Men’s Basketball Number of the Game: 43.2

Georgia State visits a familiar foe when the Panthers travel to Norfolk, Va., to face former conference foe Old Dominion at the Ted Constant Center on Wednesday night at 8 p.m. The game will air live on the American Sports Network or you can listen to the game on 1340 The Fan 3 or WRAS-FM 88.5 with Dave Cohen calling the action as the Panthers look for their sixth straight win.

The Panthers will have had 13 days off when they take the court tonight. However, Georgia State is coming off an impressive 72-48 win over Green Bay which has been ranked as high as No. 1 in the NCAA RPI this season.

As you know, 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.

Today’s Number of the Game:


The number represents the combined point total of junior R.J. Hunter and senior Ryan Harrow. The duo make up the No. 1 scoring combo in the country. Both are in the top 25 in scoring. Here are the top tandems:

1. Georgia State (R.J. Hunter and Ryan Harrow): 23.3 + 19.9 = 43.2
2. Iona (A.J. English and David Laury): 24.4 + 18.3 = 42.7
3. Eastern Wash. (Tyler Harvey and Venky Jois): 20.5 + 20.3 = 40.8

Come back Sunday before the Panthers host Southern Miss and look to extend their home court winning streak to 16 games.
