Recap: Appalachian St vs. UNC Greensboro

Boone, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Kyle Cain logged a double-double with 12 points and 14 rebounds, as the UNC Greensboro Spartans defeated the Appalachian State Mountaineers, 66-60, in a Southern Conference matchup at Holmes Convocation Center.

Cain went 6-of-11 from the field for the Spartans (9-9, 2-1 SoCon), who have won three of their last five contests. Tevon Saddler and Nicholas Paulos each added 13 points for the visitors.

Jay Canty scored 15 points to lead the Mountaineers (4-11, 0-2), who lost their third straight and first game at home this season. Tevin Baskin and Tab Hamilton both tallied 13 points.

The Spartans shot 46.2 percent from the field in the opening half, with the Mountaineers at just 30 percent. Appalachian State made up for the shortcoming with 8-of-9 at the free-throw line, good for a 30-29 lead at the half.
