Catching up with the GoASU memorable games countdown starting on July 4th.
Game 17: Women’s Basketball 77, Chattanooga 52
Darcie’s Army finally made their first appearance in the countdown. Overall, we had this game ranked 12th on the countdown with this SoCon Tourney Semifinal win. The Mountaineers were dominant throughout the game. Freshman Maryah Sydnor dropped 30 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. This truly was a memorable game as good as Chattanooga’s program has been in the past. Bouncing the Mocs from the tourney in this fashion was just about as good as it gets. We have two more Women’s Basketball games ranked in our countdown. This game improves our record to 6/14 in the challenge.
Game 16: Men’s Golf wins Hummingbird Ivitational
In, golf winning a tournament is a big deal and this was the only win on the season for the Mountaineers. However, it came on the heels of the best rounds in program history, shooting an overall team score of 273 in the final round. Casey Komline dropped in ten birdies and an eagle en route to tying a school record low 65 on the second day. Appalachian defeated five SoCon foes in the tournament including Western Carolina, Samford, Elon Wofford and Furman. This was a correct guess on our challenge, and for the third time we were within one spot uf ranking the game correctly. We had this game ranked 17th on our countdown. We are closing in on .500 as we are now batting 7/15 for the challenge.
