Jags Fall To Arkansas State
Arkansas State, already up 10-2 early in the game, used a 20-2 run which included 18 unanswered points to comfortably defeat the Jaguars on Thursday night 85-61.
This is the Jaguars worst home loss since the 2008-09 season.
The Jags fall for the sixth consecutive game, running their record to 7-17 overall and 1-10 in Conference play while Arkansas State improves to 14-8 overall and 7-4 in Conference play.
The Jags are in last place in the Sun Belt Conference standings. Only the top eight will play in the Conference tournament in New Orleans. Currently Texas State holds the eighth and final spot with a 3-7 conference record with Troy a half-game behind at 3-8.
With seven games remaining on the Jaguars schedule, they still have a shot to make the conference tournament, but they have to turn around their season fast.
They have Texas State twice, Troy once, Western Kentucky, ULM, ULL and Texas-Arlington remaining on the schedule.
The Jags will travel to Bowling Green, Kentucky on Saturday to face the Hilltoppers. The game is scheduled to be aired on ESPN3 as well as WNSP.
