Back on track?

The Mountaineers edged Arkansas State 74-73 on Jan. 3 on the road. Freshman forward Milos Kostic made the go-ahead basket in the game’s final 15 seconds to lift App State to the win and snap what was then a three-game losing skid.

Since the win, the Mountaineers are in the midst of another three-game losing streak as they get set to host the Red Wolves at Holmes Convocation Center Thursday.  In dramatic fashion, App State snapped a losing streak of the same length against this same squad on the road, so the Mountaineers should be confident.

First looks

Following their home matchup with Arkansas State, the Mountaineers get their first look of the season at Sun Belt foes Georgia State and Troy at home and on the road, respectively.

The two opponents are a combined 16-13 so far this season, and the Mountaineers are looking to continue clawing up in the Sun Belt standings. At this point in the season, conference play is especially important for the young team.
