Georgia State Player's Buzzer Beater in NCAA Tournament Was So Incredible, It Literally Knocked His Coach Out of His Chair

That's why they call it March Madness. Wow.

Down 56-54 with just 4 seconds remaining in the game, Georgia State completed a stunning comeback victory against Baylor on Thursday with a very deep three-point buzzer beater.

The shot, made by Georgia State’s R.J. Hunter, was so incredible, it actually made head coach Ron Hunter — who happens to be the player’s father — fall right out of his chair.

You can understand why he got so excited -- it's March Madness. The shot completed an amazing 13-0 run at the end of the game, resulting in his team knocking off the third-seeded Baylor Bears and advancing in the NCAA Tournament.

After the game, Ron Hunter also called out President Barack Obama for counting his team out and picking Baylor to beat them in his March Madness bracket.

"I hope you make better decisions in that presidency than you did about Georgia State," the coach joked.

As Bleacher Report notes, "If Georgia State can reel off five more victories, Hunter will be able to give President Obama a message in person."
