Georgia State has played three overtime games- and lost all of them. That has severely hurt the Panthers chances at a winning start. They are 4-5, so they may be better than some people perceive.
Georgia State is off to a 1-0 in start in CAA play with a one point home win over a very good James Madison team. They were picked to finish eleventh in the twelve team conference in the preseason polls. UNC-Wilmington was picked to finish behind them, and they were the only team. The CAA is always a very competitive conference and has earned a lot of respect nationally in recent years.
Georgia State features a pair of 6-10 players- Buckner being the best one that is really starting to come into his own.
For those interested in such things, the CAA Championship Game is the same day as the SoCon Championship Game- March 7.
