Upset victories in college basketball are usually followed by the winning team’s fans flooding onto the court in celebration.

Not so Tuesday night at Allstate Arena, where 8-14 DePaul shocked No. 11 Providence with a 77-70 win.

Apparently disappointed that the students didn’t come to them, DePaul players decided to take matters into their own hands.

But really, who can blame these guys for wanting to celebrate? After all, the Blue Demons had lost 39 straight games to top-15 opponents, according to ESPN.
