VIDEO/GIF: NC State fan in wheelchair celebrates win over Duke

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

Big games create big moments. And sometimes unpredictable ones, sights unseen to most eyes.

I'm talking about an NC State fan in a wheelchair getting hurriedly rolled onto the floor as time expired during the Wolfpack's 84-76 win over Duke, ending the Blue Devils' undefeated season. The video itself is a bit funny/bizarre, and also scary, seeing how the dude in the chair was ultimately knocked over by the oncoming horde. (Fear not: He's OK!)

But since it happened, we've discovered more about who was in the chair and who was doing the pushing.

Turns out the pusher is NC State's student body president, Andy Walsh. He confirmed as much on Twitter shortly after the on-court jubilee came to a close. He was pushing a guy named Will Privette, who's basically now the Lt. Dan of college basketball fans.

Then there's this, courtesy of our own Will Brinson -- unabashed Wolfpack homer/alumnus -- of which I'm awaiting a photo.

For posterity's sake, of course, your court-wheelin' GIF:
