After Georgia State's improbable come-from-behind victory over Baylor, coach Ron Hunter and his son R.J., the maker of the game-winning shot, gave an emotional interview on TBS. 

"I knew he was struggling," Ron said as he wiped his eyes. "I couldn't help him in that regard. But we tried to get movement. But I just told him to be patient. Be patient, because then great things will happen. And again, I love this guy, man. Really proud of him. That's a great win for our program."

R.J. thanked God and his teammates for helping him pull through. The senior guard made two three-pointers, two two-pointers and two clutch free-throws in the final three minutes to key his team's comeback.

Before then, he only had four points on two of eight shooting for the Panthers.
