There was a major blunder involving the Duke basketball program on Jeopardy!

Sports questions on Jeopardy! typically yield hysterical responses and the Duke basketball program was at the center of the latest blunder on the popular game show.

The question posed in the ‘Call Yourself a Fan’ category was, “The ‘Cameron Crazies’ are students who show undying support for this university’s Blue Devils basketball teams.”

Seems like an easy answer, right?

Well, contestant Katrina quickly buzzed to answer the question and immediately said, “What is UNC?” only to be denied by host Ken Jennings.

Sorry, Katrina, you just lost an easy $600 question on national television.

Brianne, another contestant on the episode, scooped up the pieces and answered the question correctly and avoided another all-time social media moment.

Katrina’s biggest problem during the question was answering ‘UNC’, the biggest rival to the Duke Blue Devils in every sport.

Jennings, one of the best Jeopardy! players of all time, made light of the situation after the question saying, “Katrina is not making many friends in North Carolina right now.”

Duke basketball forward takes notice of blunder

The basketball world took notice of the hysterical blunder on Thursday night, including current Duke freshman forward Kyle Filipowski.

Filipowski took to Twitter to comment on the study habits of the contestants in the sports categories.

Filipowski, a five-star prospect and No. 2 overall recruit in the Class of 2022, is a headliner in a massive Blue Devil recruiting class under first year head coach Jon Scheyer.
