From tearing his Achilles (with a smile) while celebrating his team's Sun Belt tournament title to the rolling chair he fell off of after his son's game winner against third-seeded Baylor to his endlessly entertaining off-day quotes, Georgia State coach Ron Hunter has stolen our hearts over the past week.

But after Saturday's 75-67 loss to Xavier, Hunter was heartbroken and let the tears flow in the postgame news conference.

The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. It's why we love sports.
