On Thursday, November 2nd, the Lees-McRae Bobcats visited Georgia State Panthers for an exhibition game, and were stunned by a final score of 100-64.
LMC brought a scrappy defense to Georgia State, however, their offense just couldn’t get it going against GSU’s stout defense and quickness down the court. Much like the game against Georgia Tech, GSU “stole the show” in steals, nabbing 16 balls to LMC’s 9 nabs.

After the game, LMC’s Coach Hardin (@LM_Coach_Hardin) said “Playing at GSU was great for us. We take great pride in trying to play the toughest schedule we can. We competed all night, but were outmatched. Our program will not face another team as talented as GSU again this season.”
Coach Hardin continued, “Coach Hunter does a fantastic job with his team. GSU will be in the NCAA tournament this year. Hopefully this game will help us down the road during Division II play.”
LMC’s (a Division II College) average point loss against D1 teams, prior to tonight, was just 5 points.
