Hampton's Major League celebration is the best tourney moment so far

Wednesday March 18th, 2015


The NCAA tournament isn't even a day old and the Hampton Pirates are already a fan favorite.

Hampton went on to beat Manhattan and advance to the Round of 64.

Don't grow too attached to the Pirates, though. They have to face Kentucky in their next game.
