College of Charleston’s men basketball team downed the Mountaineers of Appalachian State, 72-59, to extend its winning streak to three.
Senior leader Andrew Lawrence led the squad with 16 points while Anthony Stitt added an impressive seven rebounds and six assists.
Anthony Thomas set a new career-high with 14 points and posted seven boards against his former team.
After the game, Thomas spoke to his success.
“That’s something I’ve been working on all season: just being more assertive and helping my team out,” he said.
Tevin Baskin led the Mountaineers with 16 points on the evening.
Even more impressive than the Cougar’s scoring was their positive assist-to-turnover ratio for the fourth-straight game, and tying a season-low in turnovers. Lawrence spoke after the matchup about the team’s success.
“In a lot of our losses, me and Anthony (Stitt) have turned the ball over way too much,” he said. “That’s been a big key to why we lost a few we shouldn’t have lost. We’ve made a really concerted effort to focus on that, and it’s really starting to pay off.”
Charleston is back in action this Saturday at TD Arena for their Homecoming matchup against UNC-Greensboro at 7 p.m.
