GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Manny Atkins, Ryan Harrow and R.J. Hunter combined for 73 points in leading Georgia State past East Carolina 89-82 Sunday.
Atkins paced Georgia State with 27 points and he also hauled in 12 rebounds.
Georgia State (7-6) led at the half 35-27 but East Carolina raced back in the second tying the game at 42 three minutes into the period on a Michael Zangari layup. The Pirates stayed with Georgia State until the Panthers took it to the paint, getting two layups followed by a resounding dunk by Atkins to go up by seven with 12 minutes left.
East Carolina (10-4) never recovered as Hunter and Harrow converted free throws down the stretch to preserve the win for Georgia State.
Akeem Richmond paced East Carolina with 21 points and Prince Williams added 18.
