ATLANTA (AP) Manny Atkins scored 21 points and Rasheed Richardson scored all 12 of his in the second half as Georgia State rallied for a 74-58 victory over William & Mary on Wednesday night in Colonial Athletic Association play.
The Panthers (7-11, 2-3), who had lost seven of their past eight games, trailed 33-25 before getting a 3-pointer from Kevin Shaw just before the halftime buzzer.
Two baskets by Atkins and a 3-pointer by Richardson lifted Georgia State into a 35-35 tie early in the second half. The Panthers took the lead for good, 48-43, with an 8-0 run that included two baskets by Richardson.
Tim Rusthoven had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Tribe (7-9, 1-4), who have lost six straight.
Georgia State's Ron Hunter coached barefoot, the sixth straight season he's done so in a game in support of Samaritan's Feet, an organization that provides shoes for underprivileged children.
The beginning of Wednesday's clash with the Maple Leafs was not pretty for the Capitals.
A pair of goals by Toronto gave them an early lead midway through the first period. But a snipe by Jakub Vrana towards the end of the first frame cut the deficit in half entering the first intermission.
But during the second period, all of a sudden, a switch flipped for the Capitals attack. Washington found the back of the net three times in under 90 seconds, turning a one-goal deficit into a two-goal lead.
The first came from Evgeny Kuznetsov, who finished with a beautiful move to sneak the puck past Maple Leafs' goalie Michael Hutchinson's glove.
Just 11 seconds later, Nicklas Backstrom found the back of the net on a beautiful wrister from T.J. Oshie to put the Capitals ahead.
To complete the trifecta, John Carlson's one-timer from Alex Ovechkin went right in between Hutchinson's legs, giving the Capitals a 4-2 lead.
At the end of the second period, the Capitals hold the same 4-2 lead. Just 20 minutes separate the Capitals from their fourth victory of the season.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens got some help in the secondary on Wednesday from someone not named Marcus Peters.
Cornerback Jimmy Smith returned to practice for the first time in over a month and took part in individual drills, coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday.
Smith suffered a Grade 2 MCL Sprain in the first week of the season against the Dolphins and hasn’t played or practiced since.
With the addition of Peters, the Ravens are hoping to be healthier than they’ve been in a while at the cornerback spot.
Smith was listed on the injury report as a limited participant and his status for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks is still unknown.
The Ravens rank 25th in the NFL against the pass this season and are looking to get the 30-year-old corner back in the fold.
