Georgia State vs. Troy final score: Panthers fall just short of huge comeback

Lance King

The Georgia State Panthers fell just short of what would have been a huge comeback on Saturday, losing to Troy, 57-56.

Georgia State put together a great effort in a comeback bid on Saturday against Troy, but ultimately failed to bring it back, losing by a single point, 57-56. The Panthers outscored Troy by a score of 40-27 in the second half, but due to a very poor showing at the beginning of the game, they weren't able to come out with the win.

The first half saw them outscored 30-16.

No single player had much of a big game for the Panthers, with Devonta White leading the way with just 13 points. On the one hand, you could call the game balanced; on the other, you can point out the fact that the Panthers had a field goal percentage of 38.8 and a three-point shooting percentage of 23.1.

Both Manny Atkins and James Vincent managed to pull down nine rebounds. Ray Chambers had 18 points for Troy, shooting 8-for-11 from the field, with seven rebounds of his own.

With the loss, Georgia State moved to 5-5, with a 1-3 record on the road, while Troy is now 5-7.
