Head coach Ron Hunter thought he was Professor X until his son knocked down a game winning three to move on to the next round.
It only has been day 1 and the madness have already begun. In one of the most exciting, nail biting games of this year’s NCAA Men’s Tournament, a game winning shot introduces the basketball world to the sports representation of “TURN DOWN FOR WHAT”. During the closing seconds of a 2nd round match up between #14 seed Georgia State Panthers and #3 Baylor Bears, the unexpected happened. To cap off a incredible 13-0 comeback, R.J Hunter was able to knock down a long range three with 2.5 seconds that had the arena jumping and twitter going bananas. The shot was so exhilarating and shocking that his dad, head coach Ron Hunter fell off his stool to celebrate in which the moment had America laughing in stitches. In case you wondering why did the head coach had to coach a crucial 2nd round NCAA Tournament game sitting down?, it’s because coach Hunter injured himself by tearing his Achillies while celebrating with the team and student body after their conference tournament championship clinching victory. If you missed out on the shot that ruined almost 99.4% of people’s brackets, check out the clip below. Coach Hunter, take as much pain killers and get as much rest as possible. Your team needs you to help them dance their way to a sweet 16 appearance.
Here’s a bonus clip of coach Hunter flexing on the naysayers, haters and doubters as he even called out President Obama for not choosing his team as one of the upset special.
Day 1 of March Madness has been a memorable one. Upset city is alive and well.
