UAB upset Iowa State 60-59 as the round of 64 kicked off Thursday. The Blazers squeaked by the Cyclones with a smothering defense and two clutch jumpers down the stretch. 

We don't see a 14-seed upset a 3-seed all the time. Those occasions deserve to be celebrated. They deserve to be re-lived.

They deserve to be immortalized. 

And that's why we honor what happened the last time we saw a 14-3 upset, when Mercer guard Kevin Canevari hit this vicious Nae Nae after a win over Duke last year:

His form? Exquisite. The timing? Impeccable. 

Mercer would bow out of the tournament in the next round. But that Nae Nae—that Nae Nae will live on forever.
