This is How All March Madness Victories Should Be Celebrated

Some athletes celebrate a major victory with a Gatorade shower. Others with some cheers and high-fives. But after Mercer upset third-seed Duke in the second round of March Madness, player Kevin Canevari busted out some unexpected (and impressive) dance moves.


The Mercer University senior broke out into the popular dance the "Nae Nae" (the spring 2014 version of the "Dougie" or the "Harlem Shake"), on March 21 after his team beat the March Madness favorite (and third-seed) team Duke. 

The small university (about 4,500 undergrads in Macon, Ga.) was only ranked as a 14 seed, so the 78-71 win was a major upset for Duke, and pretty much anyone who put money on their bracket. But for Kevin Canevari, it was a chance to show off that he's not just a great basketball player -- he can dance, too. 

We're celebrating you, Kevin! You and your Mercer Bears teammates prove that anything is possible with some hard work and determination. Kevin also shows us that celebrating life's victories doesn't have to be super serious -- sometimes, you just gotta dance.
