Georgia State coach Ron Hunter tears achilles celebrating win (Video)
Georgia State punched its ticket to the NCAA Tournament with a win over Georgia Southern in the Sun Belt Championship on Sunday, but the team may be taking instruction from a coach on crutches during the Big Dance.
Georgia State coach Ron Hunter was celebrating his team’s 38-36 win (yeah, you read that right) when he appeared to suffer a knee injury. He was helped off the floor by two Panthers staffers.
As it turns out, Hunter tore his achilles while embracing his son, Georgia State star RJ Hunter.

We have shown you plenty of unfortunate celebration injuries over the years here at LBS, but this has to be one of the worst. Hunter is likely going to be in a lot of pain while trying to prepare his team for the NCAA Tourney.
