Northwestern beat Vanderbilt on Thursday in the first NCAA Tournament game in program history.

While the Wildcats needed the help of Vanderbilt and their unfortunate gaffe in the final seconds, a win is a win and Northwestern was ready to celebrate.

Immediately following the game, the players lay in wait in the locker room as head coach Chris Collins conducted interviews on the court. Once he returned to the locker room, the players pounced and showered him with water and the celebration was on.
