Staying the course

Protecting home court

Two of App State’s next three games are in Boone and for the Mountaineers, that is a great advantage. The team is 5-1 at home and starts the next slate of games by hosting Arkansas State, who rolled over App State 89-75 on the road on Jan. 3.

The Red Wolves (10-5), are currently second in the Sun Belt, so App State will have a chance to see how they measure up against a quality team in the place they have played their best this season.

Midseason success

App State fell to UALR on the road, but has won two of its last three games. After a tough game against Arkansas State, the Mountaineers match up against Georgia State and Troy, who are a combined 15-12 on the season.

If head coach Angel Elderkin and her team are to continue their solid play, they will have to take care of business at home, and will get looks against two new Sun Belt foes for the first time this season, but with theirrecord at 7-6, the time to string together wins is now.
