ASU women pull away from Furman

by Staff Reports

Appalachian State’s women’s basketball team got 24 points from Anna Freeman and 19 from Maryah Sydnor, and beat Furman 68-58 Monday at the Holmes Center.

Appalachian State (15-6, 9-4 SoCon) broke a close game open in the second half by gradually claiming a 49-37 lead with 12:38 left. The Mountaineers, coming off a loss to Davidson two days earlier, never let the Paladins (10-13, 6-8) closer than seven points the rest of the game.

Freeman made 9-of-15 of her shots from the field and all six of her free throws. She also pulled down 12 rebounds and handed out three assists. Sydnor was 7-of-13 from the field for the Mountaineers, who made just 34.5 percent of their shots in the first half, but shot 50 percent in the second half.

Appalachian State, which scored 25 points off Furman turnovers, held a 42-33 rebounding advantage. Appalachian State also converted 19-of-25 free throws, compared to 7-of-8 for the Paladins.

Furman was limited to 32.2 shooting in the second half and 38.3 for the game. Holli Wilkins scored 12 points for the Paladins, while Brigid Morrissey, Teshia Griswold and Kaitlin Murphy each scored 10 points.

Appalachian State hosts Wofford at 2 p.m. Saturday.
