JONESBORO, Ark. (AStateRedWolves.com) – The Arkansas State University men's basketball team made its 2012-13 home debut a successful one as four Red Wolves scored in double figures to register a 76-47 victory over Arkansas at Monticello this Tuesday (Nov. 13) night at the ASU Convocation Center.
The non-conference win evens A-State's record to 1-1 overall on the season while the contest counted as an exhibition for Arkansas-Monticello. As a NCAA Division II member, UAM is allowed up to three exhibitions per season versus NCAA Division I competition. With the home triumph, ASU is now 13-3 in its last 16 home openers to date.
"What I'm trying to do is get our team to play consistently for forty minutes," said ASU head coach John Brady. "We need to be consistent in more phases of the game. It's not so much about tonight's game, but more of what lies ahead and what's coming. If we are going to be the type of team we want to be then I have to develop a sense of urgency with this team, where every possession is meaningful.
"We need to get better and the score of this game is insignificant to what we are trying to do. The score has nothing to do with it and it's about how we play and what we need to do to get better, " added Brady.
