A-State Women’s Hoops Picked To Finish Fourth In Sun Belt West Division

November 5, 2020

JONESBORO, Ark. (11/5/20) – Arkansas State women’s basketball was projected to finish fourth in the Sun Belt Conference’s West Division this season, the league announced Thursday.

The divisional poll is released as the conference is slated to shift to a division-only schedule for the 2020-21 season. UT Arlington was selected to win the division, followed by Louisiana and Little Rock. Texas State was picked fifth while ULM rounds out the division in sixth. In the overall poll, the Red Wolves were picked to finish seventh behind Coastal Carolina.

A-State posted an 8-10 record in league action last season, going 3-5 versus division foes. With the division-only schedule, Sun Belt teams will not face interdivisional opponents until the Sun Belt Tournament, which is slated for March 5-8 in Pensacola, Florida.

On the East side, Troy was picked to win, followed by South Alabama and Coastal Carolina. Appalachian State, Georgia State and Georgia Southern round out that division.

A-State is slated to begin conference play on January 1, hosting ULM. The 2020 non-conference schedule will be released at a later date.
