A Louisville men's basketball fan went viral on ESPN during the Cardinals' home game against Duke tonight. The fan did a not-so-nice hand signal in the apparent direction of the Blue Devils' bench late in the contest.

Duke, which once trailed Louisville by 23 points, made a furious comeback to tie the game, take the lead and ultimately hold on for an epic victory. It was one of the biggest comebacks in the history . of the Blue Devils' program.

Following one of Duke's late buckets, ESPN's cameras panned to the crowd, showing an angry Louisville fan. She gave the middle finger toward the Blue Devils' bench - twice.

"Strong middle finger game from this Louisville fan."

There is no arguing with that.

That's a mostly fair reaction considering the circumstances. Louisville was in line for one of the biggest victories of the college basketball season, only to blow the lead in disastrous fashion.

Duke pulled out a last-second, 71-69 victory at Louisville.

The Blue Devils are now 22-2 on the season, while the Cardinals dropped to 17-8.
