Duke's men's basketball program looked pretty invincible during its first couple of games of the 2018-19 regular season. Some people were seriously saying that the Blue Devils could beat an NBA team (we're looking at you, Jay Williams).

Coach K's team doesn't look so invincible anymore, though.

Duke lost its first game of the season tonight in the Maui Invitational Tournament.

Gonzaga, the No. 3 team in the country, upset No. 1 Duke in the tournament's championship game this evening.

It was Duke's first loss in the history of the Maui Invitational Tournament. The Blue Devils came into the game at 17-0 all-time.

Duke fell to 5-1 on the season with the loss tonight.

Gonzaga, meanwhile, improved to 6-0 on the season. The Bulldogs will probably be your new No. 1 overall team in college basketball come next week.
