After the basketball Buckeyes took down No. 3 ranked Purdue in West Lafayette, fans took to Twitter to showcase their excitement. We can’t blame them either. After Keita Bates-Diop tipped in the go-ahead bucket with 2 seconds left, you just knew Buckeye nation would be in full force celebration.
Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter we could find!

And damn does it feel good.
As soon as I stopped fucking with OSU basketball she glowed up on me and now I want her back. How do I approach?

Just take things slow and be there for them in the bad times.
