The rust showed particularly at the offensive end where Austin Peay (3-7) shot just 27 percent (17-of-63) for the contest, including only shooting 13 percent (3-of-23) from three-point range. The offensive woes negated an impressive outing under the boards where the Lady Govs grabbed a season-best 18 offensive rebounds but could convert those extra possessions into 13 points.

Arkansas State (3-7) was playing its second game in three days and found its offensive rhythm early en route to shooting an impressive 56.5 percent (29-of-52) from the floor. The Red Wolves scored on four of their final five possessions to close the first half with an 8-0 run and take a 31-20 lead into the break.

The break did not interrupt Arkansas State’s flow as it returned from the break and scored on eight of their first 11 possessions and a 14-5 run that built a 46-25 lead with 14:24 remaining and it did not look back.

Freshman Alexis Hardaway and senior Meghan Bussabarger each had eight points and four rebounds to lead Austin Peay.

Arkansas State’s Jane Morrill led all scorers with 14 points. Hannah Qedan added 12 points and six rebounds.

Austin Peay returns to home – where it has won three straight – to close out the pre-Christmas the portion of its schedule with a 7:00pm, Friday contest against Lipscomb.
