Georgia State's women's basketball team will play at home for the first time in two weeks with a Sunday afternoon game with Morehead State.
The Panthers are offering a $3 ticket, to go with the already free parking in the G Deck on Sunday. To pruchase that $3 Sunday ticket, just present a church bulletin at the ticket window on Sunday.That's all, any church bulletin from any denomination or service.
GSU had the annual week lay-off in order to study and take the final semester exams last week. They return to action Thursday in Nashville and will come back to their home court where the Panthers are 4-0 this season.
"We're always looking for extra ways to bring more fans to our winning women's basketball games and this ticket offer and our other advantages like the free parking and low-priced concessions make it a great Sunday afternoon family value," said GSU marketing rep Kyle McKeon.
Georgia State's opponent, Morehead State, brings another interesting twist in wondering what their head coach will wear. Coach Tom Hodges signed on with Loudmouth Golf, whose specialty is outrageous fan apparel. The company outfits pro golfer John Daly. Coach Hodges has a wide variety of colorful suits, pants, ties and accesories to liven up any gym.
The Panthers provide outrageous and fun basketball for their fans. GSU's aggressive defense is ranked among the national leaders in most categories as they chase, harass, challenge and contest every defensive possession.
GSU will have to be at their best to slow down Morehead State guard Terrice Robinson, who poured in 39 pionts in the Eagles last game aginst Ohio University. A Florida native, Robinson averages 16.2 per game.
Sunday's game will be only the second meeting ever between GSU and Morehead State, who last game to Atlanta 16 years ago.
The Panthers' up-tempo offense averages 70 points a game, led by an entire team of scorers who take turns scoring in double figures. It could be from 6-foot-3 Cody Paulk or 6-foot-2 Maryam Dogo's inside moves. It could be from slashing guards driving down the paint like Kayla Nolan or Ashley Watson. It could be from outside bombs from Kendra Long or Ashley Cole. And, the Panthers use 10 players in attacking all game long, so everyone plays a key role.
To go with your church bulletin, we'll also give you a free GSU program roster card that day to use and take home.
