Another night, another court-storming. This time, unranked UVA knocked off No. 3 Duke at home, 73-68. While the Wahoos were favored according to Vegas, the fans at the stadium used the “upset” as an opportunity to party at mid-court anyway.
Joe Harris had 36 points and seven rebounds, shooting 12-of-20 for the Cavaliers, who may be officially off the bubble. Akil Mitchell chipped in 19 points and 12 boards as well. UVA withstood a great effort from Duke’s Seth Curry, who had 28 points of his own.
Here’s the final buzzer and the subsequent party in Charlottesville.
