Men’s Basketball Number of the Game: 2

It’s Selection Sunday! It’s Sun Belt Championship Day! It’s #StateNotSouthern! It’s March Madness at its best! Today is a Sunday like no other Sunday’s during the year.

Georgia State will face Georgia Southern with an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament on the line at 1 p.m. ET live on ESPN2 in the Sun Belt championship game.

Winning a conference title is the subject of the Men’s Basketball Number of the Game, but before we get to that, here is today’s important information.

If you were not able to make it to New Orleans, you can either watch the game on ESPN2 or listen to 1340 The Fan 3 as Dave Cohen and Brandon Leak call the action. Free audio is also available on and the GSU mobile app.

The InsideGSUSports blog has presented the Number of  the Game all season and we plan to continue it for several weeks to come (you know where are heads are at).

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:


Decided to keep it simple today. The No. 2 represents the Panthers previous appearances in the NCAA tournament which came 10 years apart in 1991 and 2001.

We will be back with more Men’s Basketball Numbers of the Game later this week, so make sure to check back in with the InsideGSUSports blog to keep the fun rolling!
