FIU's Sun Belt Tournament matchups

So the field is set for Hot Springs.

Isiah Thomas' men's team (10-18, 5-11 SBC), the sixth seed in the East, will face W3 Denver (13-16, 9-7) Saturday night, a rematch of last year's opening-round game, won by the Pioneers 71-64. Denver defeated FIU at home 79-70 in overtime back on Jan. 13.

On the women's side, FIU (15-15, 10-6) has a bye Saturday, and will play the winner of ULM-Troy in the quarterfinals. The Panthers swept the season series against the Trojans, but lost to ULM 56-42 on Jan. 2, the teams' only meeting.

Submitted my All-Sun Belt ballot today for both men's and women's awards, which should be released Thursday. Can't discuss my selections, but if I were a betting man, I'd say Thursday will be a good day for Jerica Coley. And maybe Cindy Russo.
