Players react to UK band member’s celebration

A star was born Thursday night when Hayden Hooper, a member of the UK band, flexed his muscles and dabbed following a Sacha Killeya-Jones dunk in the Cats’ first-round win over Davidson. Hayden became a March Madness celebrity as the internet shared and watched the clip over and over and over again.

But what did the UK players think of his celebration? I asked them during Friday’s interview session and most of them were pretty impressed with his moves.

See their reactions for yourself:

    I thought it was awesome … but PJ’s flex is better because of the face.

    And please don’t show, “Cat Bird Society scores big with “Game Over”” again … I know you get paid for showing this, but I bet it gives people nightmares. Uggh.

      In their defense, I didn’t know the kid was dapping. I though he had a pork job hidden under his arm.

    The best part about the band guy video isn’t even him. If you look real close behind him, you’ll see it.
