BOONE - The Appalachian State University football team is hard at work putting together its next recruiting class.

BANNER ELK, N.C. – In front of a sold out crowd at Williams Gymnasium, Lees-McRae College men's basketball team made a valiant comeback Friday night against King University. LMC trailed by as many as 15 points to the Tornado in the second half before the Bobcats rallied to take the lead with 1:26 to go in regulation. Even with the impressive rally by Lees-McRae, King knocked down seven key free throws down the stretch to seal the 102-98 win over the Bobcats. LMC's record for the regular season concludes at 20-8 overall and 13-5 in conference play.
