By far one of the best parts of watching all the teams advance throughout the NCAA tournament has been seeing the locker room reactions of the winning teams.
From Gatorade bathes to coaches ripping off their shirts to dance offs, it’s hard not to feel joy watching these teams celebrate.
Enter Michigan coach John Beilein, who took the dance party celebration to the next level after the Wolverines defeated Florida State to punch their ticket to the Final Four. The party didn’t stop for the team in the locker room. No way. Beilein kept it going on the team bus, where he was dancing up and down the aisle with his players.
OK, so it’s not exactly the safest celebration — the driver must be a total pro to stay focused with all the flashlights going off on the bus — and the moves aren’t really anything to write home about, but Beilein gets an A+ for enthusiasm and letting himself go.
After fighting off a Florida State team that just wouldn’t go away for a 58-54 victory, this Wolverines team deserves a minute to relax and unwind. It’s also Beilein’s second-ever trip to the Final Four and first since the 2013 Michigan team led by Trey Burke.
Keep dancing, coach. You’ve earned it.
