Quoting Coach Cameron Newbauer

On Arkansas State

“They are a very athletic team; very defensive-minded, where they want to get up in the passing lane and pressure the ball. They really make you work for everything. We have to be prepared to play together, play strong. From an offensive standpoint for them, they are very aggressive. They averaged 19 free throws a game last year and have a number of players who are dangerous in the open floor.

“A lot of things that they do well, we’re not great at defending right now so it will be a great test for us for sure.”
