The No. 15 Blanche Ely (Pompano Beach, Fla.) boys basketball team defeated Orlando Evans last weekend to capture its second consecutive Class 7A state title. How did the Tigers celebrate?

“He congratulated us after the game and then we told him, ‘Hey, you have to do the Harlem Shake with us,'” Blanche Ely guard Dallas Cameron told the Miami Herald. “He said OK and then started busting some moves. I was standing right next to the camera man, just dying laughing.”
O’Neal, who took in the championship game from a courtside seat, told Cameron that he’d mention Ely’s title during tonight’s TNT NBA doubleheader. Be listening for that.
Thanks to Prep Rally for the heads up.
