NEW ORLEANS — The No. 2-seed Lady Toppers will look to secure the program’s 17th NCAA Tournament berth against No. 1-seed Arkansas State in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament Championship game on Saturday at 8 p.m. in Lakefront Arena.
A win against the Red Wolves would also give WKU (23-8) its 10th Sun Belt Conference Tournament crown and its 10th straight victory dating back to the regular season.
WKU dropped both regular-season meetings against the Red Wolves by a combined six points. Redshirt freshman guard Kendall Noble, who tallied 19 points in the semifinal victory over Arkansas-Little Rock, recorded 27 points and three steals in a losing effort against Arkansas State (22-10) on Feb. 5.
Arkansas State owned the league’s best record through the regular season, going 14-4 while the Lady Toppers were right behind the Red Wolves with a record of 13-5.
