Georgia State Panthers Men’s Basketball To Play 4 Televised Games

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

At CAA Media Day, the conference announced the final slate of television games for their eleven teams during this winter’s season.

Under the conference’s new television package, the Georgia State Panthers men’s basketball program will play four games on TV during this 2012-2013 season.

First, the Panthers will kick their season off against the Duke Blue Devils on November 9 on ESPNU. Next, on December 2, head coach Ron Hunter’s club will play at Liberty on the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN). On January 12, the Panthers welcome CAA rival Delaware on Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS) and they will play their final TV contest at George Mason on CSS on February 16.

The Panthers are ready to play this season entering their final year in the CAA this season. Coming off a 22-12 campaign last season, the Panthers feel ready to challenge the Blue Devils who ranked 8th in the nation last season, return four starters and are lead by legendary head coach Mike Krzyzewski.

GSU themselves will be returning two starters this season and also brought in an impressive recruiting and transfer class as well. The Panthers seem poised to make a run at the top 5 of the conference standings when all is said and done this March, despite the CAA Media Day preseason end-of-year projections ranking the Georgia State 8th out of the 11 teams.

The Panthers will rely heavily on Preseason All-CAA Second Team selection Devonta White to lead them to victory. If Duke, Liberty and the Panthers’ other non-conference opponents don’t prepare for them, Georgia State will be winning a lot of games this season.
