uphill battle ahead of them.
