App State basketball gets home victory over Texas State

For the third time this season, Justin Forrest drained a three in the closing seconds as App State men’s basketball overcame an 18-point first half deficit in a 60-57 comeback victory over Texas State on Saturday afternoon.

With the score deadlocked at 57-57, Forrest stepped up and drained a three-pointer to give the Mountaineers (14-11, 8-6 SBC) a 60-57 lead with 18.5 seconds left. A three by the Bobcats (15-10, 8-6 SBC) as time expired was no good, giving App State its fourth win in its last five games.

Forrest has also drained a game-winning trey against Georgia Southern on Jan. 4 and hit a three to force overtime against Arkansas State on Jan. 16. He finished with 14 points, four rebounds and a career-high seven assists.

O’Showen Williams tallied a game-high 19 points, while adding five rebounds and a pair of steals. Hunter Seacat added a near double-double with 10 points and nine rebounds. Isaac Johnson chipped in with eight points and six rebounds. Johnson now has 905 rebounds in his career and is just one five players in program history to pull down 900 or more rebounds in his App State career.

In the first half, the Mountaineers jumped out to a 13-8 lead, only to see Texas State respond with a 24-2 run to take a 32-15 lead. Trailing 36-18, the Black and Gold closed the first half on a 13-0 run to cut its deficit to 36-31 at the break.

Texas State pushed its lead back to nine points in the second half, before App State got baskets from Williams and Seacat to pull within 53-48. Following a Bobcat basket, App State scored the next nine points, capped off by a basket from Johnson, to take a 57-55 lead with 1:52 left. Texas State tied the score on its next possession, but Forrest’s clutch three in the closing moments secured the Mountaineers victory.

The Black and Gold held a 37-28 edge in rebounding, including an 11-5 advantage on the offensive glass. The Mountaineers also outscored the Bobcats 18-5 on the fast break.

Mason Harrell and Caleb Asberry each had 11 points for the Bobcats, while Marlin Davis dished out a game-high 11 assists.

App State will hit the road for a pair of key conference games next weekend. The Mountaineers play at Georgia State on Thursday at 7 p.m. and Georgia Southern on Feb. 15 at 4 p.m.
