Today on KSR: Good morning, Duke lost

Is there anything better to wake up to than the news that Duke lost? As the big red letters on say this morning, “NO.”

Last night, Stephen F. Austin knocked off the No. 1 Blue Devils AT HOME 85-83 on a layup at the buzzer. Duke was favored by 27.5 points, making this the largest upset in college basketball in the past 15 seasons, surpassing Gardner Webb’s win over No. 20 Kentucky in 2007 and, yes, the Cats’ loss to Evansville a few weeks ago. It’s the first time Duke’s lost a nonconference game in Cameron Indoor Stadium since 2000, snapping a 150-game streak. It. Is. Glorious.

One more time with the Titanic music:

Is it wrong to take so much joy in this considering the same thing happened to Kentucky earlier this month? If so, I don’t wanna be right.

After you watch those videos a thousand times, here’s what else is happening today.

We’ll hear from John Calipari

Today around lunch, John Calipari and two of his players will meet with the media to preview Friday night’s game vs. University of Alabama-Birmingham. So far in the — checks schedule to find random tournament name — BBN Showcase, the Blazers beat Lamar 57-48 and Mount St. Mary’s 58-1 and lost to Utah Valley 66-55. So, they are not a great basketball team; however, as we’ve learned this season (AND DUKE LEARNED LAST NIGHT HAHAHA), that doesn’t necessarily matter if this team isn’t ready to play.

We’ll have a live stream of Cal’s comments on the site this afternoon, followed by a recap.

The Volleyball team plays LSU on the SEC Network

At 8 p.m., the No. 14 Kentucky Volleyball team takes on LSU in Baton Rouge. The match will be aired live on the SEC Network or ESPN app. The Cats have won seven straight against the Tigers, including a 3-0 victory in Lexington earlier this season. This is the penultimate match of the regular season, the finale taking place Saturday at 1 p.m. vs. Ole Miss at Memorial Coliseum. (Any chance of changing that game time so it doesn’t interfere with the football game, powers that be?)

The Women’s Team is now 6-0

Last night, your No. 14 women’s basketball team cruised to an 81-35 win over Grambling State, moving their record to 6-0. Rhyne Howard had a season-high 27 points and the Cats shot a season-high 49.1% from the field. Click here for Zack Geoghegan’s recap. The ladies will be back in action vs. Austin Peay at 4 p.m. Sunday.

      Lmao. it’s got to be a mad house at ESPN studios this morning. Haha. I’m loving it too. I could see them just leaving the Duke game off of Sports Center and trying to make some other story seem like Watergate!! 4Ever, you have yourself a great Thanksgiving my brother. Also, How good is that Turkey Sandwich going to be about Saturday or Sunday? Hehe.

    Yes, there is something better….going to bed knowing Duke lost, at home, to an unranked non-conference team for the first time in nearly 20 yrs…..a 27.5 pt dog. I slept like a baby. 🙂

      I hate Duke and while some of it has to do with getting the benefit of the whistle you have to give them credit. That is a pretty incredible feat.

    Kenpom ratings. Evansville was 183. Stephen Austin was 222.

      We’ve seen the gap between power 5 teams and mid-majors closing in recent years. I’m not sure if it’s because more teams are going one-and-done and they come across a mid-major who have had guys develop over 3-4 years together or what, but more upsets happen every year. Makes March Madness more interesting

      Tell that to KYCAPSLOCK4EVER, he likes to compare the Rupp years to present times.

      And Kevin, I know what you’re thinking, don’t try to minimize the magnitude of duke loss or the joy it brings to BBN. Am I right?

    Hopefully our team does something to trump this, but last night when SFA hit that layup was the hardest I’ve cheered this year

      Must have been a great moment. I woke up at 4:00 this morning to the news. Not too many things that I could think of to hear, that early in the morning, that would be better

    $50 says they’ll still be ranked higher than us Monday.

      I’d feel safe betting $50k on that, LOL. They won’t even leave the Top 5.

    What a beautiful thing to see this morning. Now let’s see if they fall as deep in the polls as Kentucky did following their loss or will they just drop to the 5/6 range. Also, only downside is this now sets up Louisville to be the new #1. Let’s hope they can lose to Western KY to complete this masterpiece.

    Its fun early in the season to see these losses. But bank on it the champ will be from UK, Duke, MSU, Kansas, Virgina, Gonazaga, UL, or UNC.

    I wonder if duke will fall to #10

      #2 of course

      Wouldn’t surprise me if they remain number 1 and they would if ESPN had anything to do with it.
