SAN MARCOS, Texas -- Cameron Golden scored 20 points to lead Arkansas State over Texas State 74-69 on Saturday night.
Ed Townsel scored 12 points, Kirk Van Slyke 11 and Kendrick Washington and Brandon Reed 10 apiece for the Red Wolves (9-4, 2-0 Sun Belt), who won their fourth consecutive game. Arkansas State shot 53.3 percent, including 14 of 22 3-point attempts for 63.6 percent.
All of Koenen's points came in the second half when Texas State rallied from a six-point halftime deficit. He tied the game at 63 with 3:33 left but Golden then scored seven of the Red Wolves' final 11 points, including two free throws with 11 seconds left for a 72-67 lead. TSU's Naiel Smith scored with 6 seconds left but two Townsel free throws sealed the outcome.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
