Nebraska basketball picked up a 66-57 home win over Indiana on Tuesday night. The victory was crucial for the Huskers’ chances at receiving an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament, and it gave the team 21 wins for the season.
That’s great and all for Tim Miles’ program, but did you see the bench?
Nebraska’s bench had another memorable night of celebrations. The Huskers reserves broke out multiple acts after big plays.
They had a professional wrestling bit featuring an RKO. They got in the Olympic spirit with the bobsled. They hit an imaginary weight room for a mid-game workout. And they finished off their celebrations by acting like slam dunk contest judges (giving Isaac Copeland perfect 10s on a putback slam).
Here’s some video of the celebrations Tuesday night:

The bench celebrations have been a recurring theme for Nebraska over the last few weeks. There’s been plenty to be happy about in Lincoln, too, as Nebraska is 9-2 in its last 11 games.
The Huskers bench also got some national attention Tuesday morning when ESPN’s Twitter account picked up video of the celebrations. The tweet had more than 12,000 re-tweets and nearly 30,000 favorites less than three hours after it was posted.
