ANIMATED: Buzz Williams Hits Half-Court Shot, Celebrates With Awkward Swimming

Buzz Williams probably doesn't have the name recognition of the majority of the coaches left in the NCAA Tournament, but the head coach of the Marquette Golden Eagles is one of the easiest to root for whenever his team is playing.

Typically that opinion stems from the fact that he's so passionate and often doesn't have a voice whenever he's interviewed following a big game. But sometimes he does other things that are pretty fun.

During Thursday night's broadcast of the game between Marquette and the Florida Gators, the television crew showed video of Williams hitting a half-court shot during a recent Golden Eagles practice. While it's exciting in its own right whenever a coach is able to do something his players struggle with, the celebration is what sent things over the top.

It isn't exactly clear, but it seems Williams gets into his best diving stance and then takes a swim following the big shot. Even if that's not what it is, it's still awesome.

Good on ya, Buzz.
