Turning frustration into wins

Close, but no results

The Mountaineers (8-8, 3-4) started off their stretch of three games within a four-day span with a come-from-behind 70-69 win over Arkansas State at home. App State rallied from a double-digit deficit in the second half and shut down the Red Wolves.

However, after that, the team lost to Georgia State at home and Troy on the road by a combined nine points.

A home game is just what App State needs, and they get one against a weak foe in South Alabama (3-14, 0-8).

Another slow stretch

The back-to-back losses for App State are its first consecutive losses since the team lost three straight games from Nov. 30 to Dec. 14.

After that tough stretch, the team edged North Carolina A&T 72-70 in overtime, which was the beginning of a stretch of three wins in the team’s next four games, which helped keep them on track.

The team is capable of turning things around, but it starts at home before three straight road games.

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
