Georgia Southern topped Appalachian State in dramatic fashion on Monday night, as Eagles guard Mike Hughes converted a four-point play in the final second of the game.

Hughes, who scored 19 points in the game, was fouled as he pulled up from near the center-court logo with 0.8 seconds left to play. The three-pointer tied the game at 100 and Hughes went to the line for a chance to take the lead. 

Hughes buried the free throw, too.

The Mountaineers were unable to get a shot off on their final possession and Georgia Southern improved to 3–5 in Sun Belt play.
