VIDEO: Northwestern Basketball Team Reacts To Making NCAA Tournament

The Northwestern basketball program is going dancing for the first time in school history.

As you would expect, that led to an incredible reaction from the players and Wildcats fan base who have long been waiting for this moment.

Immediately after it was announced Northwestern would be a part of the 2017 NCAA Tournament, cameras went for a live reaction. It was just as incredible as you would have hoped.

When you make school history. #SelectionSunday
