Arkansas State beats Calgary 96-76, powered by another great 3-point shooting night. The offense was again outstanding with 17 assists and 11/22 shooting from 3. This is a very good sign for what looks to be the best Red Wolves team in decades.
Van Slyke and Gardner led the way with 16 apiece. Washington and Melvin Johnson were also in double digits with 14 and 12 points respectively. Rakeem Dickerson had 5 assists for the 2nd game in a row, and the Red Wolves were lights out from the free throw line, shooting 23 of 27 for 85.2%.
Sean Gardner was 4/5 from three, trailed by Melvin Johnson who was 2/3 from downtown.
The Red Wolves have a rematch with Alberta tomorrow.
