Yes, the Red Wolves return nearly everyone, with t walk-on freshman Nicholas Tingling and transfer junior Desi Sills as the only newcomers. But is Sills really the “big-time Sun Belt weapon” CBS projects the 6’2″ guard to be?
On the latest Fun Belt Podcast, I play some one-on-one with Arkansas State head basketball coach Mike Balado to discuss the upcoming Sun Belt season and the positive energy pulsating from the team.
Bottomline: Balado now has a team with as much talent as anyone in the Sun Belt. He has perimeter shooting, rebounds, big game experience and leadership on the floor. He doesn’t have a “back to the basket” big, but he’s not that concerned. In fact, I haven’t seen him this stoked for some time.
