With 1:38 remaining in Duke’s 88-81 loss to South Carolina, Blue Devils sophomore guard Luke Kennard was called for his fifth foul. He couldn’t believe it. The Gamecocks led by nine at that point, their first trip to the Sweet 16 in school history all but assured. The image of Kennard protesting the call would become fodder for those who find great schadenfreude in Duke losing in the NCAA tournament. (Note: There are a lot of those people on Twitter.com!)
The saving grace for Duke and Kennard is that life goes on and the next round of the tournament will provide additional source material for new memes. Get used to seeing this face for a while, though.
