Men’s Basketball Gameday Nugget: UALR

The streak continues and so does the national exposure from a wide variety of entities. If you are following us along on our journey on this blog, please make sure to also follow Georgia State Athletics on Twitter (@GSUPanthers) and Facebook (GeorgiaStateAthletics) as there will be a lot of stuff coming up in the next few weeks that you will want to know about and hopefully enjoy reading.

Georgia State will look for its 14th-straight win tonight as the Panthers are in Little Rock, Ark., to face UALR, a team the Panthers beat just a few weeks ago in the Sports Arena.

It has been well documented the last few weeks that we have three players that will soon break the 1,000-point plateau, in addition to Devonta White who accomplished the feat last season. R.J. Hunter in closing in and is just a sophomore. So where does that rank in GSU history, that is what today’s edition of the Men’s Basketball Gameday Nugget is for.


R.J. Hunter will reach the 1,000-point plateau shortly and most likely become the second-quickest player to reach the accomplishment in Georgia State history. Here is a list of the quickest to get to 1,000-career points:
    1. Phillip Luckydo – 49 games
    2. Chris Collier – 57 games
    3. Thomas Terrell – 58 games
*R.J. Hunter currently has 971 points in 53 games

Be sure to come back next Thursday for another Men’s Basketball Gameday Nugget as the Panthers return home to face Texas State for the first time this season in the Sports Arena at 7 p.m.
