Proud SFA grad (‘85 & ‘87), I’m probably safe saying this will never happen again.

How does SFA end up on Duke’s schedule even? Lol. This is pretty amazing, SFA must have got better at basketball since the last time I paid attention to them when one of my friends played for them 20 years ago.  He wasn’t that good..

Uh, yeah. They’ve won the Southland and made the tourney 4 of the last 6 seasons.

One of the biggest kenpom era upsets ever

Did Elon beating #1 Kentucky last week not tip the scale?

They play at least 1 (maybe more) P5 team each year. Not uncommon for southland schools to go to a P5 to get $$$$. 
 

Alabama played at SFA last year.

Didn't SFA almost beat Texas at the Erwin Center two or three years ago?

Yeah, but would that have surprised anyone?

Proud SFA ‘03 grad tonight. We went and saw them lose at Rutgers last week, turns out the entire team has had the flu and could barely practice. Miracle win.

 

Im still crying. #AxeEm

They beat the shit out of WVU in the tourney and should’ve beat ND to go to the sweet 16 (fuck that no foul call at the buzzer). Almost beat Texas Tech two years ago in the tourney. 

Had a horrible season last year due to injuries. They’re pretty legit and have been for a while now.

The same way rice ends up on Texas' schedule for football? Duke isnt going to nacogdoches. It was a pay me game to get your teeth kicked in and it backfired.

Sfa in 16 beat WV and lost in the last seconds to Notre dame for the sweet 16. They aren't shitty.

Not even close. SFA has been a tournament team more years than not lately. Hell, this wasn’t even the biggest upset this season.

Excep that you just explained why it makes no sense that Duke scheduled them. If you’re looking to schedule cupcakes, SFA shouldn’t be on the list.

The last time Duke lost at home to an unranked mid-major the three point shot and the shot clock had not been adopted in college basketball.

Agreed.  It's a beautiful place for any basketball junkie.

Not Cameron Indoor, but Eric Maynor, and VCU did it in the NCAA in 2007.  We lost our shit that day I can tell you.

From a spread perspective, 27.5, it was bigger than both Evansville (24ish) and UMBC (21ish).

My favorite part is the blatant reach-in foul that the ref refused to call on Duke right before the breakaway layup.

I bet the ref and Duke wishes he had called that now.

Mrs. Chrispy has all of her Lumberjack gear on this morning and is teaching my kids to chant axe em. She was unaware that SFA even played Duke until I told her, but I’ll give her a pass.

Nothing beats Chaminade upsetting Virginia back in the 80's .  College basketball was so much fun to watch during that era.  

Oh, and they beat the Horns in 2012 in their tourney.  Go figure.

The biggest upset is that the refs didn't find a way to waive off that final basket for Coach K.

Needless to say they won't be calling anymore Duke games the rest of the season.
