ASU women announce nonconference slate

In Coach Destinee Rogers' first full season, the Arkansas State University women's basketball team will meet two power-conference opponents and four nonconference foes that reached the postseason a year ago.

The Red Wolves open their 2022-23 season on Nov. 10 at Louisiana Tech, then visit Tennessee-Martin four days later before making their home debut on Nov. 16 against Division III Hendrix College.

That begins a four-game homestand highlighted by a visit from Oklahoma. The Sooners edged ASU last year on their home floor in a 101-89 barnburner.

ASU will play just once at First National Bank Arena during the month of December, going to Fayetteville to meet the University of Arkansas on Dec. 11 before trekking to Little Rock a week later for a nonconference matchup with the University of Arkansas-Little Rock on Dec. 18.

The Red Wolves kick off their Sun Belt Conference slate on Dec. 29 at Louisiana-Monroe. ASU plays its first home conference game seven days later when Troy comes to Jonesboro.

Lozada finished in 12th place individually, marking the second-best finish of his career. Julian Perico moved up five spots to finish tied for 19th place after shooting a 4-under 68 to finish at 7-under 209.

ASU women earn home victory

A goal by Phoebe Harpole in the 74th minute gave the Arkansas State University women (2-2-2) a 1-0 victory over Missouri State (2-4-1) on Thursday at the A-State Soccer Park in Jonesboro.

Harpole scored her first career goal when Emma Riley deflected a throw-in by Haley Husted. Goalkeeper Olivia Luther faced 10 shots, with only two on-goal. The Red Wolves took 15 shots, with five coming on-goal.
