It’s well known that Duke gets some notorious calls playing in Cameron Indoor Stadium, but the Blue Devils were also the beneficiaries of one peculiar call playing on the road in East Lansing.
Playing in the ACC-B1G Challenge on Tuesday night, Michigan State and Duke are squaring off in a much-anticipated showdown. Though both teams have suffered setbacks early in the season, there’s no denying these are two of the most talented teams in the country led by legendary head coaches in Tom Izzo and Mike Krzyzewski.
Unfortunately, one of the early highlights is this absolutely ridiculous foul call on Michigan State’s Foster Loyer. Early in the first half, Loyer made one awful turnover that turned into a one-on-one fastbreak vs Duke’s Tre Jones.
In his attempt to run back on defense, Loyer tripped and fell, landing on his back inside the restricted circle. Jones easily laid the ball up and in for two points but came down with one of his feet on Loyer’s chest in the process.
Why is that significant? Loyer was called for a blocking foul while flat on his back.

It looks like Duke really does get all the calls.
