Appalachian State Men’s Basketball Blows Out Regent

Tamell Pearson had his best game as a Mountaineer so far in a 100-32 win over Regent on Saturday.

The graduate student earned App State’s first double-double of the season, scoring 14 points and 12 rebounds, the highest tally of boards by any Mountaineer through the first 12 games.

Justin Abson achieved his career-high in points during the dominant win, scoring 11 to go along with seven rebounds, two blocks and two assists. The freshman’s 28 blocks are the 13th-most in the nation.

Christopher Mantis led all players in scoring with 17 on 7-9 shooting. The sophomore has scored three or more three-point baskets in four games this season. This was also the fourth game that Mantis led the team in scoring.

This was the third time this season that the Black & Gold tallied 100 points. They posted 142 against Warren Wilson and 103 vs. Carlow.

The Mountaineers earned a season-high 36 points off of turnovers, as well as 54 in the paint, 16 second-chance, 25 fast-break and 54 off the bench.

App State will finish nonconference play on Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET as the squad competes in the Jerry Colangelo Classic against UC Santa Barbara on ESPN+. The contest will be played at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Ariz., home of the Suns.
