Georgia State coach breaks cast in fall

Georgia State coach Ron Hunter doesn’t mind getting a new cast. But don’t even think about swapping out his chair.

Hunter cracked the cast on his left leg during his now-famous fall that followed his son’s game-winning shot against Baylor on Thursday.

Hunter made headlines and highlights across the country when he fell off his rolling stool while celebrating R.J. Hunter’s NBA-range 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds remaining. It turned out to be the difference in a 57-56 victory. Associated Press
