Minnesota Basketball Coach Tubby Smith Dances to Ke$ha After Tremendous Win

You might not be a big fan of Ke$ha, but hopefully you are a fan of things that are awesome. Tubby Smith dancing after his Minnesota Gophers' remarkable 58-53 overtime win over No. 19 Wisconsin on Thursday night certainly qualifies.

That's all you need to know to understand this video. The head coach and his players hit the locker room and were feeling pretty good. 

OK, they were euphoric. 

Let's be adults here: Sometimes, the only thing to do when you are hit with sudden exuberance is bust out the dancing shoes and drop some monster moves. 

Seeing as how Smith was without a proper dance floor, he improvised like a pro. Ke$ha's "Die Young" comes on, and the young men go wild. That's when Smith does a dance I have only seen at weddings when uncles have had one too many trips to the open bar. 

There is something so wonderful about seeing amateur athletes like college basketball players enjoy a big win as a reward for their tireless efforts. 

However, watching their coach bust out a dandy of a dance may win the day as far as postgame celebrations are concerned.
