The top-ranked Duke’s men’s basketball team headed into Tuesday night ready to roll over Stephen F. Austin University in what was supposed to be an absolute cakewalk, as the Blue Devils were playing at home and listed as 27.5-point favorites over the tiny Texas school.

However, it’s safe to say things didn’t exactly go as planned.

Duke jumped out to an early lead but the Lumberjacks fought their way back and managed to tie things up by the end of regulation time, and while the Blue Devils had possession of the ball with under ten seconds to go in overtime, Stephen F. Austin’s Gavin Kensmil managed to steal the ball before dishing it to Nathan Bain, who drove down the court and scored a buzzer-beating layup to shock the world.

The loss marked the first time Duke had lost to a nonconference opponent at Cameron Indoor Stadium since the start of the millennium and was the biggest upset college basketball has seen in 15 years, and as a result, the internet predictably exploded to dance on the grave of the Blue Devils.

Shortly after the game, Zion Williamson hopped on Twitter, but based on what he posted, he seemed to have no idea how the game ended considering the tweet he sent out.

It seems it didn’t take long for the Pelican to realize what had actually transpired, as the tweet was quickly deleted, but thankfully, it was screenshotted for posterity.

In fairness to Williamson, there’s little doubt Duke will make the NCAA tournament despite the loss but perhaps he should have waited for literally any other time to post what he did.
