The Georgia State men’s basketball team got things going early this morning as the Panthers met with the media and got in some shots at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.

After arriving at the arena, senior Jordan Session, juniors Malik Benlevi and Devin Mitchell along with sophomore D’Marcus Simonds took questions at the podium from the media. Head coach Ron Hunter followed while other members of the team met with a large contingent of media in the locker room.

Three years ago in Jacksonville, the Panthers quickly became the Cinderella of the Big Dance. Session was a member of that team and has talked with his teammates all week about what it will take to knock off No. 2-seed Cincinnati.
