JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Camron Reedus made two free throws in the final seconds to secure Little Rock’s first road win of the season as the Trojans knocked off Arkansas State 82-78 on Saturday night to halt an eight-game losing skid.

Arkansas State was up 70-66 with 3:39 remaining until Little Rock’s defense closed off the Red Wolves for over three minutes and took a 72-70 lead with 1:56 left following three layups by Ben Marcus, Oliver Black and Reedus. Marcus followed with a jumper and Kris Bankston added two free throws to go ahead 76-70 before Arkansas State’s Ty Cockfield drilled a 3-pointer. He nailed another deep trey with :22 left to close to 78-76 before Black and Reedus finished with four straight free throws.

Reedus had a career-best 22 points, nailing 4 of 8 from distance. Marcus tied his career high with 14 points and Bankson added 10 with seven rebounds for Little Rock (6-21, 3-11 Sun Belt Conference).

Cockfield had 27 points for Arkansas State (9-18, 4-10).
