The Arkansas State women's basketball team extended its winning streak to six straight with a pair of victories over Troy and Florida Atlantic this past week.

The Red Wolves went to Troy and defeated the Trojans 87-74 on Thursday and then returned home for a televised matchup with Florida Atlantic on Saturday.

A-State led for much of the game and defeated the Owls 74-56 for its sixth straight victory.

ASU has now won nine out of its last 11 games after starting the season 0-5. The six game winning streak is the longest since the 2010-11 season when the Red Wolves won straight before losing in the semifinals in the Sun Belt Conference tournament.

A-State is in first place in the SBC West Division by two full games on North Texas.

Sophomore Hanna Qedan recorded her first career double-double with 19 points and 14 points against Troy.

The 14 rebounds were a new career high for Qedan and she missed tying her career high in points by just three.

She also knocked down five 3-pointers in the game, the fifth time this season she has done that.

Jane Morrill backed up Qedan's performance with her third career double-double against Florida Atlantic on Saturday.

The junior forward scored 16 points and 10 rebounds to help ASU to the victory.

Freshman Jalen O'Bannon scored a career high 23 points against Troy in just 19 minutes of action.

She also had nine rebounds, one short of her first career double-double. Entering Saturday's game with Florida Atlantic, ASU ranked second in the nation in 3-point field goal percentage defense, holding opponents to a 23.5 average for the year.
