UT Arlington finished the season 29-20, the most victories since winning 30 in 2011.
The opening-round game with Troy is slated to start at 12:30 p.m. The winner will advance to the double-loss elimination portion of the tournament to take on Texas State at 5:30 p.m.
Up next the Mavs head to South Alabama for the Sun Belt Championships beginning Wednesday, May 11.
The Mavericks close the regular season with a three-game series against Texas State that begins Friday.
The Mavericks lead the all-time series with the Trojans 4-3, but are looking to avenge a two-game sweep by Troy in a weather-shortened series last season.
