Harrow with 17 points, Georgia St. shoots 62 percent from the floor and rolls past Troy 75-64


TROY, Alabama — Ryan Harrow scored 17 points to help Georgia State roll to a 75-64 victory over Troy on Saturday.

The Panthers (20-9, 13-5 Sun Belt Conference) bounced back after having its four-game win streak snapped by Arkansas-Little Rock on Thursday night, and pulled even with Louisiana-Monroe and Georgia Southern, which lost to Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday night, for first place in the conference.

Georgia State led 39-25 at the break and stretched it to 57-34 with 9:43 to play.

Harrow was 7 of 12 from the floor and Markus Crider chipped in 13 points for the Panthers, who shot 62 percent from the floor.

Musa Abdul-Aleem scored the Trojans' last 12 points and finished with 19 and Wesley Person Jr. added 12 for Troy (10-18, 5-14), which has lost six of its last seven games.
