GAME NOTES:The Utah Valley State Wolverines and the Georgia State Panthers are set to meet as part of the South Alabama Thanksgiving Tournament.

Utah Valley State opened the season with an eight-point decision over South Dakota State, but the Wolverines have dropped back-to-back decisions since that point. The were most recently in action last Thursday when they dropped a 76-51 decision to Minnesota on the road.

As for Georgia State, it fell to 2-3 overall with a heartbreaking 67-56 overtime loss to IUPUI on Sunday. The Panthers have rotated wins and losses throughout the early portion of this season, and if the trend continues, tonight's affair will result in a victory.

This game marks the first-ever meeting between Georgia State and Utah Valley State on the hardwood.

Generating offense has proven to be problematic for Utah Valley State this season, as the team is scoring only 60.7 ppg on 44.8 percent shooting from the floor. The Wolverines are actually holding opponents to 38.6 percent field goal efficiency, but foes are scoring 68.7 ppg. Jordan Swarbrick is the top offensive performer for Utah Valley State this season, as he is netting 13.0 ppg to go along with 5.7 rpg and 3.0 apg. Justin Baker is the only other double-digit scorer on the roster, as he provides 11.0 ppg. In the loss to Minnesota last time out, Swarbrick tallied 11 points, but he was the only Wolverine in double figures. The team turned the ball over a crippling total of 26 times, 21 more than the Golden Gophers. A 17-7 deficit in points from the foul line certainly hurt the cause for Utah Valley State.

Georgia State is scoring only 60.2 ppg this season, an even lower output than offensively-challenged Utah Valley State. Fortunately for the Panthers, they have been able to somewhat offset their scoring troubles by limiting opponents to 57.4 ppg on 38.9 percent shooting from the floor. Georgia State is outrebounding opponents by an even 10.0 rpg, so it is hard to believe that the team has a losing record considering that stat. Joe Dukes is the leading scorer for Georgia State with 11.6 ppg, and Trae Goldston checks in with 10.0 ppg. In the overtime loss to IUPUI a couple of days ago, the Panthers misfired on six of their eight field goal attempts in the extra session and finished the game shooting 39.6 percent from the floor. They only had nine assists in the tilt and turned the ball over 22 times. Dukes posted 14 points, six rebounds, five assists and five steals, while Ousman Krubally tallied 11 points and 13 rebounds.

In what figures to be a close game from start to finish, give a narrow edge to Georgia State. The Panthers will play with added motivation after the disappointing overtime loss last time out.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Georgia State 65, Utah Valley State 57
