WATCH: A Big Upset Leads To Some Awesome Dancing

How big an upset was No. 14 Mercer's victory over No. 3 Duke today?

Mark caught us up on the actual news.

Here is video that simply shows you:

Update at 7:22 p.m. ET. The 'NaeNae':

For those of us, who are culturally clueless, The New York Times explains the dance:

"For the last couple of months, the Nae Nae has become a near universally recognized language of celebration. The dance comes along with a sprightly song, 'Drop That #NaeNae,' by the young Atlanta-based rap crew We Are Toonz, whose members — Bear, Callamar, K. B., Crash Bandit, Levi – shimmy their way through the song's video, rewriting youth culture on the fly.

"[Kevin] Canevari is not the first to drop that Nae Nae in exultant joy – the Washington Wizards' John Wall, longtime friend to hip-hop dance crazes, did his version after winning the dunk contest at All-Star weekend last month; the Houston Rockets' Dwight Howard was filmed doing it in a video with the group. It was used, fleetingly, in the dance medley during Pharrell's performance of 'Happy' at the Oscars, and Ryan Seacrest recently talked about it on 'American Idol.'"
