Appalachian State Basketball: Appalachian vs. Wofford 2/11/2012
Appalachian gained somewhat of a surprise victory on Thursday Night down in Greenville, SC. Appalachian defeated the Furman Paladins and gained a season sweep. Appalachian’s next opponent, Wofford had won 6 straight games until now losing three in a row. During the 6 game win streak, Wofford averaged 75 points per game, while in their last three losses, the Terriers have barely averaged 56 points per contest. Appalachian switched up their starting lineup with Jamaal Trice sitting the entire game due to a suspension. I have a feeling this spread will surprise me tomorrow morning, but I am going to guess that the Mountaineers will probably be favored by 1.5 points, but I can also see this game being a PK as well.
After felling behind by as much as 16 against Wofford in the second half, Appalachian rallied but fell up just short to the Terriers by the score of 66-64. Who could have made a better spread? Regardless, I was incorrect for the seventh straight time and fell to 8-12 on the season. I am quickly running out of time to break even this season with only four more games remaning in the regular season.
