For the first time since January 5, 1983, Duke’s basketball team lost a home game to an unranked non-Power Conference foe. Stephen F. Austin’s Nathan Bain converted a layup at the overtime buzzer to stun No. 1 Duke 85-83 Tuesday night at Cameron Indoor Stadium. It snaps the Blue Devils’ 150-game non-conference home win streak.

This was the first ever meeting between Duke and Stephen F. Austin in men’s basketball. The Lumberjacks improve to 5-and-1 on the season, while Duke drops to 6-and-1.
