FOR STARTERS  

Arkansas State will conclude the exhibition season with a matchup with Arkansas-Monticello Monday night (Nov. 4) at the Convocation Center. A-State is coming off an impressive performance against Harding in its first exhibition game of the season which saw the Red Wolves win by double-digits in a 79-68 victory. It was the 17th exhibition victory in a row for A-State since 2005 and its 14th victory by double-digits during the same time frame.

The Red Wolves return the bulk of its scoring from last year including Preseason All-Sun Belt First Team selection Jane Morrill who led the squad with 14.3 points per contest. Jalen O'Bannon grabbed preseason third team honors after averaging in double-figures during conference play.

Redshirt sophomore Aundrea Gamble made an immediate impact by having one of the most impressive games by a player making her debut in recent memory. The Texas native scored 30 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished out six assists. Her 30 points were the most by an A-State player in an exhibition game since Nene Hurst scored 28 in 2010.

Arkansas-Monticello is making its second trip in The Convo in as many years and former A-State assistant coach Tanya Ray is in her third season as head coach of the Cotton Blossoms.
