The men's basketball team defeated Georgia Southern University 67-58 on Saturday to secure its spot in the 2019 Sun Belt Conference Men’s Basketball Championship finals.

If the team wins the championship, it will earn a spot in the 2019 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament later this month. The Mavericks haven't qualified for the tournament since 2008.

This is head coach Chris Ogden's first Sun Belt Conference Championship with the team.
