East Carolina Pirates

The East Carolina Pirates won their first game but fell on their second. In their win against VMI Keydets, Jayden Gardner put on a strong outing with 28 points, 11 rebounds, two steals and two blocks. It was Tristen Newton that gave the roundhouse punch with a 20-point night while hitting three three-pointers that evening. In that win, the Pirates dominated the paint with Gardner leading the charge. Now against the Mountaineers, they would need him to be a force in the paint. He is expected to bring his game but Newton and Suggs need to be productive along with JJ Miles and Seth LeDay. In order for East Carolina to have a chance and take this game, Gardner’s supporting cast needs to produce.

Players to Watch: J. Gardner (21.5 PPG, 9.5 RPG, 2.5 APG, 1.5 SPG, 1 BPG), T. Newton (12 PPG, 3 RPG, 4.5 APG, 1.5 SPG, 0.5 BPG), B. Suggs (9.5 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 3.5 APG, 0.5 SPG).

Appalachian State Mountaineers

It is a different story for the Mountaineers as they suffered a loss and immediately bounced back after. It was only Justin Forrest that came out swinging for the Mountaineers when they battled the Michigan Wolverines. He had 27 points and shot almost 50% from the field. There are no Mountaineers that produced double figures outside of Forrest. It was a better team effort during their win as Isaac Johnson came up with a near double-double with 15 points and nine rebounds. James Lewis Jr, Donovan Gregory and O’Showen Williams each produced double-digit scoring. It was the help that Forrest craved against the Wolverines. East Carolina should not be taken lightly but a win here would give the team a good morale boost having two consecutive victories.

Players to Watch: J. Forrest (22 PPG, 4 RPG, 1.5 APG, 1.5 SPG), I. Johnson (12 PPG, 8 RPG, 1 APG, 1.5 SPG), O.Williams (8.5 PPG, 3 RPG, 0.5 APG, 1.5 SPG).
