Recap: Georgia State vs. South Alabama

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Manny Atkins and R.J. Hunter each established career-high point totals to lead Georgia State to a 75-73 win over South Alabama in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic finale at GSU Sports Arena.

Atkins poured in 26 points on 8-of-11 shooting and Hunter finished with 25 points, 14 of which came in the final 13 minutes, as the Panthers (3-2) completed the three-day tournament with an unbeaten record.

South Alabama (2-3) dropped to 0-3 for the event despite a career-best 31- point effort from Augustine Rubit, who also pulled down 11 rebounds in the loss. Xavier Roberson added 12 points in defeat.

After the Jaguars put together a 12-2 run capped by a Javier Carter layup that tied the contest at 49-49 with 13:26 left, Hunter knocked down 3-pointers on back-to-back possessions to put Georgia State ahead to stay.

The Jaguars trailed 74-67 with 1:30 left before a pair of triples by Roberson cut the deficit to one with 35 seconds to go, and South Alabama had one last chance to tie or win after Hunter made just 1-of-2 foul shots in the final seconds.

However, Mychal Ammons' jumper just before the final buzzer failed to find the net.

However, in the first Mountain West Conference home game in late September the squad actually threw a scare into nationally-ranked Fresno State, before dropping a 42-37 final.
