Sun Belt Basketball Championship 2012: FIU And FAU Women's Teams Come Up Short

While both the FAU and FIU men's basketball teams were eliminated in the first round of the Sun Belt Tournament, their women's teams put on proud showings for their schools. Both teams lasted deep in the Sun Belt Tournament, going as far as the semi-finals before losing to the two No. 1 seeds in the tournament -- Middle Tennessee and UALR.

In yesterday's action, No. 2 FIU fell to No. 1 Middle Tennessee 63-53, as the Golden Panthers let the game slip away from them in the final five minutes of action. They had closed to within two points of Middle Tennessee, but then got outscored 10-2 over the final five minutes to seal their fate.

Meanwhile, No. 3 FAU fared worse against No. 1 UALR, losing 59-42. They started off the game strong, scoring the first four points of the game, but it was all downhill from there as the Trojans took the lead and held it for the remainder of the game.

UALR and Middle Tennessee will face off Tuesday at 2:00pm EST in the Sun Belt Championship game. In the men's tournament, No. 5 North Texas and No. 7 WKU will face in the championship game tonight at 7:00pm EST. The women's championship will be broadcast on ESPNU, while the men's championship will be shown on ESPN2.

Sun Belt Tournament 2012: Monday's Bracket And Schedule

Every year, the Sun Belt Tournament is one of the first and earliest college basketball tournaments to happen. While the larger conferences are just kicking off their tournaments today, getting in some early-round action, the Sun Belt Tournament has already played two rounds and is gearing up for the semi-finals tonight.

In the Men's basketball bracket, the two match-ups tonight are a tad surprising. The top two seeds in the tournament (No. 1 Middle Tennessee, No. 2 UALR) were knocked out this weekend by No. 9 Arkansas State and No. 7 WKU in large upsets, so the final four teams are an odd mix. No. 5 North Texas will face No. 9 Arkansas State at 6:00pm, and No. 3 Denver will face No. 7 WKU at 8:30pm. The winners of these two games will face off in the championship game Tuesday at 6:00pm.

Meanwhile, the women's bracket looks more like you'd expect. Both of the top seeds have cruised through the tournament so far -- No. 1 Middle Tennessee and No. 1 UALR -- and both of the Florida schools have managed to stay alive in the tournament thus far. Today's match-ups are No. 1 Middle Tennessee versus No. 3 FIU (12:00pm), and No. 1 UALR and No. 2 FAU (2:30pm).
