Men’s Basketball in Costa Rica – Day 5 Photo Blog

The Georgia State men’s basketball team took part in its second shoe distribution with Samaritan’s Feet on Monday morning. The Panthers traveled to the town of Guarari, which is a “shanty town” inhabited mainly by immigrants from Nicaragua.

Georgia State will be back in action for its final game of the eight-day trip on Monday night, facing San Ramon at 10 p.m. ET.

Make sure to check out the photo blogs from the first four days of the trip as well.
