ASU women crush Catamounts

by Staff Reports

CULLOWHEE — Western Carolina proved to be little more than a speed bump for Appalachian State Monday night.

Appalachian State took a 16-point halftime lead and never looked back in a 63-32 victory over the Catamounts in front of 359 fans at the Ramsey Center. Western Carolina (7-18, 5-11) shot a miserable 13 percent (3-of-23) from the field in the first half, and turned the ball over 32 times the entire game.

Appalachian State  (17-6, 11-4 SoCon) got 16 points and five rebounds from Maryah Sydnor. Anna Freeman added 12 points and 10 rebounds, while Courtney Freeman scored 11 points and pulled down seven boards.

Kelsey Sharkey scored eight points and grabbed 12 boards for the Mountaineers.

Western Carolina did not have a player score in double figures. Hana Haden and Kristen Lyon, nether who started the game, each scored six points. Western Carolina’s starting lineup made 3-of-24 shots from the field and scored a grand total of nine points combined.

Appalachian State took a 27-11 lead by halftime despite shooting just 35 percent from the field. The Mountaineers, leading 10-7, went on a 17-1 run to take their 16-point lead.
