Nevada coach Eric Musselman rips off shirt in postgame celebration after beating Cincinnati

Nevada completed the impossible on Sunday afternoon, having rallied from a 22-point hole with 11 minutes left to beat Cincinnati 75-73 in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

So what do you do when you go on a 32-8 run, pulling off an upset win to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament?

You take your shirt off, of course.

And that includes coach Eric Musselman.

Musselman ran into the locker room having just stripped off his shirt into a jumping huddle with his team, a celebration fitting of a team that just advanced to the Sweet 16 after being written off midway through the second half.
