Recap: Appalachian St vs. Ga Southern

Boone, NC (Sports Network) - Nathan Healy tallied a double-double with 17 points and 13 rebounds as the Appalachian State Mountaineers outlasted the Georgia Southern Eagles, 64-62, in a Southern Conference tilt at the Holmes Center.

Michael Obacha also recorded a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds for Appalachian State (8-10, 2-5 SoCon), which had lost its previous two games. Chris Burgess added 12 points for the home team, while Tab Hamilton netted 10 points.

For Georgia Southern (8-12, 2-5), C.J. Reed had 16 points, nine rebounds, and five assists, while Eric Ferguson and Cleon Roberts had 10 points apiece.

Appalachian State outshot Georgia Southern from the field in the first half, 44.8 percent to 36.9 percent, as it took a 33-20 advantage into intermission.

The Mountaineers extended their lead to 17 with 8:44 to play in second half before the Eagles made their improbable comeback, ripping off a 22-5 run to tie the game with nine seconds remaining on a Reed 3-pointer. A Burgess 3- point attempt in the waning second did not fall for ASU and the game went to overtime.

In the extra session, the Eagles took a 62-61 lead with under 30 seconds to play on a pair of Reed free throws, but Burgess capped the contest with the game-winning trey on the other end to lift the Mountaineers to the win.

ASU shot just 6-of-18 from 3-point range, but Georgia Southern was an even worse 3-of-18 from beyond the arc.
