SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Tevin Baskin hit the go-ahead layup to cap a six-point spurt and added a crucial block with 4 seconds left as Appalachian State held Wofford scoreless for the final 6:57 to win 50-49 Tuesday night.

The Mountaineers (5-8, 1-1 Southern Conference) led 36-27 early in the second half, but Spencer Collins scored seven straight points as part of an 8-0 Terriers run.

Wofford (6-9, 0-2) used another 8-0 burst to lead 47-40, and Collins, who led the Terriers with 13 points, hit a jumper with 6:57 left to make it 49-44. Those were Wofford's final points, with the Terriers missing 10 shots, including Justin Gordon's layup attempt blocked by Baskin.

Tab Hamilton started the Appalachian State comeback with a jumper with 5 minutes remaining, followed by Mike Neal's layup with 4:18 left and Baskin's layup with 2:32 to go.

Baskin and Nathan Healy led the Mountaineers with 10 points apiece.
