Georgia State’s men’s basketball team isn’t experiencing as much on-court success it did last year, but off the court the team is performing better.
The Panthers are seeing significant year-over-year increases in ticket sales in a variety of segments.
Georgia State’s season-ticket sales have increased by 51 percent, from 302 all of last year to 456 this year.
Georgia State’s group sales have increased by 35 percent, from 1,443 sold all of last year to 1,952 this year.
Georgia State’s courtside sales have increased from 10 all of last year to 16 this year.
Student attendance has increased by 13 percent through seven home games, from a 344 per-game average last year to 389 this year. School has been in session for three of the seven home games.
After going 22-12 in coach Ron Hunter’s first season, this year’s team, which is much less experienced than last year’s, is 5-6. The team will play at Rhode Island on Saturday. The Panthers’ next home game will be Jan.
