Gardner-Webb provided one of the best celebration scenes during the NCAA Tournament reveal. Even though the moment was inevitable, the Runnin’ Bulldogs cheered when they saw their name on the screen.

It’s a great moment for the university in Boiling Springs, N.C., make its first NCAA appearance since joining Division I in 2000 after winning the Big South tournament as a No. 4 seed. It probably doesn’t matter to the program that they’ll be facing perhaps the most motivated top seed in NCAA Tournament history for a first-round game.

Virginia is the opponent, and the Cavaliers made history last year by becoming the first top seed to lose its first NCAA game when UMBC pulled off the shocker.
