Georgia State rallies to beat William & Mary 74-58
GEORGIA ST 74, WILLIAM & MARY 58
ATLANTA (AP) -- Manny Atkins scored 21 points and Rasheed
Richardson scored all 12 of his in the second half as Georgia
State rallied for a 74-58 victory over William & Mary on
Wednesday night in Colonial Athletic Association play.
The Panthers (7-11, 2-3), who had lost seven of their past eight
games, trailed 33-25 before getting a 3-pointer from Kevin Shaw
just before the halftime buzzer.
Two baskets by Atkins and a 3-pointer by Richardson lifted
Georgia State into a 35-35 tie early in the second half. The
Panthers took the lead for good, 48-43, with an 8-0 run that
included two baskets by Richardson.
Tim Rusthoven had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Tribe (7-9,
1-4), who have lost six straight.
Georgia State's Ron Hunter coached barefoot, the sixth straight
season he's done so in a game in support of Samaritan's Feet, an
organization that provides shoes for underprivileged children.
