From the Sun Belt Conference
Arkansas State earned its first home victory over the season with a 58-51 victory over Central Arkansas on Dec. 8 at the Convocation Center.
The Red Wolves have now won two out of their last three games and improved their record to 2-6 on the year. The Red Wolves will travel to Missouri State on Saturday to renew a series with the Lady Bears.
ASU leads the all-time series 5-2 with the last meeting between the two schools coming in the 2011-12 season when the Lady Bears earned just their victory all-time in the series with a 77-68 win in Jonesboro.
Sophomore Jasmine Hunt has enjoyed back-to-back career nights on the courts in her last two games. She scored a career-high eight points at FAU on Dec. 1 and then hit the mark again on Dec. 8 at home against Central Arkansas.
Hunt was efficient in the first half against the Sugar Bears' going 3-of-5 from the field and scoring eight points in just six minutes of action.
A-Stat e has continued to get impressive performances out of its bench this season.
In all eight of the Red Wolves' games this season, the bench has scored at least 10 points and has only been outscored twice this season.
A big reason for ASU's success off the bench has been junior Carlisha Wyatt, who is third on the team in scoring with 8.3 points per game.
Wyatt scored all 10 points; all in the second half, against UCA to help A-State earn the seven point win over the Sugar Bears' this past Saturday.
Senior Q McDowell is one steal away from moving into a tie for 13th place on ASU's all-time career steals list. McDowell has registered 10 steals on the year to give 152 over her four-year career.
