After this loss the Eagles fall to 2-15 in the conference while sitting on a seven game losing slump.

The Georgia Southern Eagles fell to the Arkansas State Red Wolves in the conference game which took place in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

Although the Red Wolves came out on top, putting their record at 11-16 and the Eagles fell down to 7-21, GS achieved much.

GS tied the single-game three point record by making 13-16 against ASU. Each of those baskets was assisted by junior guard Amira Amtwater. She achieved a school record, making 14 assists in a single-game.

Junior guard Alexis Brown showed star athleticism in the game, scoring 29 points and playing in the game for a total of 34 minutes.

Going into halftime the Red Wolves only led by four points and there was real potential for the Eagles to come back and fight for the win.

There were many shots that were missed by the eagles from rebounds and on. Missed opportunities really played a factor into the loss.

Although this loss did not help the Eagles improve their record any, they are set to take on a new opponent to hopefully still end the season on a high note.

GS will be on the road to finish off the 2018-19 season by competing against the Georgia State Panthers in Atlanta, Georgia on March 9 at 2 p.m.
