R.J. Hunter scored 20 points in the loss, two days after his game-winning three-point shot and his father's reaction to it created one of the most memorable moments of the tournament so far.

After the Panthers were eliminated, Ron Hunter said the past week has been the "greatest week of my life" and the "best time of my life as a father."

"I don't want these kids to be sad," he said.
