Current Records: Morehead State 2-3; Arkansas State 3-1

What to Know

The Arkansas State Red Wolves will look to defend their home court on Friday against the Morehead State Eagles at 8 p.m. ET. Arkansas State is expected to win -- but not by much -- so they will need to come into the contest prepared for a fight.

The Red Wolves didn't have too much trouble with the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks on the road last Friday as they won 72-60.

Meanwhile, Morehead State found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 66-46 punch to the gut against the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Sunday. The Eagles were surely aware of their 14.5-point disadvantage in the point spread, but the foreknowledge did nothing to prevent the result. Guard Skyelar Potter had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 33 minutes but putting up just eight points on 2-for-10 shooting.

Arkansas State's win brought them up to 3-1 while Morehead State's defeat pulled them down to 2-3. Arkansas State is 1-1 after wins this year, and Morehead State is 1-1 after losses.
