Arkansas-Little Rock Wins Sun Belt Tourney, Moves On To 2011 NCAA Tournament

The Arkansas-Little Rock Trojans were largely thought of as an afterthought entering the 2011 Sun Belt conference tournament and especially not in the final, where they faced the North Texas Mean Green who swept the Mean Green in the regular season. However, not of that mattered tonight in Hot Springs, where Arkansas-Little Rock captured the Sun Belt automatic bid by defeating UNT 64-63 as the conference player of the year Soloman Bozeman hit a three-pointer with a second left for the win.
This will be UALR's first appearance in a postseason tournament since making the 1996 NIT and their first March Madness appearance since 1990.
