On Tuesday night the college basketball world was in some sort of funk. It all started with a last-second controversial bucket from the LSU Tigers en route to the team's upset win over No. 5 Kentucky.

After that, Michigan head coach John Beilein was ejected from the Wolverines contest against Penn State just before halftime. With the Wolverines trailing by double-digits in the second half, it looks like the Nittany Lions could provide the second big upset of the night.

But that's not all. The Duke Blue Devils traveled to Louisville tonight for a huge ACC contest against the Louisville Cardinals.

After 20 minutes of play, Louisville holds a 38-29 lead over the Blue Devils.

Zion Williamson leads all scorers with 13 points through the first 20 minutes of action. However, the Blue Devils have struggled from the floor tonight, shooting just a shade over 36-percent.

The Cardinals have a slight edge on the boards, which is a feat against Williamson and the Blue Devils.

Chris Mack's Cardinals also have a slight edge in turnovers, forcing six from the Blue Devils to just four of their own.

Can the Cardinals add to a crazy night of college basketball and pull off the upset over Coach K's team?
