GIFs: The Best UNC Locker Room Celebrations after Slaying No. 1 Spartans
The unranked, 10.5-point underdog North Carolina knocked off No. 1 Michigan State in East Lansing last night in a dominant 14-point win, giving the relatively inexperienced Tar Heels a whole lot to celebrate. And celebrate they did, in completely unabashed, borderline hysterical fashion. The full video is worth a watch before getting to the GIFs in which we parse out the most glorious moments from the locker room revelry.
Junior forward Jackson Simmons
Simmons delivers not one but two checks to the shoulder of the man with the nice argyle sweater.
Here’s the jump-checking team manager
Probably where Simmons got the idea.
Sophomore forward Joel James
James pauses with his mouth agape in what looks like a possessed-Hulk dance.
The guy on in the top right bouncing and clapping
The one by the Coke cup. He’s so happy, I love it. His bottom half is obscured so I can only assume he moves like a South Park character.
Junior forward James Michael McAdoo
When you can’t convey your joy with a shout, show it with a tongue wave.
Head coach Roy Williams
Williams bops in dramatically then gets lost in the sea of his 6-footers.
No celebration is complete without an awkward River Dance.
