Remember when the Duke Blue Devils used to get through their first game of the NCAA Tournament without any troubles? Well, apparently those days are long behind Coach K and company as No. 3 Duke suffered the biggest upset of the 2014 NCAA Tournament so far after their shocking loss to No. 14 Mercer on Friday.
Despite losing to Virginia in the ACC Championship, many believed the Blue Devils would make a run in this year’s tournament behind Jabari Parker, but that clearly will not the case as Duke will be forced to watch the rest of the tournament from home. Obviously, Coach K has every reason in the world to be frustrated over this loss considering how much of a favorite Duke was heading in, but if there’s anything Duke fans can laugh about after this loss–it would be the epic photobomb one female fan pulled off behind the bench during the game that is taking the internet by storm.
The timing of this photo could not be any better as the expression on this girl’s face towards Coach K is absolutely perfect for when the cameras are focusing in on the Duke bench. This loss by the Blue Devils certainly messed up millions of brackets (of course Warren Buffet is happy) across the country, but for those basketball fans who enjoy watching a good upset, Mercer’s win was everything you could have asked for on the second day of the tournament–and of course the photobomb makes it even more enjoyable.
