Unfortunately, Georgia State’s underdog team trailed Baylor by 12 points with less than three minutes left to play. But then a Georgia State player named R.J. Hunter scored nine straight points. One of his teammates made a free throw. And with three seconds left, R.J. Hunter made a long, long, long, mythically long three-pointer to give Georgia State an upset, comeback victory. But that's not even the best part. The best part is: Ron Hunter is R.J. Hunter’s father! R.J. Hunter is Ron Hunter’s son!
