Georgia State Holds Off UTA to Win Sun Belt Men's Basketball Tournament Title - Mar 12, 2018

D'Marcus Simonds (6'3''-G-97) scored 27 points and Georgia State defeated UTA 74-61 Sunday to win the Sun Belt Conference Tournament championship.
No. 2 seed Georgia State (24-10) will be making its fourth NCAA Tournament appearance and first since 2015. Fourth-seeded UTA, which upset Sun Belt regular-season champion Louisiana in the semifinals, fell to 21-13.
The Panthers, who set school records for 3-point percentage and 3-pointers made this season, connected on 8 of 17 from beyond the arc. The Mavericks made 4 of 25 3-pointers and shot 29.8 percent (17 of 57) from the floor.
Simonds, the Sun Belt Player of the Year who set the Panthers' single-season scoring record during a semifinal victory against Georgia Southern on Saturday, was chosen the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.
Devin Mitchell (6'4''-G-96) added 13 points before fouling out, and Malik Benlevi (6'5''-F-97) scored 11 for GSU.
Johnny Hamilton (7'0''-C) led the Mavericks with 23 points and 14 rebounds, Erick Neal (5'10''-G-95) scored 12, Kevin Hervey (6'9''-F-96) had 11 and Kaelon Williams 10. Neal, who had averaged a tournament-best 27.5 points in the previous two games, made 2 of 15 shots, including 1 of 9 3-pointers.
GSU led by three at halftime, but UTA twice cut the lead to one early in the second half. Simonds scored four points during an 11-1 run that gave the Panthers a 46-35 lead.
After Hamilton made a free throw, Benlevi scored five points to start an 11-2 run that put the Panthers in command.
Simonds scored 10 points as GSU opened a 22-15 lead midway through the first half. Hevery made a 3-pointer for UTA before the Panthers scored eight consecutive points to take a 30-18 lead. Wilson's three-point play ended the run and Hervey and Neal each made a 3-pointer to get the Mavericks within 33-30 at halftime.

BIG PICTURE
UTA: In its first appearance in the Sun Belt title game since joining the league in 2013-14, UTA fell short of what would have been its second trip to the NCAA Tournament.
GSU: After winning its second Sun Belt tournament title in four years, GSU takes a four-game winning streak into the NCAA Tournament.

Georgia State Notes
Devin Mitchell's three three-pointers brought his season total to 97, breaking the tie with Thomas Terrell for the second most three-point field goals in Panther history.
D'Marcus Simonds finished the game with 4 assists to bring his season total to 152, breaking the tie with Melvin Howard for the fourth-most single-season assists in Panther history.
Since joining the Sun Belt Conference five years ago, GSU has now won two conference regular titles and two tournament titles (2015, 2018).
GSU held UTA to season lows in field goals made (17) as well as field goal (29.8 percent) and three point percentages (16 percent).
In their previous two matchups, the duo of Kevin Hervey and Erik Neal averaged a combined 45 points per game on 48.4 percent shooting. Today, the Panthers limited them to only 22 points on 13.8 percent shooting.

UTA Notes
GSU ended the half one for their last nine field goals, allowing UTA to go on a 12-3 run.
UTA's one steal was a season low.
UTA's four three pointers tied a season low.
Erik Neal finished with the most points (68) in the 2018 Sun Belt Tournament, with the best point-per-game average for players that advanced past the first round (22.6).
