UTA are Sun Belt Hoops Favs for Men ... & Women
It's official. UTA are the favorites for both the men's and women's Sun Belt Conference titles.

Is this the first time a Sun Belt school was the favorite to win both the men's and women's regular season title?

I think you're right. WKU has had a great athletic program for a long time.

We were the first program outside of WKU to actually win the conference tourney last year for both men's and women's in the same year

(Women have won it last 2 years)

I'm not knowledgeable enough with the women's side to know, but I agree with UTA being the preseason fav on the men's side.

Returning Hervey and Neal is enough for me to put them #1.

I actually think I'd put Georgia Southern at #2. Brown, Smith, Hughes is such a nasty combo in the backcourt and those guys are finally upperclassmen. Troy is probably top 3 for me with Varnado and Person both returning. Georgia State/Louisiana in the mix also.

Georgia State will be pretty good I think. UTA will probably win the regular season and then lose in like the second round of the tournament as usual. Were even good at this in the SLC

I’m with you on GS. Their guards are great, and it was kind of funny seeing how all the GS picks on the preseason all-SBC team didn’t translate into their being slotted in at #2. (I realize there was a razor thin margin for several picks after the Mavs though...)

Wrong. Little Rock did it in 2011.

Are the lady Mavs really the favs for the girls? What happened to LR/ A-State/ Troy? Usually are all very solid at girls hoops.
