BOONE, North Carolina — Mike Hughes converted a 4-point play with 0.8 seconds left and Georgia Southern beat Appalachian State 101-100 on Monday night.

Appalachian State took a 98-93 lead with one minute left after Jacob Lawson's fast-break dunk. Hughes answered with a layup and after an empty possession for the Mountaineers, Jake Allsmiller made two free throws to cut Georgia Southern's deficit to 98-97 with 10 seconds left. Lawson hit two from the stripe with five seconds left for a three-point lead.

Freshman Tookie Brown scored a season-high 34 points for Georgia Southern (7-11, 3-5 Sun Belt). Hughes finished with 19 points and nine rebounds.
