Troy defeated South Alabama for the second consecutive game at Riddle-Pace Field last night, clinching a berth in the Sun Belt Tournament.  Meanwhile, South Alabama fell to ninth place and no longer controls its own destiny to make the tournament, which they host next week.

UT ARLINGON (18-11) will be the #2 seed with a win OR an Arkansas State loss.  They will be the #3 seed with a loss AND an Arkansas State win.

ARKANSAS STATE (17-2) will be the #2 seed with a win AND a UT Arlington loss.  In any other scenario, they will be the #3 seed.

TEXAS STATE (16-13) is the #4 seed and will play WKU in their first round game on Wednesday.

WKU (15-14) is the #5 seed and will play Texas State in their first round game Wednesday
