Georgia State lost at home in overtime to Old Dominion 65-60 at home on Senior Night Wednesday, meaning they'll travel to William & Mary Saturday afternoon with a chance to clinch the sixth overall seed in the CAA Championship Tournament next week in Richmond.

Jihad Ali was among six seniors on the floor for the Panthers Wednesday night, leading Georgia State with 20 points, but Ali failed to hit a long three pointer to tie the game late in overtime. The Panthers gave up 25 rebounds against Old Dominion.

A win Saturday at William & Mary would also give Georgia State its fourth 20-win season in school history.
