    BOONE, N.C. (AP) -- Chris McFarland had 19 points and Noah Brown added 18 to lead Appalachian State to a 79-49 win over Erskine in Saturday's season-opener.

    Appalachian (1-0) opened the game with a six-point run, holding the Flying Fleet without a basket until the 17:18 mark and finishing the half with a 30-18 lead despite shooting 34.2 percent from the field.

    Appalachian never let Erskine (0-1) any closer than seven through the rest of the game, rattling off 13 straight points after the break and spreading the lead as wide as 26 points early in the half.

    The Mountaineers shot 31.3 percent from three-point range, more than doubling their first half percentage, and forced 34 Erskine turnovers. Appalachian shot 53.8 percent in the second half and grabbed 20 boards.

    Erskine was paced by Matt Odom's 15 points, while Kevin Parker and Reed Long each added 10.
