LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - D’Marcus Simonds and Isaiah Williams both scored 24 points and each made nine field goals to lead hot-shooting Georgia State past Louisiana-Lafayette 101-86 on Monday night.

Simonds was 9-for-14 shooting, Williams was 9 for 16, and Georgia State (10-7, 3-2 Sun Belt) shot 62 percent from the field (36 for 58) including 10 for 19 from 3-point range.
