In case you haven't heard, the Big Ten was bad but it switched now that Wisconsin, Michigan and Purdue all made the Sweet Sixteen while Michigan State still has a shot later today and Northwestern damn near took down No. 1 seed Gonzaga last night.
These facts aren't lost on Rutgers Basketball twitter which took to the internet to celebrate despite the Scarlet Knights posting a 3-15 record in regular season B1G play, going winless against tournament teams.

To their credit, Rutgers did post a signature non-win in a 61-54 overtime loss at home to Wisconsin way back in January.
As a Buckeye hoops fan it's difficult to bash Rutgers too much here (especially after they handled Ohio State in the B1G tourney) but when a tweet makes the SEC's conference pride blush, you gotta get in a few body shots.
The rest of Twitter certainly celebrated the magical tweet:
@RutgersMBB this is the Lavar Ball of big ten basketball tweets
