Appalachian State Mountaineers 

Appalachian State posted a 12-10 record over their first 22 games of the year. The Mountaineers would then hit a 3-4 stretch over the next seven. The losses in that time came versus Marshall, James Madison, South Alabama and Old Dominion. 

In the Georgia State game on Wednesday, Appalachian State stormed out to a 42-25 edge by the break. The Mountaineers had a 36-27 advantage in the second for a 78-52 win. Chris Mantis was the high man with 22 points and two rebounds. 

Georgia Southern Eagles 

Over on the Georgia Southern side, their season started off on a 12-10 run as well. The Eagles went just 2-5 over the next seven games however, falling to Louisiana, Old Dominion, Arkansas State, Marshall and Southern Miss in that time. 

Matched up against Coastal Carolina on Wednesday, the Eagles managed a 38-33 halftime lead. Georgia Southern posted a 38-35 second-half run for a 76-68 victory. Kamari Brown led the way on 14 points with five rebounds. 


I’m going to stick with Georgia Southern. You could easily make a case either way, though. The Eagles have been playing well at home lately; they’re 4-0 in their last four at Hanner Fieldhouse. These teams last met back on January 12 at Holmes Center. That one was a competitive matchup, and Georgia Southern ended up eking out a 67-65 road win. Appalachian State has hit 78 or more points in two of their last three games, so this one could end up being a relatively high-scoring affair if both teams are on. Should be a fun matchup.
