Who wouldn’t have done the same thing?
The closest fan to the ball, cheerleader Jordan Alcazar, just couldn’t contain himself after Kyle Kuric’s latest dunk to all but seal the win for the University of Louisville over Pittsburgh in the classic at the KFC Yum! Center.
As far as Alcazar knew, as far as most fans knew, the game was over. Who was watching the clock anyway beside the nitpickers. The kid got emotional, the ball practically falling in his lap, slapping it high in the air.
Yes, his action could have cost U of L a win with a miraculous shot but it was a long shot, would have been a very long shot. That wasn’t going to happen Sunday. It was Louisville’s day, nothing was going to change that.
Great to see that display of emotion from a cheerleader, especially from a cheerleader. Sometimes one wonders whether cheerleaders pay attention to the score. Jordan Alcazar was obviously into the game.
He just celebrated half a second too early. Some folks, as the guy who subtitled this video, just don’t get it.
