Arkansas State 82, Prairie View 69

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Isaac Wells had 16 points and 13 rebounds
to lead five Arkansas State players in double figures as the
Indians beat Prairie View 82-69 at the Colonial Classic.

Dereke Tipler added 16 points and 12 assists while Marcus
Ardison had 16 points and five rebounds for Arkansas State (3-4),
which won two of its three games at the round-robin tournament
hosted by Louisville.

Jeremy Wiley led the Panthers (1-5) with 14 points and 10
assists and Chris Gaines added 16 points, but Prairie View couldn't
sustain an early 10-point lead while dropping its fifth straight.

The Indians led 37-35 at the half, then opened the second half
with an 11-0 run punctuated by an acrobatic alley-oop from Tipler
to Wells.

The lead increased to as much as 19 as the Panthers allowed
Arkansas State to shoot 60 percent from the field in the second
half.
