App Men look to sweep Bobcats

March 5, 2015 No Comments by Charles

It has been a long season for the Mountaineers in Jim Fox’s first season as head coach. Wins have been scarce, sometimes coming in streaks, and that is exactly how Appalachian hopes to finish the season. Prior to last Saturday’s win over first place UL-Monroe, Appalachian had not won a game in three weeks, dating […]

February 12, 2015 No Comments by Charles

1:12 PM: @bigCasu: App is a slight favorite tonight by a point. ML gives a better layout to UALR. Wouldn’t be shocked if it moved a half point to lose the push 6:59 PM: @bigCasu: UALR is awful on the road. So I am gonna grab this one point for the Apps. Would be bigger […]

Apps visit Lafayette

February 5, 2015 No Comments by Charles

3:27 PM: @bigCasu: Apps hanging in close as an 11.5 point dog. No much movement. This might be one I struggle with until right before tipoff. 7:11 PM: @bigCasu: Another .5 point comes off the App spread to 11. 7:57 PM: @bigCasu: Louisiana has covered one double digit spread this year, which was a home […]

UNC-Greensboro @ Men’s Basketball

January 9, 2014 No Comments by Charles

7:15 AM: First look at tonight’s spread between App and UNCG, favored the Mountaineers by 3, which is now moved to 4. As of now, would consider App at 3, and hesitate at 4. Generally this wouldn’t be a game where you would make your play moments before tipoff. 10:26 PM: The spread never moved […]

Men’s Basketball @ Georgia

November 29, 2013 No Comments by Charles

7:08am: #AppStateMBB is getting 12 points today down in Athens with no word on the status of Mike Neal. At least none that we have seen. Georgia has four players scoring in double figures this season and their only win was over Wofford, while losing to Davidson. 7:16am: I think this line could move a […]

Appalachian opens tournament against Furman

The fact is, there is not a huge gap between the bottom teams of this conference and the lower middle teams. Samford, who Furman beat on Friday, prefers a slower pace of basketball, which induces a game […]
