Southland Conference Tournament 2012: Bracket, Preview And More

UT-Arlington is the favorite to earn the Southland's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, after winning the regular season title in convincing fashion.

UT-Arlington will enter Wednesday's Southland Conference Tournament looking to match its regular season conference title with a tournament win, and a berth in the NCAA Tournament. The last time UTA won the Southland Tournament and went to the Big Dance, it was as a Cinderella No. 7 seed in 2008. But the favorites are steady winners at this event, as the regular season conference champion has won this tournament 22 of the last 31 times.

Wednesday, March 7 - Quarterfinals
Game 1: No. 7 Sam Houston State vs. No. 2 Stephen F. Austin, Noon
Game 2: No. 6 Northwestern State vs. No. 3 Lamar, 2:30 p.m.
Game 3: No. 8 Nicholls State vs. No. 1 UT Arlington, 6 p.m.
Game 4: No. 5 UTSA vs. No. 4 McNeese State, 8:30 p.m.
