Dating back to the 2010-11 season, A-State was 1-32 when shooting less than 35 percent from the floor, but the Red Wolves won two-straight games having shot below 35 percent (vs FAU and Missouri State).

The Red Wolves have 50 blocks thus far and are on pace for 134, second-most in program history.
