ATLANTA (AP) — Cooper Robb hit nothing but net from beyond half court and his lone 3-pointer of the night at the buzzer carried Eastern Kentucky past Georgia State 62-61 on Friday night.
Dwon Odom, who scored 16 points for the Panthers, missed the first of a 1-and-1 at the foul line, the 6-foot-1 Robb grabbed the rebound and dribbled in inside the half-court line before burying his running 3.
The Panthers (2-2) led 43-28 at halftime. Devontae Blanton scored 18 points for Eastern Kentucky (2-2).
Both teams next play Saturday. Eastern Kentucky squares off against UNC Asheville while Georgia State hosts Texas A&M-Commerce.
