The Georgia State men’s basketball team will host UTSA in its Bracketbuster game at 7 p.m. on Feb. 18 at the Sports Arena. This will be their first meeting in basketball since 2008. Georgia State (14-8, 6-5) trails in the series 5-7. The Bracketbuster games are designed to matchup non-conference opponents with similar RPIs, in an attempt to improve their eligibility in the eyes of the NCAA tournament committee. The Roadrunners (14-7, 6-1 Southland), who have won their past five games and eight of their past nine, are No. 182 in the NCAA’s recent RPI. The Panthers are No. 160. UTSA averages 75.7 points per game, led by Melvin Johnson III. The Panthers are 4-2 in Bracketbuster games.
