The Mean Green is 6-4 in SBC play and seeking to reclaim first place in the SBC West from Arkansas State. The UALR Trojans just snapped a four-game losing streak that began with a loss to North Texas on January 9 in Little Rock. The Trojans broke the streak with a blowout win against the Owls of Florida Atlantic last Wednesday in Arkansas.
