Men’s Basketball Number of the Game: 12

This is it. One more regular season game for all the marbles as they say. Georgia State vs. Georgia Southern. GSU vs. GS. Panthers vs. Eagles. #StateNotSouthern vs. #SouthernNotState. And if the whole in-state rivalry wasn’t enough, let’s throw in that the winner earns the Sun Belt regular season championship, No. 1 seed in the conference tournament next week and will know that they will get to play in the postseason.

If you have your ticket already, we look forward to seeing you in the Sports Arena this afternoon. If you don’t, you can still watch on PantherVision HD or listen live to Dave Cohen, Rodney Turner and Brandon Leak call the action on 1340 The Fan 3 or on the GSU mobile apps.

It has been a remarkable season. I thought long and hard about the many different numbers that I could use today, but came up with the only one that I really thought that mattered.

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:


What does the No. 12 represent? That is the number of Georgia State Panthers who will dress today and so for the final regular season game, I thought I would give them one more shout-out.

Your Georgia State Panthers (by class): Ryann Green, Ryan Harrow, Curtis Washington, Jalen Brown, Markus Crider, R.J. Hunter, T.J. Shipes, Kevin Ware, Isaiah Dennis, Carter Cagle, Jordan Session and Corey Tobin.

These 12 players have helped put together another special season for the Panthers and deserved at least one last round of applause.

Make sure to come back to the InsideGSUSports blog next Saturday as the Panthers open up the Sun Belt Conference tournament in New Orleans.
