The Appalachian State men's basketball team made history Wednesday night.


The Mountaineers, who will play Marshall in the quarterfinal round of the CollegeInsider.Com Tournament Monday night, picked up their first post-season win at the NCAA level in school history by knocking off Harvard 93-71 at the Holmes Convocation Center. But it was also Appalachian's sixth post-season win, and the school's first in nearly 70 years.
The Mountaineers, who were known at Appalachian State Teachers College from 1929-1967, won their last post-season game against Kansas Wesleyan in the 1942-43 season. The victory came in the NAIA National Tournament. As a matter of fact, the Mountaineers were 6-4 in NAIA post-season games from 1939-1943.
We want to thank Jim Jones of ASU for sharing this information with us. Our coverage of Monday night's game begins at 6:15 pm on WATA 1450 AM. The ASU women, who picked up their first post-season win in school history Thursday night by knocking off Charleston Southern in the opening-round of the Women's Basketball Inviational Tournament, take on Fairfield at the Holmes Convocation Center Sunday afternoon in a quarterfinal game.
Game time is set for 2 pm, and our coverage begins at 1:30 pm on WATA 1450 AM.
