After nine days off for the holidays, Appalachian State women's basketball will ring in the New Year with a 12 p.m. contest against

Longwood on Saturday, Dec. 31 at the Holmes Center.
The Mountaineers (8-2) saw their eight-game winning streak come to an end in a loss at No. 15/17 Georgia last Thursday while the Lancers (2-11) will take on No. 3 Notre Dame before heading to the High Country on Saturday.
Read more below for the latest news and notes on the Mountaineers, including their most recent ranking in the CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Top 25.

 

Almost There
• Junior forward Anna Freeman needs just 10 more points to become the 21st player in ASU history to reach 1,000 for her career.
• She is averaging a team-best 16.7 points per game, a scoring mark that has her ranked second in the SoCon.
• In addition to nearing a career-scoring milestone, Freeman has been named as the SoCon Women's Basketball Player of the Week twice this season.
• She also currently ranks second in blocks (159) and fifth in steals (209).

 

Free-Throw Records?

• Freeman is currently shooting 91.7 percent (33-for-36) on the season while Weldon is at 90.0 percent (18-for-20). Should both players keep up their respective pace, they would finish as the top two single-season free-throw shooters in Appalachian State history, breaking a record currently held by Jane Dalton (89.0 percent - 1987-88).
• In order to qualify for the top-10 list, a player must have a minimum of at least 25 free-throw attempts on the season
