The No. 1 college basketball team in the country has once again lost in a shocking upset at home. A couple of weeks after then-No. 1 Kentucky, top-ranked Duke has fallen at home.
Coach K’s team lost to Stephen F. Austin in a stunner in overtime. Duke fell to SFA, 85-83, in one of the craziest endings you’ll ever see.
Duke and Stephen F. Austin were tied and the Blue Devils had the ball with the clock running out. Tre Jones dribbled toward the lane and passed the ball underneath, but the Blue Devils couldn’t hang onto it. Stephen F. Austin ended up with it and Nathan Bain made his way down the court with time about to expire.
Just before the clock hit 0.0, Bain made a layup for the win.

Upsets – and game-winners in general – just don’t get any crazier than that.
This was Duke’s first home loss to a non-conference opponent in a long time.
