Seniors carry ASU women past Cougars

by Staff Reports

Appalachian State's three four-year seniors took control of the Mountaineers' 74-65 victory over College of Charleston at the Holmes Center Wednesday night.

The three seniors -- Anna Freeman, Courtney Freeman and Kelsey Sharkey -- combined to score 54 points and grab 36 rebounds. Sharkey and Anna Freeman also blocked all 10 shots credited to the Mountaineers.

Anna Freeman finished with 18 points and grabbed 18 rebounds. She also dished out a team-high five assists and blocked five shots in 35 minutes.

Courtney Freeman led all scorers with 19 points. She also grabbed four rebounds.

Sharkey added 14 points and pulled down 14 rebounds. Seven of her rebounds were on the offensive side of the ball, which helped the Mountaineers score 25 points on offensive rebounds and 44 points in the paint.

The three seniors combined to make 20-of-43 shots from the field, but none of them made a 3-point basket. The Mountaineers (18-6, 12-4 SoCon) shot 41.5 percent from the field in the game, compared to the 29.1 percent shooting produced by College of Charleston (12-14, 8-9).

Cathryn Hardy led the Cougars in scoring with 17 points. She also pulled down nine rebounds. Afreyea Tolbert added 15 points and also pulled down nine boards.

Appalachian State led 37-30 at halftime, and pushed that lead to 43-30 on a Courtney Freeman layup with 18:11 left in the game. Appalachian State would take its largest lead of 17 points four times, the final being 69-62 on an Anna Freeman layup with 2:53 left.

Appalachian State plays its next two games on the road starting Saturday at UNC Greensboro. ASU also plays at Elon on Monday night.
