For the Arkansas State Red Wolves in 2016-17, they are looking for a bounce back year after a disappointing showing during the 2015-16 campaign.
After finishing nine games below the .500 mark, the Red Wolves have their top scorer returning in the back court. Despite losing arguably their best player to a graduate transfer to the Texas Tech Red Raiders, the team remains optimistic with the group they have on the floor this season.
Guards Devin Carter and Donte Thomas are back to lead the way. Carter was the leading scorer for the Red Wolves a season ago. With the duo leading the way, things are looking up.
The loss of Anthony Livingston to the Red Raiders will leave a big hole in the lineup, but it gives others plenty of opportunities to step up and take their games to the next level.
