LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Rashaad Richardson drained a go-ahead 3-pointer with 3 seconds left to lift Georgia State over Liberty 67-66 Sunday in a nonconference game.

With the Panthers (4-4) down 65-61, Georgia State's RJ Hunter converted a three-point play, and then Liberty's Casey Roberts made 1 of 2 free throws to put the Flames up 66-64.
