    ATLANTA -- Jihad Ali scored 17 points and Georgia State played outstanding defense to defeat William & Mary 66-34 on Saturday in the teams' Colonial Athletic Association opener.

    The Panthers (6-3) have won six in a row, their longest winning streak since a seven-game streak in the 2003-04 season. They've held their opponents to an average of 47 points during the streak.

    The 34 points by the Tribe (1-8) are the second fewest ever by a Georgia State opponent, just one point more than the school record of 33 points allowed against Howard in 2009-10.

    The Panthers held William and Mary to just 25.5 percent (12 of 47) shooting from the field, and the Tribe had more turnovers (18) than field goals (12).

    James Fields added 12 points and Eric Buckner 11 for Georgia State.

    Brandon Britt's eight points were the most for William & Mary.
