JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — Grantham Gillard had a career-high 23 points and Ty Cockfield added 15 as Arkansas State took control late in the first half and rolled to a 90-76 win over Division II Henderson State to halt a four-game losing skid on Saturday night.

Arkansas State (3-6) shot 54 percent (34-63) from the floor while limiting Henderson State to 26-of-58 (45 percent) shooting.

Josh Jones led the Reddies with 16 points and Kaylon Tappin added 14 with Eric Dailey chipping in 11.
