Georgia State defeats James Madison 68-52

ATLANTA (AP) R.J. Hunter led four Georgia State players in double figures with 19 points as the Panthers defeated James Madison 68-52 to earn their first Colonial Athletic Association win Saturday.

Manny Atkins added 15 points, Devonta White 11 and James Vincent 10 for the Panthers (6-9, 1-1), who snapped a five-game losing streak and ended the Dukes' (7-7, 1-1) four-game winning streak.

Vincent added eight blocked shots, giving him 104 for his career, fifth most in Georgia State history.

Rayshawn Goins led James Madison with 19 points and a career-high 16 rebounds for his third double-double this year.

The Panthers shot 47.1 percent (24 of 51) from the field, including 47.6 percent (10 of 21) from 3-point range and had 14 assists to the Dukes' seven.

Georgia State ended the first half on a 13-4 run for a 38-25 halftime advantage after David Travers' buzz-beating trey.

Ravens cancel Saturday's open practice at M&T Bank Stadium

The Baltimore Ravens cancelled Saturday night's free open practice at M&T Bank Stadium due to a forecast that calls for heavy rain and inclement weather.

There is no official word from the team on whether this practice will be resheduled, but it seems like Sunday may be an option, even though there's rain in the forecast then too.

Ravens fans who were looking to see first-round draft pick and potential future starting quarterback Lamar Jackson will have to wait for another day. His presence at training camp, an inevitable competition with the incumbent, Joe Flacco, and potential two-quarterback packages involving both of them are set to be some of the biggest storylines of Ravens camp this summer.

As a Heisman Trophy winner, Jackson was one of the most dynamic players in college football during his time at Louisville. If he can replicate that kind of performance in the NFL, he will be at plenty more training camp sessions for Ravens fans to watch.

Saturday's Nationals game rained out, to be postponed

Following a dicey matchup between the Nats and Braves Friday night which featured a heated argument between Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg, the Nationals are getting a much-needed opportunity to regroup.

The Washington Nationals' official Twitter account announced that Saturday evening's matchup will be postponed due to inclement weather just after 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

The Nationals had planned to host "JMU Night" at the ballpark as a part of their "College Day" series, and due to more forecasted inclement weather Sunday, the Nationals decided to call the game off sooner rather than later.

The Nationals have yet to announce when the game will be made up.

If Sunday's game is played as scheduled, Max Scherzer will start.

This post will be updated when more information regarding a makeup date has been announced.
