Men’s Basketball Number of the Game: 48.6

Georgia State returns home on Saturday to face Troy looking to snap a two-game losing streak and avenge the Panthers’ only lose in conference last season. If you can’t make it to the Sports Arena, make sure to listen to the game on 1340 The Fan 3 or WRAS-FM, 1230 The Fan 2 or watch the game on PantherVision HD. Tip is set for 2 p.m.

The Panthers continue to prove that they are one of the top offensive teams in the country. Not only are they among the leaders in the Sun Belt, but also in the nation.

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 Numbers of the Game:


Georgia State is shooting 48.6 percent from the floor this season, the No. 2 mark in the Sun Belt and No. 21 in the NCAA.

Come back Thursday for another number of the game as the Panthers host UT Arlington in the annual Barefoot for Bare Feet game in which coach Hunter coaches barefoot to raise awareness for Samaritan’s Feet.
