ATLANTA - Trae Goldston scored 19 points and Xavier Hansbro added 15 points and nine rebounds to lead Georgia State to a 64-54 victory over Jacksonville Monday at the GSU Sports Arena.

Goldston scored all 19 of his points in the first half, and in the second half, it was Hansbro who came up big for the Panthers (4-4) with
13 points in the final 12 minutes. The 6-10 senior, made five of his six shots and grabbed five rebounds in a second half in which the Panthers shot 60 percent from the field.

With the score tied at 38-all with under 12 minutes to play, Ousman Krubally completed a three-point play to give Georgia State the lead for good. James Fields added a layup and then a jumper by Hansbro put the Panthers ahead 45-39 with 8:39 to play.

The Dolphins (0-4) cut their deficit to two, but Hansbro answered with basket for a 47-43 GSU lead with seven minutes left. Jacksonville managed to get within three points three more times over the next three minutes, but each time Hansbro scored. He made a layup and a short jumper, and then his free throws with 4:12 to go put GSU ahead 53-48, and the Dolphins could get no closer.
 
Man, back in the 70s and early to mid-80s, the Dolphins were good. They really fell on hard times and have never recovered.

Yeah, I remember some very tough Sunbelt games with them.

Calvin Duncan was committed to Jacksonville before he decided to suit up for the Rams. That should say something. They were quite the program back in the day.
 
I believe our first ever Sun Belt game was against the Tates Locke/James Ray Dolphins at the Coliseum. We lost a heartbreaker, something like 66-64. We followed it up with another home loss to South Alabama, really digging ourselves a hole. As we know, however, we turned it around in a big way by the end of the season and ended up dancing for the first time.
 
JU will always be remembered for Artis Gilmore, he plaled in the ABA and had maybe the all time fro for any player in the pros. He was 7'4 I think, probably the first 7footer that was worth a darn
