STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) - Louis Graham had 21 points and 9 rebounds to lead Georgia Southern to an 85-72 victory over Appalachian State Saturday, the sixth victory in a row for the once-beaten Eagles.

Southern (6-1, 2-0 Southern Conference) built a 42-31 halftime lead, using a 22-5 run over a 7:38 stretch to erase a 14-13 deficit. The rally was sparked by two 3-pointers by Anthony Marshall, who finished with 11 points.

Donte Minter led the Mountaineers (3-5, 0-2) with 19 points and Donald Sims came off the bench and added 12. Appalachian had won four in a row over the Eagles.

Three other Eagles scored in double figures with Dwayne Foreman getting 16, Matt Fields 11 and Willie Powers 10. Southern's 6-game winning streak has come since losing the season opener at Florida State 92-67.
