A horrific 3-point shooting night by Georgia State and timely shooting by Texas State saw the Panthers fall 77-74 in two overtimes on Monday at the GSU Sports Arena. The loss snapped Georgia State’s 18-game home winning streak.
Exemplified by R.J. Hunter missing all 10 of his 3-pointers, the Panthers missed 14 of 16 to drop their first Sun Belt Conference game this season. Hunter, the team’s leading scorer and projected to be a first-round NBA draft pick finished with 10 points, his second consecutive sub-par scoring performance after going for 14 in Saturday’s win over Arkansas-Little Rock. Ryan Harrow led the Panthers on Monday with 29 points. Kevin Ware added 14.
