How does one react after a stunning Round of 64 upset against Duke?
That Mercer’s Kevin Canevari doing the Nae Nae after the 14-seed pulled off the 76-68 win against the Blue Devils, the 3 seed in the Midwest Region.
It was a dance Canevari’s coach, Bob Hoffman, would undoubtedly embrace.
“You’re never too old to celebrate,” he told Rachel Nichols on CBS after the game. “Unbelievable what theses dudes believe about each other and they can accomplish. That’s the kind of heart it takes, and it’s amazing what they’ve done the last three years, believing at the highest level that they can accomplish what they did today.”
It was the first NCAA tournament win in Mercer history.
