JONESBORO, Ark. -- Trey Finn scored 17 points and Arkansas State held Louisiana-Monroe to a season low in scoring during a 63-39 victory Saturday night.
Louisiana-Monroe (3-12, 2-7) got 11 points from Jayon James and 10 from Millaun Brown. The Warhawks struggled in all aspects of their shooting, making only 2 of 9 free throws and 1 of 10 3-pointers while hitting 37 percent of their shots from the floor.
