Georgia Southern guard Jelani Hewitt celebrates after hitting a 3-point shot to send Thursday's game against Furman into overtime at Hanner Fieldhouse Thursday.
In what was Furman’s last trip to Hanner Fieldhouse for a Southern Conference matchup, Georgia Southern gave the Paladins a game to remember. Jelani Hewitt drilled a 3-pointer to tie the game in regulation, and Angel Matias hit his second key 3 in overtime to help the Eagles to an 88-81 overtime win on Thursday. Matias’ wide open 3 — his second of the game and only his third of the season — to put GSU up 77-74 in overtime.
