App State Men's Basketball Head coach Dustin Kerns led his team to victory for the 100th time in an 82-75 win over Texas State on Thursday.
All nine Mountaineers who entered the game scored four or more, including Tyree Boykin, who went 10-10 from the free throw line during the last two minutes of the contest to stamp the win. Four App State players scored in double figures, led by Donovan Gregory with 21.
The Black & Gold shot 55.1% from the field, which was their best shooting performance against a Sun Belt team since Feb. 1, 2020, when App State posted 86 points against Little Rock at a 72.7% clip.
The Mountaineers scored 49 second-half points, their highest half-total in league play since Jan. 16, 2021, when they topped South Alabama, 83-77.
App State will play its final regular season home game on Saturday February 18 at 4 p.m. against Old Dominion. The Mountaineers defeated the Monarchs, 72-58, on Jan. 21 during Terence Harcum's best-scoring night of his career.
