Georgia State’s men’s soccer team earned an at-large bid into the NCAA tournament today. The Panthers will play at No. 24 Duke at 7 p.m. Thursday.
The invite — the third in school history — continues a turnaround for the team, which is 13-7-2 this season after winning just four games two years ago. Though picked in the preseason to finish 12th in the CAA, they advanced to the semifinals of the conference tournament last week, where they were knocked out by Old Dominion, 5-3. They are one of five CAA teams to make the field. The Blue Devils (10-7-3) have beaten the Panthers twice in the past. The two teams haven’t played since 2004.
Georgia State is 0-5-1 against the tournament field.
