After getting ejected from Monday’s NCAA tournament game against Coastal Carolina, NC State coach Elliott Avent really wanted to make sure he got his money’s worth. 

So when an umpire stepped in to defuse the situation, Avent executed a textbook inside spin move to continue his argument. He looked like J.J. Watt. 

Meltdown artist Joe Mikulik turned in another fine performance​

Let’s take a look at that again. 


​The Wolfpack went on to win the game 8–1, so Avent’s display of emotion clearly inspired the team, or something.
