I'm not posting this because my father is a Norfolk State Spartans alum and I think it's really cool that their 15-seeded men's team beat the Missouri Tigers in the NCAA men's tournament. I'm posting this because part of Jessica Lantz' point in her piece about why the Texas Longhorns shouldn't have made the women's tournament was that the committee should "give that bid to a more deserving smaller conference program" - at least they'd appreciate the experience as a privilege. The video above is exactly what she was talking about. Congrats to the Spartans and may March Madness provide many, many more moments like this one. For more on the game and videos of their celebration, visit SB Nation's storystream.
