The University of Illinois men’s basketball team had a great run in this year’s NCAA tournament, and even though UConn put a stop to it this weekend, it’s worth remembering that Coach Brad Underwood and the team know how to have fun and celebrate a win. After they beat Iowa State earlier in the week to advance to the next round against UConn, they celebrated their win with a memorable locker room celebration — the video and pictures got hundreds of supportive comments from fans and community members. Basketball might be over for the season, but hopefully the fun will be back next year.
