#14 GEORGIA STATE
IT’S MARCH MADNESS. HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.
Georgia State returns to the NCAA tournament for the first time in 14 years on Thursday. At 1:40 p.m. ET the Panthers take on Baylor in Jacksonville, Fla. The game can be heard live on WIFN-AM 1340 The Fan 3 and will be broadcast live on TBS. Fans who can’t make it to Jacksonville can gather at a watch party at the Student Recreation Center on campus, Six Feet Under in Grant Park or Moe’s BBQ in Midtown.
The Panthers last qualified for the NCAA tournament in 2001 under former head coach Charles “Lefty” Driesell. The Panthers are led by two-time Sun Belt Player of the Year R.J. Hunter. The son of head coach Ron Hunter has broken nearly every Georgia State career record in his three seasons with the Panthers.
