SALT LAKE CITY (WFLA) — A young Northwestern fan’s meltdown was captured on film during the second half of the Northwestern-Gonzaga game on Saturday, and in a matter of seconds, it went viral.
The kid, who is reportedly the son of Northwestern athletic director Jim Phillips can be seen hysterically sobbing after a foul was called on the Wildcats and naturally, Twitter took notice.
The poor kid joins the ranks of other March Madness viral sensations like Villanova’s crying piccolo girl, who stole the show last year.
The Northwestern Wilcats lost to top-seeded Gonzaga 79-73. It was the Wildcats’ first appearance in the NCAA tournament.
