Quick Hits:
The Panthers have a veteran nucleus returning as six letterwinners who played in all 30 games a year ago are back.  Head coach Sharon Baldwin-Tener will build around junior guard Kendra Long and seniors Cody Paulk and Tiffany Anderson. Long is the team’s top returning scorer after averaging 10.5 points per outing. She also is the first Panther in GSU history to have back-to-back 50 plus three-point seasons. Paulk is one of the league’s top defenders around the basket after ranking second in the CAA with 1.9 blocks per game and just needs 33 more blocks for the GSU school record (166), which would also put her in the CAA top 10.  Georgia State will open the season with a pair of road contests including its second outing at Florida, which finished at 36 in the RPI rankings last year. The Panthers will once again host a pair of home tournaments during the non-conference schedule.
