Georgia State hoops up for ESPY Award

Georgia State’s upset of Baylor in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament has been included in the ESPY awards for Best Upset.

The Panthers defeated No. 3-seed Baylor 57-56 when R.J. Hunter hit a 30-foot 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds remaining in the tournament’s second round.

As the shot fell, coach Ron Hunter fell off the stool he was using after suffering a torn Achilles while celebrating the Sun Belt tournament championship.

Other nominations in the Best Upset category are Ole Miss’ defeat of Alabama in football and Kansas City winning the American League pennant.

The ESPYs will be televised on July 15.
