“This was fun and I’m still short of breath,” said A-State head coach Mike Balado. “My guys tonight, I love every one of these guys so much. They fought so hard, down 17 on the road, to come back. We had to play through foul trouble, three starters fouled out and the bench came in and gave us a big lift.
“I thought Marquis (Eaton) was giving great effort all night, his shot just wasn’t falling early. He was taking good shots, so it was stay the course. Caleb (Fields) was just so good for us tonight.
