ATLANTA - Georgia State led WKU for much of Sunday's competition at the GSU Sports Arena, but the Panthers were defeated 74-63 as the Lady Toppers took advantage of GSU turnovers in the fourth quarter.
Kierra Henry led Georgia State with 15 points and she added six rebounds. Shay Fluker added 14 points and was GSU's rebounding leader with seven. Fluker was a nice addition to GSU Sunday after she missed the previous two games due to injury.
As a team, the Panthers got 22 points off their bench and outrebounded WKU 32-28. The turning point, however, was WKU's ability to force turnovers. The Lady Toppers scored 27 points off 27 turnovers.
Henry finished the GSU Thanksgiving Classic with 28 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists to earn a spot on the All-Classic team.
Next up for the Panthers is a short trip to Kennesaw State next Thursday for a 7 p.m. game.
