mbb players to watch

Kane Williams led the Panthers to a win over Georgia Southern last season with a 23 point performance.

The Georgia State vs. Georgia Southern game is always a sight to see. It will likely be an offensive shootout on the court with loads of defense. The rivalry between the two teams is personal this season, as the Panthers come into Hanner Fieldhouse as back-to-back Sun Belt Champions. Here are the three Panthers to watch. 

Kane Williams (12) 

Starting junior guard Kane Williams averages 13 points per game and has been a solid force on offense. He ranks fifteenth in the conference in scoring, second in assists and ninth in steals. In last season’s regular season finale against the Eagles, Williams led the team with 23 points and three steals.

 

Corey Allen (11)

Redshirt-junior guard Corey Allen has started all twenty games and leads the team with about 15 points per game. He ranks ninth in the conference in scoring, ninth in field goal percentage and fourth in three-pointers made.

 

Justin Roberts (2)

Redshirt-sophomore guard Justin Roberts averages about 13.6 points per game and leads the team with 36 steals on the season. He has only missed eight free throws the entire season and ranks thirteenth in the conference in scoring.
