Boston College pulled off an upset for the ages Saturday at home against top ranked Duke.
BC won a shocking game 89-84, and it was borderline unbelievable. The craziest part of the whole thing was when Boston College turned off the lights in an attempt to stop students from rushing the court.
It didn’t work at all.

Naturally, the internet had plenty of grade-A reactions to the biggest upset of the year so far.
The timeless tradition of everyone you’ve ever known reaching out after a Duke loss. Not after we beat top 10 teams. If you think our season is even close to over you need to go find a new sport pic.twitter.com/BMFzRp4iNA

Look, there is no need to overreact if you’re a Duke fan. Coach K will have the Blue Devils rolling come their next practice. There is no chance this has any major impact on their tournament chances.
Having said that, I love Grayson Allen, but I still love watching Duke lose. They stole a ring off of my finger a couple years ago in the national championship game. I will never forgive them for that garbage. It was straight theft.
Anyways, here’s a fun video of Duke losing in the first round to South Carolina last year to brighten your day if BC beating them wasn’t enough.
