Harrow averaged 17.9 while Manny Atkins and Devonta White averaged 14.5 and 11.5, respectively.

The four leading scorers each have at least 37 steals this season. Hunter leads the way with 62.

In November, Georgia State lost games to Vandebilt and Alabama.

The winner of the Clemson/Georgia state game will play the winner of Illinois and Boston University.
