Found March 24, 2013 on Larry Brown Sports:
Florida Gulf Coast went a little crazy in its celebration after beating San Diego State 81-71 Sunday to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. At this point, the grouchy types would tell them to “act like they’ve been there before.” But how can you blame them? They became the first 15 seed to ever reach the Sweet 16, and they celebrated accordingly. These dudes were running around the court tearing the roof off. They were chicken dancing, slapping hands with Reggie Miller, and popping water bottles like they were VIP members at the club. But nothing, and I mean nothing, can possibly top the awesome site of their team manager hopping around and busting moves like he was auditioning for a part in “Soul Train.” More awesome Florida Gulf Coast celebration GIFs and video below: And here’s video of the entire celebration: GIFs via The Big Lead, SB Nation; video via Diehard Sport Related posts: All the awesome aspects about Florida Gulf Coast’s upset win over Georgetown Amanda Mar...
