App State and ‘Nooga seemed to play a pretty even game last night, shooting-wise.
They put up similar FG numbers – App 26 of 62, UTC 27 of 63.
They put up similar trey stats – App 11 of 34, UTC 14 of 36.
They each made the exact same number of free throws – 17.
The one glaring difference? Free throws missed. App made most all theirs. ‘Nooga missed 19(!). And still won(!!) by just five, 85-80.

Poor guy – “While Kiffin finishes assembling his USC staff, Reaves is stuck in coaching limbo after new Vols coach Dooley chose not to retain him. Reaves said Kiffin’s exit came at “probably the worst timing there could possibly be” for finding a job.” Karma?
The surging Apps take on the defending SoCon tourney champs, who just took out the ‘Whee – “The Mocs are a dangerous foe on their home court, posting a 9-3 mark at the McKenzie Center.” App ain’t scared – “We’re not perfect, but we are playing better together.”
Baseball season is fast approaching. And Baseball America is out with its top 10 prospects for the upcoming season.
Among them, a Mountaineer.
Zach Quate, rhp, Rays Born: Sept. 12, 1987. B-T: R-R. Ht.: 6-1. Wt.: 190. Drafted: Appalachian State, 2009 (14th round). Signed by: Brad Matthews.
In his first pro summer, Quate was one of the biggest surprises from the Rays’ 2009 draft class. Undrafted as a junior at Appalachian State in 2008, he turned heads that summer . . . → Read More: This Ray is Quate good
More SoCon schedules are out. Furple gets to play with South Carolina. ‘Nooga gets Auburn. El Cid heads west to Arizona. Down the mountain, Butch baby will get his W&M on. And we think this is cute.
Pretty cool – “The App State Marching Mountaineers have been invited to perform in the Cabalgata de Reyes Parade Jan. 5, 2011, in Madrid, Spain. Cabalgata de Reyes or “Night of the Kings” is a major celebration in the Spanish calendar, and a parade has occurred in Madrid for nearly 800 years.”
Look what EWash wants – “Welcome to Woodward Field at Eastern Washington University, where I hear that they’re planning to install a new … Oh my Lord, it burns! Is there a certified eyewash station on campus?!” Mercy! An all red field! Still looks better than this.
Stylin’ and profilin’ at Legends Day. Thanks to Appfan James for the sweetest thing we’ve seen since our stocking Christmas morn!
Seems the past couple season App State attracted several QBs. Here’s the latest – “Elijah Adamiak, a three-year starter for the Lions under center, threw for 957 yards and rushed for 688 more this past season, while scoring 15 TDs.” Looks fast. Signing day is next week.
Kinda hard to call a 13-point win a close call, but last night wasn’t good for the nerves.
The Mountaineers never trailed and jumped to an early 18-4 lead. The Bulldogs made just one of their first nine field-goal attempts. The Mountaineers missed just one of their first five and hauled in six offensive rebounds in little more than six minutes on the way to the early lead.
The Bulldogs chipped away again, getting as close as 60-52 on . . . → Read More: Look who's in first place
The comments from yesterday’s post moves us to ask – Just how many great names and people have set foot within Varsity Gymnasium?
We started thinking about this a few months ago when the App alumni office mentioned a photo of The Champ speaking on campus. The. Champ. We had no idea The Greatest had ever been to Boone.
Though it’s not specified, we do believe he’s speaking within Varsity Gym. We could be wrong. Varsity was built in . . . → Read More: Just who has been to Varsity Gym?
