Eggleston helps Arkansas State hold off Georgia State 90-87

By The Associated Press

JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — Melo Eggleston hit two free throws with 10 seconds left, then dunked as time expired to allow Arkansas State hold off Georgia State, 90-87 on Monday night.

J.J. Matthews had 18 points to lead five Arkansas State players in double figures. Eggleston added 16 points for the Red Wolves while Caleb Fields, Marquis Eaton and Jerry Johnson each chipped in 11.

Matthews shot 8 for 10 from the line and grabbed seven rebounds. Eggleston also had 10 rebounds for the Red Wolves while Fields posted eight assists.

The 90 points marks a season best for Arkansas State (11-5, 3-2 Sun Belt Conference).

The Red Wolves were in trouble after the first half, heading to the locker room at halftime trailing 52-41. But the home team mounted a second-half rally to get back in it and ultimately earn the narrow 3-point victory. The Panthers' 52 points in the first half were a season high.

Damon Wilson had 19 points and eight rebounds for the Panthers (10-6, 3-2). Nelson Phillips added 16 points. Kavonte Ivery had 13 points.

Arkansas State faces South Alabama on the road on Thursday. Georgia State takes on Louisiana-Lafayette at home on Thursday.
