    NEW ORLEANS -- Ryan Harrow scored 20 points and R.J. Hunter had 16 as top-seeded Georgia State eased to a 72-45 win over fourth-seeded Arkansas State in the semifinals of the Sun Belt Conference tournament on Saturday.

    Georgia State broke the game open with a 16-5 second-half run, led by Manny Atkins' six points. Arkansas State, coming off a four overtime win on Friday, was held without a field goal for over 9 minutes during Georgia State's run.

    Atkins finished with 12 points for Georgia State (25-7). Harrow was 9 of 14 from the field and Hunter made three 3-pointers.

    Kendrick Washington led Arkansas State (19-13) with 12 points and 12 rebounds.

    Harrow scored 14 first-half points, including back-to-back 3-pointers capping a 12-3 Georgia State run and the Panthers led 32-24 at the break.

    Georgia State has now won eight games in a row and 22 of its last 23.
