Duke Losing a Basketball Game Can Heal a Nation

The holiday season seems to bring out the best in humanity.
However, nothing truly brings people together quite like a Duke basketball loss.
This admittedly rare occurence took place recently at the prestigious Maui Invitational.
Those feisty Bulldogs of Gonzaga somehow managed to stop the obscenely talented Blue Devils, 89-87, to take the tourney title.
Even the officials appeared to be complicit, as that may have been a foul there at the end.
After this hoops miracle ended, a nation rejoiced.

Well, it stands to reason that Tar Heel Nation would be pleased.
Can we stop with Duke can beat the worse NBA tm now? I guess Gonzaga can beat a fully healthy Warriors tm? pic.twitter.com/50t2HXu943— shannon sharpe (@ShannonSharpe) November 22, 2018
The nemesis of Skip Bayless is correct.

Coach K can get the best high school players to Duke but he still can’t coach defense.— Taylor Vippolis (@tvippolis) November 22, 2018
Ah yes, the requisite Coach K dig.
BREAKING: Duke has fired Coach K for losing a game with Zion Williamson.— The Fake ESPN (@TheFakeESPN) November 22, 2018
Of course, Fake ESPN is kidding, but the hype machine was getting a bit outta hand.
This is one of the many reasons why people who have absolutely nothing in common can agree wholeheartedly that Duke is pure evil.
However, we can all agree that Zion Williamson is still an animal.
Yeah, these dudes probably won't lose again.
