Recap: Georgia State vs. Delaware

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Devon Saddler drained a 3-pointer just before time expired, lifting the Delaware Blue Hens to a dramatic 86-83 victory over the Georgia State Panthers in Colonial Athletic Association play from GSU Sports Arena.

Saddler, the CAA's leading scorer, finished with a game-high 29 points. Jarvis Threatt added 18 points for the Blue Hens (8-8, 3-0 CAA), who claimed their 10th consecutive regular-season conference victory. Josh Brinkley and Jamelle Hagins scored 12 and 11 points, respectively.

Manny Atkins led the way with 20 points for the Panthers (6-11, 1-3), who have now lost seven of their last eight games. Devonta White chipped in with 18 points, R.J. Hunter scored 15, and Rashaad Richardson finished with 13 in the loss.

GSU scored the game's first seven points, but Delaware weathered the early storm and eventually took a 27-23 lead with six minutes to play in the opening frame. The Panthers answered right back with a 13-2 run, and they went into the break leading 42-37.

The Blue Hens regained the lead at the 15:43 mark of the second stanza and never trailed again the rest of the way, although things certainly got interesting down the stretch. GSU trailed 81-70 with 1:41 to play before rallying all the way back to tie the score at 83-83 on a pair of free throws by Ryann Green with six seconds on the clock. However, that proved ample time for Saddler to take the ball across half court and bury the game-winner just before the final buzzer sounded.

Delaware shot 50 percent or better from the floor in each half and also had 26 points from the foul line to earn the road win.
