The Panthers (7-3) have won seven straight games—one shy of the school record. The record mark of eight consecutive wins was set by the Panthers’ 2001 NCAA Tournament team. Georgia State’s start under first-year coach Ron Hunter is its best since that 2000-01 team started 11-1.
The Panthers had their best offensive performance since a 99-72 win over Delaware to open the 2005-06 season.
Georgia State took control of the game with a strong offensive first half in which the Panthers committed just one turnover en route to a 46-33 lead at halftime. Trailing 15-13 at the 12:37 mark of the first half, Georgia State scored the next 14 points and never looked back.
Jamal Wilson led the Rams (1-9) with 20 points.
