STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) - Ike Smith scored 18 points and had the second of consecutive 3-pointers by Georgia State as the Eagles scored the last 17 points of the game to pull out a 67-64 win over Texas State in the Sun Belt Conference opener.. A three-point play by Eric Terry at the 2:43 mark and Nijal Pearson's 3-pointer at 1:57 had put the Bobcats on top 64-60. But Calvin Wishart quickly answered with a 3-pointer with 1 1/2 minutes left.
