Georgia State head coach Ron Hunter and son R.J. enjoyed Thursday evening being a part of the NCAA tournament broadcast on TBS. Coach Hunter spent Thursday evening and will do the same on Friday evening serving as a guest analyst for Sweet 16 games being played on TBS.
R.J. spent the first segment of Thursday night’s production on-set talking about Georgia State’s magical run in the NCAA tournament last week, including his 30-foot 3-pointer with 2.6 seconds remaining to cap an incredible comeback against No. 3-seed Baylor.
Following his stint on-set, R.J. enjoyed a tour of the studio, including a trip to the graphics room which had some fun with the junior while he was on-set (apparently they think R.J. looks like Prince).
Coach Hunter will be back on-set Friday evening beginning at 6 p.m. for the TBS pregame show before two more games on TBS. Hunter will also appear at halftime and post-game of each of the two games.
