ASU men edge Dominican Republic

Arkansas State University returned to the Gran Arena del Cibao in Santiago, Dominican Republic, for the second time in as many days but came away with a better result, topping an all-star team from Santiago's professional league, 87-86.

Julian Lual's free throw with 2.4 seconds remaining provided the difference, as the junior college transfer finished with 14 points and four rebounds. Malcolm Farrington led the Red Wolves with 19 points -- including five three-pointers -- and Markise Davis added 18 points along with 12 rebounds.

"It's a different game over here, very physical, but we were able to adjust to it a little better," ASU Coach Mike Balado said in a postgame video.
