The Arkansas State Red Wolves and the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions meet in college hoops action from H.O. Clemmons Arena on Wednesday night.

The Arkansas State Red Wolves will look to build on a 95-82 win over Central Arkansas last time out. Desi Sills leads the Red Wolves in scoring with 14.6 PPG while Norchad Omier has 13 PPG with a team-high 9.1 RPG to lead the Red Wolves on the glass and to make up the other half of the pair of double-digit scorers for Arkansas State up to this point in the season. Caleb Field has 9.7 PPG with 3.7 RPG and a team-high 5.3 APG and Marquis Eaton has 9.6 PPG with 3.6 APG as well for the Red Wolves this season. As a team, Arkansas State is averaging 72.6 PPG on 45.4% shooting from the field, 36.5% from three and 77.1% from the foul line while allowing 68.9 PPG on 42.1% shooting from the field and 26.8% from three this season.

The Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions will be out to rebound from a 99-54 loss to Baylor last time out. Shawn Williams leads UAPB in scoring and assists with 15.4 PPG and 3.8 APG while Trey Sampson has 12.4 PPG with 5 RPG. Kylen Milton has 12.3 PPG with 3.1 RPG to make up the trio of double-digit scorers for the Golden Lions so far this season. Brandon Brown has 9.5 PPG with a team-high 8.2 RPG for the Golden Lions on the glass so far this season. As a team, Arkansas-Pine Bluff is averaging 62.4 PPG on 37.9% shooting from the field, 27.5% from three and 77.9% from the foul line while allowing 84.1 PPG on 51.6% shooting from the field and 39.1% from three this season.

Arkansas State is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the under is 9-3 in their last 12 games overall. Arkansas-Pine Bluff is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.

It’ll be interesting to see how this one shakes out as UAPB has had mixed success against the number this season while Arkansas State has failed to cover their lone game as a double-digit favorite so far this season. Still, I’ll lean the way of Arkansas State as I just don’t think UAPB has what it takes to hang with the Red Wolves offensively here. Give me A-State here.
