ATLANTA, GA.- Georgia State was defeated 3-0 ( 25-16, 25-14, 25-21) Saturday evening at the GSU Sports Arena. Crystal Lee led the Panthers with eight kills.

The Panthers fell behind early in the match as Texas State took the first set 25-16, despite a late 3-0 scoring run from GSU. Lee put down five kills in the second frame, but the Bobcats would prevail 25-14. A trio of blocks by Sydney Stroud highlighted the close third set, but Texas State would eek out a third set win to clinch the match.

The loss dropped GSU to 2-3 in the young Sun Belt season, while Texas State improved to 7-0. Despite the loss, Georgia State was able to split a pair of matches this weekend as the Panthers defeated UT Arlington 3-1 Friday night.

Next up for the Panthers is a Tuesday afternoon date with Coastal Carolina. Georgia State will host the Chanticleers at the GSU Sports Arena at 4:30 Tuesday in a match originally scheduled for September 21, but postponed due to Hurricane Florence.
