Post Game Thread - @ Georgia State
After a toss loss at Georgia Southern on Saturday night, TXST tries to avoid a road sweep in Georgia against Georgia State at 6pm on Monday night.

The teams are separated by 1/2 a game in the standings with GSU sitting in 4th at 9-5 and TXST in 5th at 8-5. GSU is coming off a loss to UTA on Saturday in which they led the entire game until UTA's Erick Neal drilled a 35-footer at the buzzer to steal the win for UTA.

The Panthers are led by 6'8" Sr Forward Jeremy Hollowell. Hollowell played his first two seasons at Indiana before transferring to GSU a couple years ago. Hollowell is scoring 15.7 PPG and pulling in 5.6 RPG. He shoots 35.7% from three as well. Their 2nd leading scorer is likely Nijal Pearson's biggest competitor for Sun Belt freshman of the year in 6'3" guard D'Marcus Simonds. Simonds, a 4-star recruit, was the 3rd highest rated player out of the state of Georgia last year. The freshman has made 15 starts and is averaging 12.6 PPG.

The Panthers have much more of a frontcourt presence than Georgia Southern did on Saturday. King and Tilbury are going to have to have big games defensively if the Bobcats have a shot at a road win here.

GSU currently favored by 7. Game is on ESPN3.

5-1 Bobcats at first media timeout.

Low scoring = good for us.

Rolling out some odd lineups.

Davis, Blount, Conley, Tilbury, Prijovic right now. Don't recall this configuration at all this year.

45-37 GSU with 11 minutes to play.

They are too athletic for us. Going to need some creative coaching to pull this out. We can't compete in one on one matchups.

We look tired tonight for some reason. 58-45 GSU with about 4 minutes left. I don't see a comeback happening here.

Josephs checking in with 2:08 left, meaning Kaspar has thrown in the towel.

63-49 GSU.

67-51 final.

2nd half was as bad as I've seen this year from an effort perspective. Looked like we gave up halfway through the half. Terrible game for us.

Have the Alabama schools next week in San Marcos in the final two home games of the year. Gonna have to sweep them probably for any chance at a top 4 seed.

That was a rough game in the 2nd half. Team looked gas.

I thought Pearson was going to go nuclear the way he started off the game.
