Georgia State will hold Ron Hunter bobblehead night on Tuesday for the men’s basketball game against Middle Tennessee.
The first 500 people will receive a voucher to receive a free bobblehead of Hunter, who is posed on a chair with his leg in a cast. Hunter tore his Achilles tendon while celebrating winning the Sun Belt men’s basketball tournament in New Orleans.
He coached the team’s next game in the NCAA tournament from a rolling chair. The Panthers defeated Baylor on R.J. Hunter’s 30-foot 3-pointer with less than three seconds left.
The voucher can be exchanged at halftime of Tuesday’s game for the bobblehead doll.
The Panthers are 5-2 and will play at Southern Mississippi on Saturday.
