SoCon Basketball 2012-13: Dec. 16 Previews

Greenville, South Carolina—Sunday has a couple of intriguing Southern Conference basketball non-conference matchups, as Appalachian State (1-7) will be in Kansas City, looking to end a seven-game losing streak—as well as its first win against a Division I win of the season—when the Mountaineers face University of Missouri-Kansas City out of the Summit League on Sunday afternoon.

Chattanooga, who is out to just a 2-7 start on the young season, will look to bounce back from an 80-67 loss to LSU at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center on Tuesday night against LSU, as they face a Mercer team that has handed the Mocs a pair of losses the last two times the teams have met, including a 67-56 setback last season in Macon. 

Mercer, the reigning CIT champs, have now knocked off ACC members each of the past two seasons, including in its most recent win over Florida State (61-56).

The Bears defeated Georgia Tech (65-59) in Atlanta last season, and boast a perfect 4-0 mark against the Southern Conference competition since the start of the 2011-12 season, including a 73-46 win over Furman three weeks ago.
