Georgia State are back in the mix at the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2001, and their reward is a second round meeting with Baylor.
Where: Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, Jacksonville.
When: Thursday March 19, 13:40 (ET)
No.3 seed Baylor Bears are making consecutive appearances in the tournament for the first time in their school history, and they will come into the competition having won eight of their 12 tournament games under Scott Drew.
Meanwhile, No. 14 seed Georgia State will be hoping for a happy return to the competition after winning the Sun Belt Conference, and they will be looking ahead to their first ever meeting with the Bears.
The Panthers are 1-2 overall in NCAA tournament games, while their rivals hold an 11-10 record and start the game as the favourites.
What is perhaps certain in this contest is that there will be points on the board, as Georgia State are averaging 72 points per game while Baylor are scoring 70 points per contest. The latter is limiting opposing teams better on the defensive end, but this should be an entertaining clash on Thursday.
Junior R.J Hunter leads the line for the Panthers with 19.8 points and 2.2 steals per game which are team highs this year, although the guard is shooting 39.4 percent from the field which suggests that he could be more efficient.
For the Bears, forward Taurean Prince will look to inspire his team to a win after scoring 13.8 points per game on average this year while shooting 47 percent from the field.
Prince is also a threat from beyond the arc and is averaging 1.5 steals per game, and so if he can get into his game and make Baylor tick, they will confident of overcoming their second round foes and advancing in the tournament.
