Post Re: Sun Belt Tournament
Quarterfinals are here today. Bobcats take on ULM at 2pm.

Coastal and UTA start the action at 11:30. Winners of these two games will meet in the semi-finals tomorrow.

I'm going to gratuitously post part of my ULM preview from Saturday since not much has changed in 6 days:

Quote:
I've seen ULM play a few times this year, including in person in Strahan in January for the Bobcats 63-57 win earlier this season. The key to beating ULM is to wear them down or get them in foul trouble. They have no depth at all and heavily depend on just 6 guys. After those 6 their talent level drops significantly.

The top 3 players are Travis Munnings, Sam McDaniel, and Nick Coppola. Sophomore forward Munnings leads the way with 12.9 PPG and 8.0 RPG. At 6-6 Munnings is a dangerous player that can score in a variety of ways, including from 3 as he shoots 34.8% from there. Expect a matchup of best players on each team as Tilbury and Munnings will likely guard each other today. The 6-5 F/G McDaniel has also emerged as a big scoring threat this season as well as he's averaging 12.0 PPG. McDaniel is a "swingman" type player similar to Nijal Pearson that is a bit of a shooting guard/small forward hybrid. He takes the most shots on the team but isn't quite as dangerous from outside as Munnings. Given their similarities in size and playing style I'd expect another great matchup here as Pearson and McDaniel will likely guard each other. The other player to watch for ULM is the pesky senior PG Nick Coppola. Coppola is a bit of an annoying player if he's not on your team as he doesn't look the part of a star player. He's a pass first PG with a good outside shot (about 54% of his shots taken are from 3). He will look to get Munnings and McDaniel good looks but is certainly a scoring threat himself as he averages 9.6 PPG. Ojai Black and Coppola will be another fun matchup to watch.

Erick Neal NOT in the starting lineup for UTA vs. Coastal. Violation of team rules. Sounds minor and sounds like he's going to play.

14-9 ULM. 11:53 left in the half.

We've come out slow, ULM looks ready to go. Playing Wednesday may be an early advantage for them. Hopefully the advantage switches to us by the 2nd half.

2 early fouls for Tilbury too. He's going to sit for most of this half.

Coppola just picked up his 3rd foul.

Remember he played all 45 minutes against A-State. Coppola on the bench for the first time all tournament.
