Ed Townsel Makes 3 Shots - 2 Huge - For Arkansas State

Ed Townsel had an odd day for Arkansas State. Normally the junior is the focal point of the offense for the Red Wolves.

Saturday he was only the focus for the final two minutes, the most important ones for Arkansas State in a 73-70 win over St. Bonaventure.

We are talking about a kid that takes almost 30 percent of his team's shot when he is on the floor. Saturday he shot only eight times, six from behind the arc.

Three went in, two in the last two minutes, and it saved the Red Wolves from what could have been a debilitating defeat. They had a 17-point lead at one point. It was gone by the time that the second Townsel three went in with two minutes remaining.

That put the game even at 68. After St. Bonaventure went ahead again, Raeford Worsham stole the ball and tied the game again.

After a series of timeouts, and a missed 3-pointer by Chris Johnson, Townsel pulled down the ball.

Seven seconds later, the game was over on Townsel's third three of the game.

It wasn't the typical game for the junior, but it might have been more important than any of his best to this point.
