If you have watch Tubby Smith dance passionately on your bucket list, now’s your chance to cross it off. As the unranked Minnesota Golden Gophers basketball team beat the #20 Wisconsin Badgers in over time 58-53 in OT (yes, even in overtime, some Big Ten scores are still in the 50s) they celebrated in the locker room. And the Gophers basketball victory dance looks like it was blatantly ripped off from the Badgers victory dance after they defeated the #3 Michigan Wolverines on a buzzer-beater.
Watch both and judge for yourself. Welcome to “Dancing with the Big Ten basketball Stars.” Big Ten hoops is crazy this year, with upsets galore and ranked teams beating up on each other.
The Gophers basketball program really needed this win for their NCAA Tournament resume, as they fallen below .500 in conference play.
And here’s Wisco’s dance party following the big win over Michigan. Notice the similarities?
