Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE BASKETBALL -

Arkansas State Univer­sity had five play­ers score at least 13 points, but it wasn’t enough to over­come a Troy team that con­nected on 14 of 27 three-point­ers to win in at First Na­tional Bank Arena in Jones­boro.

Pey­ton Martin posted a game-high 17 points for the Red Wolves (9-13, 4-7 Sun Belt), who had 16 points each from Jireh Wash­ing­ton, Mor­gan Wal­lace and Akasha West­brook. Jada Ford added 13 points.

Wal­lace posted 11 re­bounds to tie a ca­reer-high, and her dou­ble-dou­ble was her third this sea­son. Wash­ing­ton not only fin­ished with a ca­reer-best points to­tal but also tied her ca­reer high for as­sists with six.

ASU con­nected on a sea­son-high 49.2 per­cent of its shots, and its 89 points were its most in reg­u­la­tion this sea­son, but Troy (17-5, 8-3) coun­tered with a 51.9 three-point per­cent­age that was higher than its over­all 43.0 mark from the field. The Tro­jans’ 14 three-point­ers were one shy of ty­ing the arena record held by the Red Wolves.

Troy also had five play­ers score in dou­ble fig­ures, in­clud­ing Kayla Robin­son with a team-high 16 points.
