Appalachian State Basketball: Appalachian @ Georgia Southern 2/4/2012
The Lady Mountaineers travel to Georgia Southern that should favor the Apps on paper in all aspects of the game. The Eagles are 3-9 in conference play, good for tie for eight place while the Mountaineers remain in the top spot in the league with 10-1 record. In the past, the Mountaineers have had trouble winning in Statesboro. Last season, the game was moved up two hours early in anticipation of some inclement weather. The Mountaineers were driving the day of the game, so their schedule was rushed getting off the bus to play. This season, the Georgia Southern game is part of a long road trip that includes a game on Monday at College of Charlseton. Once the Mountaineers get home sometime early Tuesday morning, they will have travelled just shy of 800 miles and played two basketball games in four days.
