With the regular season wining down, it’s time to start looking ahead at the teams that can expect to be serious National Championship contenders.

Appalachian State Mountaineers NCAA Tournament Odds

Appalachian State Mountaineers outlook

The Mountaineers got into the tournament by winning the Sun Belt Tournament as the fourth seed in their conference. They will have to win one more game in order to get a shot at No. 1 overall seed Gonzaga, because a First Four date with Norfolk State is first up. Appalachian State shoots just 32.6 percent from downtown and 46.7 percent from inside the arc, so it will have to fare better than that if it wants to get the best of a pesky Norfolk State squad. Needless to say, just getting that win would make the Mountaineers’ NCAA Tournament campaign a smashing success.
