Arkansas-Little Rock put together a huge upset win over Purdue Thursday evening in a double-overtime thriller. Needless to say, the No. 12 Trojans were overjoyed after beating the No. 5-seeded Boilermakers, and they celebrated the victory in rare fashion.
While dabbing is the trendy thing to do these days, the Trojans put together a mini mosh pit session in the locker room following their 85-83 win.

It was a pretty emotional setting there in the locker room, and rightly so.
Not many would have guessed this squad would come away with the upset, but it wasn’t even the first big one of the day. A bit earlier, Ivy League school Yale took down Baylor in another No. 12 vs. No. 5 matchup.
Senior guard Josh Hagins led all scorers Thursday with 31 points as he knocked down big shot after big shot to help the Trojans take down the highly favored Boilermakers.
Next up are the high-scoring Iowa State Cyclones (No. 4), who took down Iona by 13 points in a comfortable 94-81 victory.
