Elaine is busting out the moves again, but this time with more than good reason.

Seinfeld and Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus tweeted support in the best possible way after Northwestern’s first ever NCAA Tournament berth on Sunday. Fittingly, the actress posted her infamous Seinfeld “full body dry heave set to music” in celebration of her son, Wildcats guard Charlie Hall, qualifying for the tourney.

The tweet is perfect.

Louis-Dreyfus’ roots with Northwestern run deep. In the late 70’s, she went there before dropping out after booking a professional acting gig. Her husband, actor/writer Brad Hall, also graduated from the school. Louis-Dreyfus has regularly cheered on Hall, including last week at the Big Ten tournament.

Northwestern men’s basketball will be making their first appearance in the tourney after the Wildcats finished fifth in the Big Ten at 23-11 under coach Chris Collins.

Entering the program as a walk-on, Hall appeared in just 20 minutes of action in first two seasons. The 19-year-old hasn’t scored his first basket with Northwestern, but perhaps, it will come in the NCAA Tournament. That’d be one hell of a way to get your first two points.

Regardless, Hall’s a great presence on the Wildcats. Possessing comedic chops of his own, watch him grill teammate Nathan Taphorn for not passing him the ball during a blowout win against Rutgers.

As an eight seed in the West Region, Northwestern will have a somewhat challenging journey in the tournament. Up first, is a matchup against the ninth-seeded Vanderbilt. Hopefully, Hall and teammates can put up a fight in the school’s first-ever tournament game.

However, whatever the result is and how many minutes (if any) Hall plays, Louis-Dreyfus will be unquestionably proud of both her son and alma matter’s accomplishments.
