SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Donald Sims scored 25 points and Appalachian State earned a 77-76 victory over Wofford on Monday night.

Sims shot 7-for-9 and nailed three 3-pointers for the Mountaineers (5-4, 1-1 Southern Conference). Isaac Butts contributed with a double-double, scoring 11 points and grabbing 13 rebounds.

The Mountaineers led by a slim 37-35 margin at halftime, but a layup from Butts with 4:55 remaining in the second half capped an 8-2 run for Appalachian State, giving them a 63-55 lead.

The Terriers (4-6, 0-2) stayed close, and a 3-pointer from Cameron Rundles cut the lead to 77-74 with 11 seconds remaining. Corey Godzinski then made a jumper with 1 second left for the final margin.

Appalachian State missed two free throws after that, but Wofford was unable to get a final shot off.

The Terriers were led by Noah Dahlman, who scored 25 points.
