Western Kentucky vs Arkansas State

Arkansas St. 75, W. Kentucky 61

  •  

JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Ed Townsel scored 25 points, including five 3-pointers, on Saturday night to help Arkansas State cruise to their fourth straight victory, 75-61 over Western Kentucky.

Townsel was 10 of 19 overall, including 5 of 10 from behind the arc. Brandon Peterson added 14 points and Trey Finn had 13 for the Red Wolves (10-5, 4-2 Sun Belt), who improved to 7-1 at home.

Aleksejs Rostov led the Hilltoppers (10-7, 4-2) with 17 points, including five 3-pointers of his own, off the bench. One of Rostov's 3s came with 9 seconds left in the first half and gave Western Kentucky a 27-23 halftime lead. But Arkansas State went on a 13-3 run early in the second half to take the lead for good and was never seriously threatened again.

The Hilltoppers still hold a 29-13 lead in the all-time series between the teams, dating to the 1947-48 season.
