Because of lightning, Georgia State’s first spring football practice was cancelled.
So now the Panthers will open spring football on Thursday. Today’s practice has been rescheduled for Friday.
In basketball news, Georgia State hammered Tennessee Tech last night. The Panthers will play Mercer at 4 p.m. Saturday in the second round of the CIT. The Bears beat Tennessee State last night.
I’ve seen Mercer play twice: their loss at Georgia and their victory over Georgia Tech. They probably could have beaten the Bulldogs, but both of their big men got into foul trouble quickly in the second half and they weren’t able to recover. Those big men played well against the Yellow Jackets. They are a quality team. I’ll have more about this matchup later this week.
