By Marc Lawrence, Playbooksports.com — From this week’s PLAYBOOK Basketball Newsletter: When Georgia state fell to Appalachian State in the championship game of the Sun Belt tourney as 7-point favorites last season, the plug was immediately pulled on a terrific 16-6 season.

The host team in this series is 10-3 ATS, with Georgia State going 5-0 ATS in its last five games as the host.
