Men’s Basketball Number of the Game: 83

Georgia State concludes its stretch of three-straight games on the road facing UL Monroe in a battle of first-place teams on Thursday night at 8 p.m. at Fant-Ewining Coliseum. The two programs, along with Georgia Southern, enter the final two games of the season tied for first-place with the Panthers hosting Georgia Southern on Saturday.

Make sure to listen to tonight’s game on 1340 The Fan 3, WRAS-FM 88.5 or on the GSU mobile apps as Dave Cohen calls the action.

As much as it has been a remarkable season, it really has been an incredible four years under head coach Ron Hunter. The team has already secured its third 20-plus win in four seasons and when you put it all together, it leads to our number today.

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.

Tonight’s Number of the Game:


A Georgia State win tonight would be No. 83 in the last four years and would tie for the best four-year stretch in program history, accomplished twice. Senior Ryann Green has been a part of those 82 wins entering tonight, one shy of Donnie Davis and Lamont McIntosh who were the only two players apart of each 83-win stretch.

Make sure to come back to the InsideGSUSports blog on Saturday for the final regular season Men’s Basketball Number of the Game as the Panthers return home to face Georgia Southern.
