Continuing a new blog feature to our site, here is today’s Men’s Basketball Gameday Nugget. For each game during the regular season (and hopefully postseason), I will try to post something that most fans would not know. Some will be more complex than others, but hopefully it will be something that if you are standing around the water cooler the next day would impress your friends.
So as the Panthers continue the NIT Season Tipoff with Canisius on Monday night in Elon, N.C., here is your nugget:
Monday’s match-up will pair Georgia State’s Ron and R.J. Hunter against Canisius’ Jim and Billy Baron. R.J. Hunter, a Freshman All-American last year who is averaging 18.0 points and 5.5 rebounds per game will go against Billy Baron, a 6-2 senior guard who is averaging 22.0 points and 4.0 rebounds per game.
The father-son combo is one of five pairs at the NCAA Division I level this season.
Make sure to check back Tuesday as the Panthers continue play in the NIT Season Tip-off, face Elon.
