It’s Championship Sunday. It is the day that we have all waited for and now the Panthers are just 40 minutes from the NCAA tournament. I thought about what I would write for the Men’s Basketball Gameday Nugget if we got to this point as there are obviously a lot of different directions I could go.
At the end of the day, I decided for a little Georgia State-NCAA tournament recap.
So here you go, the Sun Belt Championship edition of the Men’s Basketball Gameday Nugget:
Georgia State will play in its first conference tournament championship game since 2002. It will mark the fifth time the Panthers play for an automatic bid in the NCAA tournament (1991, 1992, 2001, 2002, 2014). GSU is 2-2 all-time in those games.
The Panthers are 6-1 all-time in conference tournaments as the No. 1 seed, winning the TAAC tournament in 2001 and falling in the final in 2002.
If you did not make it to New Orleans, make sure to watch on ESPN2 or listen to Dave Cohen and Brandon Leak on 1340 the Fan 3 or WRAS-FM 88.5
