NCAA Game Summary - Samford at Appalachian State



(Thursday, February 28)

Final Score: Appalachian State 70, Samford 67 (2OT)

Boone, NC (Sports Network) - Jamaal Trice led the way with 18 points as the Appalachian State Mountaineers outlasted the Samford Bulldogs in double overtime, 70-67, in a Southern Conference showdown at the Holmes Center.

For the Mountaineers (13-15, 9-8 SoCon), Tevin Baskin added 10 points, as APSU pulled into a tie with Samford for second place in the conference's North Division. With a win Saturday in their regular-season finale against Chattanooga, the Bulldogs will clinch second place and a first-round bye in the conference tournament.

Tyler Hood led all scorers with 22 points for the Bulldogs (11-19, 9-8), while Tim Williams finished with 12 points and Connor Miller chipped in with 11.

APSU took a 33-29 lead into the break by shooting 48.1 percent from the field in the first half. Samford made 44.8 percent of its field goals before the break.

After intermission the Bulldogs got hot, connecting on 57.1 percent of their field goal tries, but just 1-of-4 from 3-point range. The Mountaineers fell to 40.9 percent shooting from the field and 3-of-8 from beyond the 3-point arc.

After trailing by eight, 59-51, with just over four minutes to play, the Mountaineers scored eight unanswered points down the stretch to force overtime. Jay Canty of APSU made one of two free throws with 31 seconds remaining to tie the score at 59-59, and a 3-pointer by the Mountaineers' Clide Geffrard, Jr. was blocked by Baskin in the final moments of regulation.

In the first extra session both squads struggled, with each scoring just two points. Canty had a chance to win it at the buzzer, but his potential game- winning layup was off the mark.

In the second overtime Trice opened the scoring with a 3-pointer and the Mountaineers remained in front the rest of the way, as they held on to win in what was the school's fifth overtime contest of the campaign, a new single- season record.

Samford outscored APSU in the paint, 40-30. The Mountaineers had the edge in free-throw scoring, 14-7.
