The Atlantic Sun race looks just like the Missouri Valley's: five teams with guady league records battling it out for conference supremacy. Well, at least until you look at the RPI numbers. Tonight is Thrill-A-Minute Thursday, as the A-Fun hosts two meaningful separation games among its elite. East Tennesee State travels to Florida Atlantic
in one matchup, and we've got the other one here on G!O!T!N!, a battle between a resurgent conference favorite (that would be 10-6 G-Webb) against co-leader Belmont (12-4).
Belmont is the hottest team int he conference right now, with the seventh-best shooting in the land (49.3%) and a six-game winning streak during which they've topped FAU
and fellow 12-4 Mercer
. The Runnin' Bulldogs from Boiling Springs have shaken off a four-game January skid and have won seven of eight. Their two big guys, Brian Bender
and Simon Conn
, are both averaging 14.9 ppg, and will attempt to provide you, the listening public, with exactly one thrill per minute.
