Monmouth University, a small college in West Long Branch, New Jersey that has an enrollment of just under 7,000, has a basketball team that plays in the MAAC and whose bench has become a national sensation this season.
Now, thanks to the team itself, fans can learn how to be part of the bench mob too. Check it out!
I don’t know what’s better. The effort to make the instructional video look like a crappy VHS tape from the ’80s, or the genuine sincerity exhibited by the players participating.
Granted, Monmouth’s celebrations don’t usually go beyond “OH MY GOD CLUTCH BASKET EVERYBODY MAKE FACES AND JUMP UP AND DOWN,” but this team’s players clearly get along great on and off the court, and that’s only going to help Monmouth as the season progresses.
