    HARRISONBURG, Va. (1/4/24) – In their first road game since December 2, Arkansas State women’s basketball (7-5, 1-1 SBC) dropped a hard-fought contest to James Madison (10-4, 2-0 SBC) by a score of 64-57 on Thursday night at Atlantic Union Bank Center.

    Izzy Higginbottom led both sides in scoring for the second-consecutive game with 18 points while Anna Griffin (14 points) and Lauryn Pendleton (10 points) rounded out the trio of double-digit scorers for the Red Wolves. As a team, A-State finished the game shooting 19-for-55 (35 percent) from the field and 3-for-17 (18 percent) from 3-point range.

    The first half was a back-and-forth affair, with Arkansas State claiming a 19-15 lead to end the first quarter. However, the Dukes responded in the next period by outscoring the Red Wolves 16-9 on 40 percent (6-for-15) shooting.

    Despite trailing 31-30 at halftime, A-State shot 44 percent (14-for-32) from the field during the first half while holding James Madison to 36 percent (12-for-33). JMU out-rebounded the Scarlet and Black 25-16 after a half of play, including 10-4 on the offensive glass.

    Higginbottom and Griffin powered A-State on a 13-2 run to open the second half, which claimed the first double-digit lead of the ballgame (43-33). The Dukes responded with an 18-4 run that erased the lead and put them ahead 51-47 going into the fourth.

    The Red Wolves fell behind by eight points during the fourth but brought the deficit down to four with 1:17 left. A late layup from Kseniia Kozlova plus a free throw from Jamia Hazell put the game out of reach as JMU claimed a seven-point victory.

    JMU finished the game with 23 offensive rebounds and 55 overall, which is the most by any opponent this season.
