Recap: Georgia State vs. Western Ky

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Harrow led the way with 20 points as the Georgia State Panthers dispatched the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, 73-55, in a Sun Belt Conference regular season finale at GSU Sports Arena.

Devonta White added 19 points for the Panthers (24-7, 17-1 SBC), who had already locked up the No. 1 seed and a double-bye to the semifinals in the conference tournament prior to the contest. R.J. Hunter chipped in 12 points, while Curtis Washington tallied nine points, seven rebounds and three blocks for GSU.

Payton Hulsey paced WKU (20-11, 12-6) with 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the floor off the bench. Chris Harrison-Docks netted 11 points and Ben Lawson pulled down eight boards as the Hilltoppers, who will be the No. 2 seed in the SBC Tournament, concluded their regular season with their second loss in three games.

Despite being limited to just over 40 percent efficiency from the floor in the opening period, the Panthers managed to take a 34-23 lead into the intermission. GSU's tough defensive play helped it take the double-digit advantage as WKU made only 37 percent of its field goal attempts including a 1-of-10 clip from beyond the arc in the first half.

The Panthers converted 14-of-20 free-throw attempts and limited the Hilltoppers to 33.3 percent shooting from the field in the second half to arrive at the 18-point decision.

GSU converted WKU's 12 turnovers into 17 points and outscored the visitors, 14-0, in fast break points.
