Georgia State enters its first-round contest with Houston on Friday as 11.5-point underdogs at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla. But Panthers' head coach Ron Hunter doesn't appear to be worried about his upcoming matchup with the Cougars. 

Hunter spent part of his teams' shootaround in Tulsa out of bounds below the baseline and directed the Georgia State band before he entered the Panthers' layup line. The nerves of March don't seem to apply to Hunter.

Thursday didn't mark Hunter's first viral moment with the Panthers. He tore his achilles celebrating Georgia State's Sun Belt championship in March 2015, then fell out of his courtside chair as his son R.J. Hunter canned a game-winning three to beat Baylor in the 2015 NCAA tournament. 

Hunter is 171–94 in eight seasons with the Panthers. Georgia State has reached the NCAA tournament in three of the last five years
