Photo: Governor Chris Christie Was In Notre Dame's Locker Room After Irish's Big Win

Notre Dame battled Stephen F. Austin until the final whistle blew Sunday afternoon, knocking the Lumberjacks out of the NCAA Tournament on a buzzer-beater tip-in with 1.5 seconds left on the clock, 76-75, to earn a spot in the Sweet 16.

Such an exciting victory was cause for celebration, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, whose daughter is a student manager for Notre Dame, even made his way into the locker room following the big win. USA TODAY's Nicole Auerbach captured this photo and shared it to Twitter.
