No. 14 seed Georgia State pulled off a 57-56 upset of No. 3 Baylor in the round of 64 on Thursday, thanks to a clutch three-pointer by junior R.J. Hunter right in front of his father, Georgia State head coach Ron Hunter.

With the Panthers down 12 points with just under three minutes to go, R.J. helped his team complete an incredible 13-0 comeback with 12 points of his own—including a deep three-pointer with 2.5 seconds to play.

The shot was good enough to knock Ron Hunter—who tore his Achilles last week—off his rolling stool. That created an awesome father-son story.

Georgia State will face the winner of Xavier-Ole Miss on Saturday.
