The Panthers made 21 of their 24 free throws, including five of six in the final minute, to keep alive their hopes of finishing in fourth in the Colonial Athletic Association, which comes with a bye in the conference tournament.
Georgia State (18-9, 10-6) still needs a lot of help, though. The teams the Panthers are chasing, Delaware and Old Dominion, won Tuesday. With two conference games remaining, the Panthers need the Blue Hens to lose at least one and the Monarchs to lose both. Georgia State will play host to Old Dominion on Feb. 22.
