Georgia Southern basketball fans rekindle bizarre tradition after first made basket
That’s one way to start a game.
Georgia Southern basketball fans pulled a bizarre stunt Sunday afternoon, flooding the court with toilet paper rolls following the first basket of the night for the Eagles.
That poor janitor.
People say pro sports are better than college, but when have you ever seen something like this during an NBA game? pic.twitter.com/Q7ZVQLYdCt

Apparently, this is a tradition at Georgia Southern and has been happening for some time. This video below showed the tradition first appearing in 1988 when the Eagles beat the University of Arkansas Little Rock, 57-48.
Throwback Thursday! #HailSouthern
Bring your toilet paper to Hanner Fieldhouse tomorrow vs. Reinhardt! After our first made basket against Reinhardt tomorrow let it FLY!!! 🦅
