How does one react after a stunning Round of 64 upset against Duke?

Like this.

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.”

    You missed the “PRAISE THE LORD” that coach Hoffman shouted out at the end of that quote to Rachel Nichols!

      Fewer people care than you think.

        I don’t even care that much, just find it funny that the most exuberant part of the exuberant quote is left out cuz the author/blog/whatever find it offensive.
