What to Know

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and the Arkansas State Red Wolves are set to clash at 6 p.m. ET Feb. 28 at Pensacola Bay Center in the first round of the Sun Belt Conference Tourney. The Red Wolves will be strutting in after a win while Coastal Carolina will be stumbling in from a loss.

The Chanticleers were expected to have a tough go of it this past Friday, and, well, they did. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 95-74 punch to the gut against the Troy Trojans.

Meanwhile, things were close when Arkansas State and the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks clashed this past Friday, but Arkansas State ultimately edged out the opposition 64-61.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Coastal Carolina is expected to win a tight contest Tuesday. But bettors beware: they are only 2-5 against the spread when favored.

When the two teams last met earlier in the regular season, Coastal Carolina lost to the Red Wolves on the road by a decisive 73-57 margin. Can the Chanticleers avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
