Georgia State loses on last-second shot a week after its game-winner shouldn't have counted
Troy's Varnado scored 32 points and sealed the game with a deep 3-pointer in the final seconds
Was it karma after the Panthers came away with a controversial victory last week?
Varnado, who had 29 points as his Trojans trailed 75-74, pulled off from just inside the logo and drained the shot to give him 32 points and his team the victory.
Just a week ago, Georgia State was on the dealers end of a buzzer-beating dagger. Georgia State's D'Marcus Simonds hit the winner in that instance vs. Louisiana-Monroe and later bragged about getting away with a travel and a push-off.
The officials from last week's game were suspended one game by the Sun Belt Conference for missing the obvious travel.
But Simonds could only watch Saturday as the worm turned for he and the Panthers. And this time there was no travel, no push off, but a serendipitous ending for Troy as it dealt Sun Belt favorite Georgia State its first conference loss of the season and improved to 10-8 overall on the year.
