Crying Northwestern kid becomes instant meme on Twitter

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC7) — The Gonzaga Bulldogs defeated the Northwestern Wildcats 79-73 in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Cameras focused in on this expressive Northwestern fan after an offensive foul, which later got updated to a flagrant foul.


Chicago Sun-Times reporter Steve Greenberg says the boy, 11-year-old John, is Northwestern Athletic Director Jim Phillips' son. This was Northwestern's first ever appearance in the NCAA tournament.
