The biggest upset of the 2014 NCAA Tournament took place on Friday with Jabari Parker’s Duke Blue Devils (3rd seed) falling to Mercer Bears (14th seed).
Following the devastating loss by Duke, North Carolina product Kendall Marshall immediately took advantage of the situation by clowning teammate and Duke alum Ryan Kelly on his Vine account:
With the Blue Devils officially knocked out of the NCAA Tournament, the attention will turn to Andrew Wiggins of Kansas. Parker was expected to turn some heads in the tourney as arguably the expected number one overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, but that may have changed with Duke’s early exit.
Wiggins has an ideal opportunity to increase his draft stock with an impressive showing in the tourney with Parker now sent home in the biggest upset thus far.
Other players to watch from here on out are Kentucky’s Julius Randle and Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart. Both players are likely get a lot of consideration as high draft picks in the upcoming draft if able to prove their worth in the tourney.
