Statesboro, GA (Sports Network) - Eric Ferguson scored 24 points including eight straight at the end of regulation as the Georgia Southern Eagles rallied to a 68-64 overtime win over the Georgia State Panthers at Hanner Fieldhouse.

Ferguson shot 7-of-13 from the field and 8-of-11 from the foul line to lead Georgia Southern (6-7), which never led in regulation. Tre Bussey helped out with 17 points while C.J. Reed dished out a game-high five assists.

R.J. Hunter and DeVonta White each scored 14 points for the Panthers (5-8) but committed 13 turnovers between them. James Vincent and Manny Atkins both netted 11 points with Vincent blocking five shots, all in the first half.

The Panthers led by 10 points with 1:58 remaining in regulation. Brian Holmes cut it to eight with a steal and layup before Ferguson scored eight straight to tie the game and force overtime. In that stretch, Georgia State turned the ball over four times.

Midway through the extra session, C.J. Reed hit a triple to give the Eagles their first lead of the game. Ferguson followed with a three of his own and late free throws by Cameron Baskerville sealed the improbable victory for Georgia Southern.

Georgia Southern leads the all-time series with its in-state rival, 32-13.
