Kyle Lowry went after Jared Dudley on Twitter as the opening night of NCAA College basketball took place. One of the premier matches for everyone was the Villanova Wildcats taking on the Boston College Eagles. Villanova are widely believed to be one of the best teams playing this season. While the Boston College Eagles have generated a reputation as the worst.
However, the game between the colleges was very close. Villanova was down by 9-points and everyone expected a massive NCAA style upset. But the Wildcats stuck in and Jeremiah Robinson-Earl helped them ultimately get a 9-point win. This booked a berth for Villanova in the Finals of the 2K Empire Classic Challenge,
Kyle Lowry and Jared Dudley started having fun with each other after Dudley retweeted a post talking about the unlikely success of the Eagles. After all, Dudley played for that college. Lowry, a former Villanova Wildcat made fun of Dudley believing in his team by asking him to pay out on a bet.
Dudley would take his loss and just tweet out facepalm emojis.
The Wildcats will now take on the Arizona State Sun Devils in the Finals. This will be one of the early highlights of this NCAA season.
While Lowry may be an NBA champion now, he had the same start s most NBA players. Inside a Division One college, hoping to be drafted high enough when their time to jump to the NBA comes about. Lowry spent two seasons with the Wildcats and saw his #1 jersey retired for his association with the program.
While Villanova is a glamorous program, Boston College is not. And that is precisely where Jared Dudley comes from. However, Dudley may just be one of their greatest players. He won ACC Player of the Year in 2007 for the college and even made an All-American Team. However, his NBA career hasn’t seen the same success as Lowry’s. Despite that, Dudley did become an NBA champion this season with the LA Lakers.
Their friendly bet may be a joke on Twitter, but the Eagles winning would have caused a lot of bookies to pay out asinine bets on this massive upset.
