Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) posted a celebratory selfie late Monday from the NCAA championship game -- just moments before his team lost.

The GOP senator cheered on Texas Tech, whose championship bid came up short in overtime against Virginia, and other Twitter users mocked his selfie taken in the upper deck of Minneapolis' U.S. Bank Stadium.

Texas Tech ultimately fell 85-77 in overtime, and other social media users hammered Cruz for celebrating a one-point lead late in the game.

Cruz followed up with another tweet after Texas Tech lost, but that didn't go much better.
