If there is one thing we love about March Madness almost as much as the upsets, it’s the storylines.
Northwestern is already a great one, as the Wildcats are set to make the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history. What could possibly make this better?
How about split-screen shots of Julia Louis-Dreyfus watching her son play for a March darling?
On Thursday, Charlie Hall — the basketball-playing son of Louis-Dreyfus and actor/writer/director Brad Hall — saw the floor near the end of the Wildcats’ 83-61 blowout of Rutgers at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.
He even grabbed a rebound. It was real, and it was spectacular. (Just getting you ready for all the “Seinfeld” jokes coming in the next week.)
And of course, ESPN had a camera on Louis-Dreyfus from the second Hall went to the scorer’s table to check in. She reacted just as you would expect any mother of a walk-on playing for her alma mater would.
You earned this @NUMensBball‘s Charlie Hall.
