2-0 in conference okay at home, 3-1 overall. I’ll take it. This team is fun to watch and they know how to finish. Get out to Trojan arena on the 19th when they are back in town. In the meantime, the ladies will be in town next week on Thursday and Saturday.

They won a dog fight. The coaching staff and the team demonstrated the ability to adjust the game plan based on what was working and what wasn't. It became evident pretty early on that the 3 point shots weren't falling. Though they didn't abandon the 3 pt game, they went more to the inside, relying on put backs, lay ups, and short pull up jumpers. Late in the game, Zay Williams got hot from behind the arc and hit some key 3 pointers, but the team didn't really on those to win the game. In addition to this, it was a great defensive performance as the team held the stAte team to 32.8% from the floor.
Speaking of Zay Williams, he scored his 1000th career point tonight . Congratulations, to him on this milestone.

"Immediately after ASU scored, Nelson Phillips took the ball himself for the second straight game and sprinted down the court to the rim. The Georgia State transfer rose and slammed it home over the Arkansas State defender to seal the victory, 61-53." Troy Athletics Communications
