Louisville Women Trick Duke Into Defending Wrong Basket

This trick play coming out of half time was genius. Too bad Louisville still lost the game.

No. 13 Duke upset No. 8 Louisville Monday night 58-55. And because you certainly worth watching (neither was I), the below clip proves maybe why we should have.

Although they still lost the game, it turns out Louisville women’s basketball is full of genius caliber talent, pulling a little trick play I’m not sure I’ve ever seen before.

Coming out after half time, Louisville setup near the same basket they shot at in the first half. Duke just played along, so when the Cardinals in-bounded the ball, it was a clear shot to a wide open layup.

Hilarious. And genius. How does no one on the Duke bench, including the coach, realize what’s happening.
