The Duke Blue Devils were the three-seed in the Midwest Region, but they won’t be continuing their journey in March Madness any further than the first round. The Duke Blue Devils have been bounced in the round of 64 by a team seeded much lower than they were.
It was the first tournament since 1985 that Mercer had been in, but they arrived back on the scene with a violent force, knocking out the Blue Devils and busting brackets everywhere.
Needless to say, fans of either Duke or those who had their brackets busted, were not happy and took to Twitter to vent their rage. But it seemed everyone else celebrated Duke’s loss on Twitter:
Always pissed me off how Duke mysteriously found itself in front of home crowds in the tourney. Not so much today.
