JONESBORO — While Mike Balado wants to win next week’s exhibition games in the Dominican Republic, he wants to experiment quite a bit, too.

Arkansas State is getting an early start on preparations for the 2022-23 men’s basketball season, Balado’s sixth as head coach, with its first trip out of the country since the 2013-14 team traveled to Canada. The Red Wolves will play three games during a nine-day trip to the Dominican Republic.
