After the game, Ron Hunter said the plan is to let his injured Achilles sit in the cast for 3 wks after the team returns, then talk surgery.
Ron Hunter visibly emotional as he wheels off the court following Georgia State’s loss. He’s an easy guy to like: http://t.co/4Qr5tZfGaM
Really sweet moment between RJ and Ron Hunter. Ron subbed out RJ with Xavier at the line up double digits, huge embrace as RJ walked off.
Xavier is 13-of-16 from the field in the 2nd half of this game. That’s tough to beat, even when you’re shooting 67%, yourself, which GSU is.
Oof, Myles Davis 3 gives Xavier a 10-point lead. Georgia State on the line shooting two with 1:16 to go. 67-57.
You’ll never believe this, but the Georgia State fans have disagreed with just about every call the referees have made against their team.
Markus Crider fouls out for Georgia State, which trails Xavier 64-55 with 2:24 to go. Panthers are gonna need some more magic.
After grabbing 6 boards in the 1st half, Matt Stainbrook doesn’t have a single rebound yet in the 2nd half. He’s been MIA the last 17 min.
They have been rowdy and into every second of play since they got here Thursday.
Xavier leads 57-53 with 5:05 to go. Georgia St. hasn’t led yet, but if they do ever pull ahead, the Panthers fans behind me might combust.
Xavier has made 8 of its last 9 shots, including two huge 3s on back to back possessions and leads by 8 with 7:45 to go.
UH OH... Come on out of that zone!
Apparently you really do have to cover R.J. Hunter from everywhere.
Xavier led GSU by 11 with 13:41 in 1st half, but GSU has made 6 of last 7 FGs to cut the lead to 19-17 with 7:49 left in half.
The man of the hour, Georgia State coach Ron Hunter is on the floor and ready to go: http://t.co/PuU77eD0mc

Arkansas escapes Wofford 56-53. Wofford had two decent looks at 3 on its last possession. Three tough games today for big favorites, though.
You can see why they call it March Madness.
Obviously still a long way to go, and I wouldn’t bet on Portis having less than 10 when it’s done, but Wofford's done a nice job on SEC POY.
Just two points on 1-of-3 shooting in the 2nd half for Bobby Portis. Only 8 for the game. He’s only been held under 10 twice this season.
Michael Qualls is dunking like the rim owes him money.
