An overzealous college basketball fan could not contain his excitement and stormed the court when his team, the Detroit Mercy Titans, ended their winless season and a 27-game losing streak on Wednesday night. 

The only problem was no one else seemed to join him.

“It feels good. We’ve been kind of struggling lately,” senior Jayden Stone, who scored a team-high 25 points, said after the game. 

“We’ve just been remaining humble and just staying the course, staying faithful, and I’m just grateful to God for the win and the boys – they played great tonight.”

In a video shared by the team on social media, sophomore Marcus Tankersley dribbled the ball to run out the clock for the Titans’ first win of the season. The lone fan then walks out on the court, arms raised.
