The third-seeded Georgia Southern Eagles rolled all over the sixth-seeded Louisiana Monroe Warhawks in the Sun Belt Conference tournament on Friday afternoon. The Eagles were able to drop 80 or more points in five straight games as they took a 16-point lead at the break and never looked back in route to a victory.
The Mavericks of UT Arlington will play their first game of the Sun Belt Conference tournament as they will square up versus a solid team in the Eagles of Georgia Southern. The Mavericks enter this contest winners of four straight games while also picking up a victory over the Eagles in January of this year.
Georgia Southern Eagles
In their last outing versus the Mavericks, Georgia Southern had a total of five double-digit scorers on the night led by leading scorer on the season Tookie Brown with 11. On the other hand, Montae Glenn along with Quan Jackson also chipped in 10 points apiece as they combined to pull down 11 rebounds, total.
However, Georgia Southern allowed nine three point shots to UT Arlington in this contest while 12 turnovers certainly did not bode well for them picking up the win, either. They will certainly seek to reverse the trends in this all-important contest on Saturday afternoon as they have truly been outstanding on the offensive end entering this matchup.
Brown is continuing to average 18 points per game on 50% shooting in addition to 36% shooting from long-range from the season. On the other hand, forward Glenn (10 ppg, 7 rebs) continues to be a great on both ends of the floor as he has recorded a double-double in two of the last three games for the Eagles.
Finally, Jackson is averaging 15 points along with grabbing five rebounds per game for the Eagles this season. And while he has been a bit inconsistent from the floor in recent outings, he continues to shoot well over 40% from the floor along with 36% from three-point range.
The Mavericks were able to beat up on the second seeded Texas State Bobcats in their last outing to end the regular season. During this contest, UT Arlington not only forced 13 turnovers for Texas State, but was also able to get a solid night from Brian Warren, who posted 24 points in the contest while going 4-7 from long range.
For the season, Warren is averaging 15 points per game and has truly been a huge source of offensive production for the team. Edric Dennis was the only other double-digit score for UT Arlington in they win over the Bobcats as he poured in 15 points in the winning effort.
And while UT Arlington may not rank as one of the best offensive teams in the nation in averaging less than 70 points per game along with shooting 41% as a team on the year. Yet, they possess one of the best defenses in the nation, in my opinion, as they allow only 42% shooting to opponents on a nightly basis.
In fact, during their four-game winning streak, opponents are averaging a tad less than 70 points per game. Most importantly, the Mavericks were able to neutralize an offense for the Eagles in their last meeting as they allowed just 44% shooting along with permitting the Eagles to connect on just 23% of their 3-pointers on the night.

Free Georgia Southern Eagles vs. UT-Arlington Mavericks NCAAB Prediction:
This will certainly be an interesting matchup amongst an explosive offense for the Eagles versus a solid defense for the Mavericks. In the end, I happen to strongly believe that the Eagles have many more playmakers that will play a huge role in Georgia State picking up a 78-70 win over the Mavericks. Look for Georgia State to pull away late in this contest en route to the victory.

The Eagles are shooting 50% as a team for the year while also averaging well over 80 points per game. Also, they enter this matchup scoring 80 or more points in their last five matchups. And while UT-Arlington will come with focus on the defensive end, they will not have the consistency on offense in which to allow the game to remain tight in the end.
