The Appalachian State Mountaineers take the floor at the UALR Trojans in Saturday college basketball.

The Appalachian State remained winless in the Sun Belt following an 80-79 OT defeat to Arkansas State on Thursday night.

Appalachian State appears to be in command with a nine point lead at the break but were outshot 44.3%-41.4% and allowed 12 more Red Wolves looks.

Just Forrest gave the Mountaineers 24 points with Ronshad Shabazz contributing 22 points and posting six rebounds.

Appalachian State received 13 points and five boards from Tyrell Johnson with Bennett Holley adding eight points and nine rebounds.

The Arkansas-Little Rock Trojans have followed a two game winning streak with three consecutive defeats after a 72-71 loss to visiting Coastal Carolina Thursday.

A Chanticleers free throw with two seconds left was the winning margin after UALR had closed a DD deficit with a 12-0 spurt.

Rayjon Tucker was the Trojans main weapon leading all scorers with 29 points with Deondre Burns adding eleven points and four pulls.

Kris Bankston and Markquis Nowell gave UALR ten points apiece with Bankston grabbing seven boards followed by Jaizec Lottie with nine points and five assists.

Over is 4-0 in Appalachian State Mountaineers last 4 road games and over is 5-1 in Appalachian State  Mountaineers last 6 overall. UALR Trojans are 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 home games and  are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall and  are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall and UALR are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. Sun Belt. Home team is 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings and Appalachian State Mountaineers are 2-7-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

This is not for the feint of heart with neither team winning or covering very often…

Pick:
UALR -2.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
