A lot has happened since

A lot has happened since I last sat down to write a blog…

After a fast start to Sun Belt Conference play, we hit a few bumps in the road. At one point we had lost three straight and five of six. In some ways it was similar to what we went through last season. And, as we did in 2014, we finished the 2015 regular season strong. We were 8-2 in our final ten games and we take a six-game winning streak into the Sun Belt Tournament.

Overall we are 19-12 and 13-7 in league play and for the third straight season we led the Sun Belt in scoring, assists and rebounding margin. But none of that matters now. It’s all about winning three games in three days in New Orleans.

Georgia State won the regular season and is once again the No. 1 seed in the tournament. From top to bottom, the Sun Belt has been very strong this season. Five teams won ten or more conference games and every team finished in double-digits in overall wins. So it’s a credit to Coach Ron Hunter and his teams that they were able to win the league.

By virtue of our strong finish we are the No. 4 seed in the tournament and will face Texas State on Friday evening in the quarterfinals. The semifinals are Saturday and the Championship game with be played early Sunday afternoon. It should be a very competitive few days in New Orleans.
