Georgia State had an impressive start to open their era under new head coach Rob Lanier. The Panthers dismantled Brewton-Parker 104-35 in their season opener. Meanwhile, the College of Charleston also had a stellar start to the season, beating USC Upstate 74-55.

This Saturday's game features two teams with NCAA tournament aspirations and the talent to get both there. The contest tips off at 2 p.m. EST at TD Arena.

The Panthers set a blistering pace in season-opening win

The Panthers set a school record for the largest margin of victory when they beat Brewton-Parker by 69 points. Leading the way for Georgia State was Damon Wilson who scored 22 points. Wilson will lead the charge against a talented College of Charleston defense that'll provide much more pushback than the Barons did.

For the Panthers to be successful on Saturday, they'll need a concerted effort by their whole cast including freshmen Joe Jones III and Jalen Thomas. Having that depth allows the Panthers to continue to push the tempo, which they'll need to do against a Cougars squad that wants to slow the pace.

Defensively, Georgia State held the Barons to 22 percent shooting. They'll need that smoother defense to stifle a College of Charleston offense that returns much of its offensive production from last season.

The Cougars are experienced and talented

The player to watch is Grant Riller. Riller scored 26 points in the Cougars' 74-55 win over USC Upstate. Along with his stellar performance, Brevin Galloway and Sam Miller had strong games. Miller came off the bench to earn a career-high 14 rebounds.

The depth the Cougars possess is vital against a Panthers team that wants to push the tempo. By having players like Miller who can come off the bench and be a presence in the paint, it will challenge Georgia State who's used to wearing teams down.

Moreover, Riller's ability to create scoring opportunities will present Georgia State with a unique challenge. If they choose to focus more on him, it'll open up room for players like Galloway to make easy baskets.

Defensively, the biggest area of emphasis for the Cougars has been on rebounding. Against USC Upstate, they allowed seven offensive rebounds in the first half. In the second half, they locked it down and USC Upstate only had one rebound. The Cougars need to have a more consistent performance against a Georgia State squad who thrives on second-chance opportunities.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Panthers want to make this a quick-tempo game. However, the Cougars have the athleticism and depth to challenge Georgia State. Look for the College of Charleston to use their depth to control the tempo of the game and dominate on the glass, limiting the Panthers' ability to have second chance opportunities. Along with defense, the difference-maker in this game is Riller, whose skill creates many scoring opportunities for the Cougars. Look for the College of Charleston to win a close game.

Prediction: College of Charleston

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The Cougars' defensive prowess slows the tempo of the game down and makes it more of a half-court battle, which doesn't fare favorably with the Panthers. Look for Rilley to use this tempo to create ample scoring opportunities while Georgia State struggles to contain him. The Cougar pull out a hard-fought victory at home in a lower-scoring contest.

Prediction: Under
