Appalachian State Mountaineers

The Mountaineers lost to only Northern Illinois, Oregon State, UNC Asheville, Troy and Texas State over their first 24 games of the season. Appalachian State is currently riding a four-game win streak, taking out Toledo, Marshall, Louisiana and Old Dominion during that quartet.

In the Old Dominion matchup on Thursday, the Mountaineers jumped out to a 36-29 lead by halftime. App State didn’t let up in the second on a 46-38 run and took the victory 82-67 in the end. Tops in scoring was Terence Harcum with 22 points and two rebounds in 34 minutes.

Marshall Thundering Herd

Over on the Herd’s side, they managed to scratch out a .500 record at 12-12 over their first 24 games this year. Marshall has come up empty in the last four games, though. Those defeats have come versus Troy, Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina and James Madison in succession.

In the Wednesday matchup versus James Madison, the Thundering Herd took a 39-27 deficit into the second half. Marshall didn’t get any closer on a 45-31 run from there and lost big 84-58. Leading team scorer Nate Martin doubled on 12 points and 16 rebounds, though.


I’ll stick with Appalachian State. The Mountaineers didn’t have many issues versus a struggling Old Dominion team in their last game. App State shot 48.4 percent in that one with a 47-29 rebounding edge, but did have 13 turnovers. Still, the Mountaineers have now scored 73 or more points in four straight (all wins).

In their last meeting with Marshall on February 15, Appalachian State secured a 73-58 home win. The Mountaineers held the Herd to just 32.8 percent shooting in a game with 25 combined turnovers (12 from App State). This one might not be so one-sided, but the Mountaineers should still control things the whole way.
