Video: Georgia State's Ron Hunter Broke His Cast Celebrating His Son's 3-Pointer vs. Baylor

Ron Hunter does interview after NCAA Tournament game.

Ron Hunter's celebratory fall out of his chair proved to be a somewhat costly one - it was clearly worth it, though. 

On Thursday, the Georgia State coach dropped to the floor after his son, R.J. Hunter, hit a game-winning 3-pointer against Baylor in the NCAA Tournament's Second Round. 

Ron Hunter, who was sitting on a rolling chair because he tore his Achilles celebrating his team's NCAA Tournament berth, cracked his cast as he fell to the ground. A doctor is on his way to Jacksonville to re-cast the foot. Ron Hunter told CBS Sports' Jamie Erdahl about the situation Friday morning.

Georgia State is set to face Baylor on Saturday at 6:10 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on TNT.
