Updated Sun Belt Conference standings and tournament bracket
Strange week in the Sun Belt Conference with the Monday makeup game between Georgia State and South Alabama and only two games on the schedule for Saturday. Of note should be that UALR's Saturday opponent, Western Kentucky, has Thursday off. This is the fourth consecutive week UALR has faced a Saturday opponent that didn't have to play on Thursday.
The only mover in the standings this week was Louisiana-Lafayette up from 7 to 5. Their victory over Louisiana-Monroe helps them win a three-way tiebreak that includes ULM and Texas-Arlington.
Biggest games in the Sun Belt this week both involve UALR. The Trojans host No. 1 Georgia State on Thursday and No. 2 Western Kentucky on Saturday.
Those games will have UALR already playing 12 of its 18 conference games. By week's end, no other Sun Belt school will have played 11 and most will only be at 10. UALR has yet to have either a Thursday or Saturday off in conference play.
