Ron Hunter, the head coach of Georgia State, sustained a leg injury while jumping around celebrating his team’s 38-36 victory over Georgia Southern to win the Sun Belt tournament. According to Doug Roberson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Hunter tore his Achilles. One wonders if, before the game, he had been presented with the choice to win and have that happen, whether or not he would have accepted.
