App State women hold off UNCG

by Staff Reports

Maryah Sydnor scored 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds in Appalachian State's 76-67 victory over UNC Greensboro in front of 722 fans at the Holmes Center Saturday.

The Mountaineers claimed a 37-28 lead by halftime. App State went on a 16-2 run to take an 18-10 lead and never trailed the rest of the first half.

That can't be said about the Mountaineers in the second half. UNCG (6-18, 2-11) rallied and took a 55-54 lead with 8:15 left in the game.

The Mountaineers answered with a 15-6 run to take a 70-60 lead they would not lose.

Sydnor had some help from Farrahn Wood, who made three 3-pointers and finished with nine points.

KeKe Cooper and Amber Doniere both scored 10 points. Sydnor and Cooper each grabbed eight rebounds, while Doniere had seven.

It was enough to counter UNCG's Janae Stevenson, who scored 21 points on 10-of-13 shooting. She also pulled down a game-high 13 rebounds.

Shanese Harris and Jade Scaife each scored 10 points.

Appalachian State broke a two-game losing streak, having lost to Chattanooga and Samford in successive games. The Mountaineers host their final game of the season at 6 p.m. Monday.

They play their final three regular season games on the road at Georgia Southern, at Davidson and at Western Carolina.
