Against Georgia State in the quarterfinals, Omier tied for a team-high with 16 points while once again pulling down 18 rebounds.

Omier becomes the ninth A-State player to earn Sun Belt Conference All-Tournament Team accolades, the first since Ed Townsel at the 2014 SBC Tournament. He is the 11th player in program history to earn All-Tournament team honors spanning the Southland Conference (1981-87), American South Conference (1988-91) and Sun Belt Conference (1992-present). He is the first freshman to earn SBC All-Tournament Team honors since three players earned the honors at the 2012 SBC Championship.
