LAFAYETTE – After wrapping up the regular season with a win over Texas State, No. 4 Louisiana enters Sun Belt Conference Tournament play on Tuesday when it hosts Georgia Southern at the Cajundome. Tipoff is slated for 7 p.m.

Louisiana (17-12, 10-8 SBC) will be hosting a Sun Belt Tournament game for the first time since the 2006-07 season. The team won two games in that tournament before losing to Middle Tennessee, 77-67, on March 6, 2007.

In its last regular season contest, Louisiana picked up a big win over Texas State by a score of 70-64. Skyler Goodwin led four Cajuns in double figures with 17 points, just ahead of Kimberly Burton (15) and Brandi Williams (12).

Junior Ty'Reona Doucet, who scored 10 points and brought down a team-best nine rebounds in the win over the Bobcats, was named to the Sun Belt All-Conference Second Team after a dominant junior year. Doucet leads the team in scoring (12.4 ppg) and rebounding (7.4 rpg) this season.

Louisiana and Georgia Southern split the season series, with the Eagles winning, 83-67, on Jan. 4 in Statesboro and the Ragin' Cajuns winning, 72-60, in Lafayette on Feb. 15. The Ragin' Cajuns still hold the edge in the all-time series at 9-3, with all 12 games coming under Garry Brodhead. Louisiana is 6-0 against Georgia Southern in Lafayette.

The winner of Tuesday night's game will face off with the winner of Little Rock and Appalachian State, which will be held in the Cajundome on Tuesday at 3 p.m. Tickets for both contests can be purchased here.
