Selection Sunday is usually rife with drama and this year’s version certainly didn’t disappoint. We witnessed shock, jubilation and everything in between thanks to more cameras in more places than ever before and here are some of the best reactions as the NCAA Tournament field was finally revealed.

1. UC Irvine – 13 seed

Fans and players alike are excited to see the UC Irvine Anteaters make their first ever NCAA Tournament even if they will have the tough task of playing against Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals.

Some fans are starting to dream big already. 

2. Wyoming – 12 seed

The sheer excitement on the faces of the Cowboys’ players makes this worth watching a few times. 

3. Wisconsin – 1 seed

First of all, Wisconsin earn bonus points for choreography. Plus, the fact that they could even stand up out of their chairs after that thriller against Michigan State is impressive. I can’t be the only one wondering what Big Ten Player of the Year Frank Kaminsky was doing to that poor trophy.

4. LSU – 9 seed

Half of LSU’s team seem like they’re ready to fall asleep… that is until they were announced as the No. 9 seed in this years NCAA Tournament, at which point the Tigers went wild.

5. Xavier – 6 seed

Xavier’s party featured big kids and little kids alike celebrating, which made for a fun scene all around.

These celebrations are just the beginning and as the games get underway this week we’re looking forward to seeing many more of them.
