The NCAA Tournament was barely a few hours old when it churned out the first Must-Watch Vine of March Madness, 2015.

As captured by Lang Whitaker, who writes for NBA.com, you have to see this clip of Georgia State head coach Ron Hunter literally falling off his court-side stool after his son R.J., a junior guard, drained a way-downtown three-pointer to upset third-seeded Baylor 57-56.

Per our friends at the Huffington Post, we learn that the elder Hunter actually hurt his Achilles while celebrating Georgia State’s recent Sun Belt tournament title — the win that sent his team to the Big Dance.

We understand your excitement, Coach, but for goodness sake, be careful out there!
