Arkansas State vs Denver

Denver 66, Arkansas St. 52


DENVER (AP) - Chris Udofia matched a career high with 21 points to lead Denver past Arkansas State 66-52 Thursday night.

It was the third time Udofia has reached 21 in his career. Brian Stafford added 15 points for Denver (16-5, 6-2 Sun Belt), which has won five of its last seven games and is off to its best NCAA Division I start.

The Pioneers made 11 of 23 3-point tries, with Udofia and Brett Olson making three apiece. They completed a sweep of the Red Wolves despite the absence of center Rob Lewis, out with a sore left hip.

Malcolm Kirkland had 19 points to lead Arkansas State (9-13, 3-5). Marcus Hooten scored eight points for the Red Wolves, losers of four of their last five.

Arkansas State is 2-8 on the road, where it plays four of its next five games.
