Hunter hits 10 3s, Georgia State routs ODU 83-63

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Freshman R.J. Hunter poured in a career-high 38 points, including a school- and Colonial Athletic Association-record 10 3-pointers, as Georgia State dismantled Old Dominion 83-63 Saturday.

Hunter, the son of coach Ron Hunter, hit 10 of 15 3-pointers and scored the most points by any CAA player this season. It's the most by a Georgia State player since Anton Reese had 38 in 1998.

The Panthers (12-12, 7-4), who've won 6 of their last seven games, led 33-28 at halftime. In one 5-minute stretch of the second half, Hunter scored 19 straight Georgia State points on five treys, two foul shots and a dunk. He finished 12 for 18 from the floor.

Georgia State, which shot a season-high 53.8% (28 for 52), got 16 points from Manny Atkins.

Old Dominion (2-19, 0-9), which lost its ninth straight, was 4 for 21 on 3-pointers. DeShawn posted a 15-point, 14-rebound double-double.
