Smith celebrates Minnesota’s win with dance
by Tim McGarry, USA TODAY Sports
Tubby Smith dancing to Ke$ha’s “Die Young” is every bit as great as you would expect.
Minnesota capped off a 58-53 overtime win over No. 19 Wisconsin Thursday night. The Gophers, who had dropped six of their last eight, desperately needed the win over the rival Badgers.
Following the win, Tubby Smith entered the locker room, gave a short speech and then broke it down Ke$ha’s “Die Young.”
It was perfect.
For what it’s worth, Wisconsin celebrated a big win over Michigan earlier this week by dancing to the same song.
Asked whether the Gophers made the video in response to the Badgers, senior Trevor Mbakwe told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, “No comment.”
