    JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) -- Adrian Banks' 27 points accounted for more than a third of Arkansas State's scoring Thursday night as the Indians overwhelmed cross-state rival Arkansas-Little Rock 77-51 in a Sun Belt Conference contest.

    Banks was flawless at the free-throw line, hitting 8-of-8, and made 50 percent of his field goals, both from close in and long distance, going 3-6 from 3-point range and making 5-of-10 of his other shots. Eighteen of his points were scored in the second half.

    ASU opened the game with a 27-8 run and went 7-of-11 from 3-point range in the first half to take a 46-25 lead into the intermission.

    Accuracy accounted for much of the difference between the two teams' scoring, with UALR (8-10, 3-4 SBC) making only 26 percent of its shots from the field, while the Indians (9-9, 4-2) hit 47 percent. The Trojans made only one field goal in the first 9:27 of the second half.

    ASU led by as much as 32 points, 62-30, in the second period.

    The only other ASU player who scored in double digits was Wedel Ryan, with 16 points.

    Terrance Akins topped the Trojans' offense with 14 points, while Rashad Jones-Jennings and De'Andre Eggins had 10 each.
