TROY, Ala. – Behind a career-high 29 points from Frank Eaves(Page HS), Appalachian State University men’s basketball picked up its second-straight Sun Belt Conference win, a 69-64 victory at Troy on Monday night at Trojan Arena.

The Mountaineers (6-10, 3-4 Sun Belt) raced out to an early double-digit lead, but a scoring drought late in the first half allowed the Trojans (7-9, 2-5) to regain the advantage before Appalachian battle its way back for the victory.

Appalachian State opened the contest on fire, hitting 4-of-6 three pointers in the first five minutes of action to open up a 12-4 lead. Jacob Lawson’s(Northern Guilford HS/ORMA) dunk with 14:53 on the clock gave the Apps their biggest lead of the game (14-4).
