Georgia State will begin a 5-game, 10-day road trip at Colorado State on Friday night at 9 p.m. ET. Make sure to listen to the game live on 1340 The Fan 3 and WRAS-FM 88.5 with Brandon Leak calling the action.
It will mark the first time that the two schools meet on the court and just ninth time the Panthers face a program from the current Mountain West.
Running through the entire season, the InsideGSUSports blog will present the Number of the Game, a quick number and explanation of its significance before tip-off.
The number will come from a variety of different places, but will always be significant to the team or that specific game.
