Georgia State Vs. Hofstra, CAA Tournament: Game Preview, TV And More

Georgia State will open the 2012 Colonial Athletic Association Championship Tournament Friday against Hofstra, for the right to play George Mason in the second round.

The Panthers (20-10, 11-7 CAA) are the tournament's No. 6 seed, their highest seeding since entering the CAA in 2005. Georgia State capped its fourth 20-plus win season in the last 12 years this season. GSU is 4-2 all-time in opening round games of the CAA Tournament.

Georgia State's defense has been the hallmark of their 2011-'12 effort, as the Panthers are allowing just 59.5 points per game, second in the CAA and 19th in the NCAA.
