Statesboro, GA (Sports Network) - Nathan Healy recorded a double-double with 24 points and 11 rebounds for the Appalachian State Mountaineers as they defeated the Georgia Southern Eagles, 91-86, in a Southern Conference overtime thriller at the Hanner Fieldhouse.

Healy was 7-of-12 from the field and a perfect 8-of-8 from the free-throw line while earning two blocks and two steals on the defensive end of the ball for ASU (10-12, 6-5 SoCon), which has won two in a row. Four other Mountaineers reached double-figures in the scoring column including Tab Hamilton (16 points), Jay Canty (15 points, eight rebounds), and Tevin Baskin (12 points). The Eagles have lost two of their last three games.

Reed tallied 19 but shot 7-of-20. Marvin Baynham managed 11 points and eight rebounds before fouling out in the final seconds of the game.

The Mountaineers trailed 37-27 at halftime after shooting just 40.7 percent from the field and going 0-of-6 from beyond the arc.

In the second half, ASU caught fire, shooting 57.7 percent from the floor and outscoring Eagles, 46-36. After going up by as much as seven points with 2:40 to go, the Mountaineers allowed Georgia Southern to battle back and tie the game with a free-throw by Baynham with three seconds left.
