Caleb Henry led ASU Mid-South with 14 points and hit 4-of-5 beyond the arc before leaving the game late in the second half with an injury. Jalen Lynn and Christian White both scored 12 points, and White led the team with 6 rebounds. Zach Byrd scored 8 points to go with 5 assists, and Shaheed Halk dished out a team-high 7 assists and took 3 steals to go with 4 points.
