(Information in this team report is as of October 1.)
Georgia State's days in the high-scoring Atlantic Sun Conference are over. But don't expect the run-and-gun Panthers, who ranked 10th in the nation in three-pointers last year, to abandon their entertaining style of play now that they've made the shift to the Colonial.
With the return of just two starters -- both senior guards -- expect Georgia State to continue to live and die with the long-range shot.
"We're headed into uncharted waters now," said coach Michael Perry, who led the Panthers to a 14-15 record a year ago. "We'll rely on our four senior guards to set the tempo and lead the way."
