SoCon Monster Game of the Week Announcement

With the change in how the Monster Game of the Week is selected, here is what David Sink the Davidson representative on Scanning the SoCon, had to say about his selection:

"John gets his wish! No need to write about Davidson this week. This week's Game of the Week is Thursday's ASU at GSU game. This game is key for the chances of ASU and GSU to make a run at the 4 seed. At 5-5 in conference games, ASU is 1/2 game behind Samford, the current leader for the 4 seed. The Mountaineers have lost 4 of their last 6. One of the wins in that stretch was a 2-pt OT win over GSU. GSU started the conference season 0-3, but they've won 4 of their last 7 and stand at 4-6. That leaves them 1 1/2 games behind Samford, tied with UNCG and a game behind WCU and ASU. ASU and WCU both travel to Statesboro and Davidson this week, UNCG travels to Furman and Wofford, and Samford hosts Citadel and CofC. Though they both need help from other teams, the winner of this game substantially improves their odds at the 4 seed. Pomeroy says ASU scores 63 and GSU scores 65. This one should be close and a lot of fun."

Appalachian State at Georgia Southern on Thursday night at 7:00 PM should be tremendous. Excellent selection.

  1. Good pick David, it should be a good game, depending on which team shows for both. I'd give a slight edge to ASU, but certainly with the game in Statesboro, the Eagles may excel.
