The Troy Trojans butt heads with the Appalachian State Mountaineers in a Sun Belt tilt.

When the Appalachian State Mountaineers had won three of four heading in to Tuesday’s bout with visiting Georgia Southern I thought this was their game to win. In this case I should say lose with the Eagles scoring four points in the final seconds to win 101-100. GSU held a 50.8%-47.6% shooting advantage which added up to two more baskets while the Mountaineers sank four more bombs. Frank Eaves carried Appalachian State with a game high 37 points on 10-23 with Ronshad Shabazz adding 29 points and six pulls on 10-17.Jacob Lawson and Jake Babic combined for 16 points with Babic adding seven boards and six helpers.

USA TODAY Sports

The Troy Trojans have their backs against the wall at 1-8 in the Sun Belt as neither end of the floor has been able to win on their own merits. The Trojans have dropped three in a row capped off by a 66-58 defeat at the hands of visiting South Alabama who erased a six point halftime hole with a 41-20 run over the final 20 minutes. The Trojans sank shots at 43% with USA countering at 41% with the biggest difference being the Jaguars five more makes at the stripe. Wesley Person Jr. led a trio of double digit scorers with 15 points on 5-12 with four threes. Jeremy Hollimon followed with 14 points while Jordon Varnado and John Walton combined for 18 points and 13 rebounds.

The over is 8-2 in Appalachian State last 10 Thursday games and the Mountaineers  are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games. Troy are 7-20-2 ATS in their last 29 home games and  are 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 Thursday games. I think the Mountaineers should win but I also though they would beat Georgia Southern…
