<p>Mike Krzyzewski had a lot to be angry about during Duke's disappointing loss at home against Stephen F. Austin.</p>

The 2019-20 college basketball season can already be defined as one of colossal upsets, with No. 1 Duke’s buzzer-beating loss to Stephen F. Austin coming on the heels of then-No. 2 Kentucky’s shocking loss to Evansville earlier this month.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski has experienced a fair share of big-time losses in his storied career — notably a 2012 loss to Lehigh and a 2014 loss to Mercer in the NCAA tournament’s first round. (READ MORE) by Scott Gleeson | USA Today

The ending to No. 1 Duke’s 85-83 loss to Stephen F. Austin Tuesday night was nothing short of catastrophic.

Prior to this game, the Blue Devils had gone 150 games without losing to a nonconference challenger in Cameron Indoor Stadium and the Lumberjacks were among the least likely candidates to break this streak, finishing last season with a 7-11 record in the Southland conference and ranking outside of the top 200 in KenPom.com’s ratings. Yet somehow Stephen F. Austin outplayed the No. 1 team in the country on its home court. (READ MORE) by Cam Polo | Duke Chronicle

Heading into Tuesday night, Duke had won a nation’s-best 150 consecutive home games against non-conference opponents. All the top-ranked Blue Devils needed to do in order to extend that streak to 151 was to take care of a Stephen F. Austin squad that was coming off a 69-57 loss to Rutgers.

Final score in overtime: Stephen F. Austin 85, Duke 83; Coach K’s first home loss to a non-ACC team since the Devils lost to St. John’s all the way back on Feb. 26, 2000. (READ MORE) by Mark Rutherford | SB Nation
