Earlier now we brought you the exhilarating exploits of Paul Hiepler, a deep reserve who expended Abilene Christian’s upset victory in the very first round of the NCAA Event shouting and making the biggest faces you have at any time viewed. In the seconds after the 14-seed Wildcats vanquished the No. 3 Texas Longhorns, he mercilessly flipped the upside-down horns.
He’s not the only character on this group worth discovering about, though. Head mentor Joe Golding took in excess of the program a decade back as it was set to return to the Division I stage, saw it through some extremely lean several years (he was 71-105 by means of 6 seasons in advance of last but not least ending .500 in his seventh period), and it appears to be, also realized some dance moves alongside the way.

(Our male Hiepler, No. 33, is emotion this, far too!)
It’s not distinct when this online video was taken. I really don’t feel the dance in fact happened previous night, considering that Abilene Christian wore purple jerseys in its earn in excess of Texas. But it is worthy of sharing. (Also, let us don’t forget the time Joe Golding coached with a gap in his pants. This dude is unencumbered by society’s anticipations. He’ll dance with abandon. He’ll don split trousers. He’ll get tournament video games.)
This all have to be extremely gratifying for Golding, who performed at Abilene Christian in the mid 1990s, then worked his way up the coaching ladder with higher school and JUCO stints.
Also, can I just place out that the participant pictured with Golding in the photograph at the leading of this tale is named Joe Pleasant. He experienced a charming 11 details, tied for a team higher, including these two cost-free throws:
Joe Pleasant stepped to the stripe a 59% absolutely free throw shooter with his school’s 1st at any time NCAA Event victory on the line.
He sank them both of those. pic.twitter.com/xM15FiiX3y
