One UC Irvine bench player was pretty excited his team briefly led Louisville

Friday March 20th, 2015


No one was more excited UC Irvine took the lead against Louisville than this dude on the Anteaters' bench. 

Mamadou N'Diaye, Irvine's enormous center, dunked the ball and politely placed it on the ground. When the camera cut to the bench, it showed Lithuanian guard Haroldas Saprykinas going completely insane.

The Anteaters' joy was short-lived, though. Louisville managed to hang on for a 57-55 win.
