After his late three-pointer gave Georgia State an upset victory over Baylor, R.J. Hunter joked that his dad needed a back on his chair so that he wouldn't fall out of it celebrating next time.
One of the 2015 NCAA tournament's early signature moments was Georgia State guard R.J. Hunter's late three-pointer to give the 14th seeded Panthers an upset victory over No. 3 seed Baylor. The shot caused Hunter's father, Georgia State coach Ron Hunter, to fall out of his chair near the bench in celebration.
After the game, the younger Hunter joked that his dad might need some alterations to his chair before the next game.
'We gotta get a back for my dad's chair!'
The coach is currently dealing with a torn Achilles, which he suffered on Sunday while celebrating his team's Sun Belt title. He didn't appear to sustain any additional injuries during his Thursday celebration.
"I knew he wasn't going to miss that shot," Ron Hunter said of his son. "He's always dreamed about making that last shot."
