Is Bill Murray Xavier‘s lucky charm???
If you’re keeping up with March Madness, you know the 11-seed Xavier Musketeers pulled off a major upset (and ruined everyone’s brackets) last night when they defeated the 2-seed Arizona.
What you may not know is that the SNL alum’s son, Luke Murray, is the assistant coach of the Musketeers squad!
Needless to say, Bill has been following his son’s team around the Big Dance — and Twitter has fallen in love with the celeb’s school spirit!
Ch-ch-check out what we mean (below):
And since Bill’s favorite Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 108 years this year, everyone — even Dwayne Wade and Jerry Ferrara — seems to think you should never bet against the Space Jam actor when it comes to sports:
The power of Bill Murray… This is his year in sports….. As a fan ofcourse

Fully convinced after Xavier’s upset that Bill Murray magic is real and an unstoppable force of nature.
