Arkansas State returns to the friendly confines of the Convocation Center Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 7:05 p.m. for a non-conference game against the Skyhawks of UT Martin. This will be the third game in as many years between the Red Wolves and Skyhawks with each team winning at home during that span. UT Martin is 2-1 on the year after picking up wins over Georgia State and Quinnipiac while losing to Gonzaga as part of the Preseason WNIT challenge.
The Red Wolves are coming off a road victory at Austin Peay in which the squad had four players score in double figures for the second straight game. Senior Jane Morrillled the team to come from behind victory, while sophomoreJalen O'Bannon scored 10 points in the second half, whileHanna Qedan and Aundrea Gamble also finished in double-figures to power the A-State offensive attack.
This will be the ninth meeting all-time between A-State and UT Matin. The teams played each other twice a year from 1982-1985 but then took a hiatus and did not renew their series until the 2011-12 season. The Skyhawks have never won a game in the Convocation Center, but do have the only road win in the series, a 79-77 win during the 1983-84 season which was prior to the opening of the Convocation Center.
• Including exhibition games, A-State has scored 79 points in each of its first four games to start the year.
