HOT SPRINGS, Ark. -- Solomon Bozeman scored 25 points and Arkansas-Little Rock advanced the Sun Belt tournament championship game with a 65-56 win over Middle Tennessee on Monday night.

The Trojans (18-16) have never won the tournament and are making their first appearance in the title game since 1996. They will face defending tournament champion North Texas on Tuesday with a berth to the NCAA tournament on the line.

The Blue Raiders (16-16) shot just 35.9 percent (14 of 39) and were led by JT Sulton, who had 21 points and 11 rebounds.

Arkansas-Little Rock led 43-42 in the second half before going a 8-1 run to go up 51-43. Bozeman, the Sun Belt player of the year, scored the final four points of the run on free throws. He finished 19 of 22 at the line.
