App State Men’s Basketball Picked Fourth in Sun Belt East Division

The Sun Belt Conference announced its preseason men’s basketball coaches poll on Thursday. This season, the 12 schools will be split into a West Division and an East Division and will play divisional opponents during the regular season to minimize travel amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Appalachian State is picked to finish fourth in the East division.

The first conference games are set for New Year’s Day 2021. Appalachian State will open Sun Belt play at home against Troy. All 12 schools will compete in the Sun Belt Conference Championship which will be held March 5-8, 2021 in Pensacola, FL.
