There was some world-class jagoffery going on in the Duke student section during last night's N.C. State-Duke game. In the second half, N.C. State guard Tyler Lewis stepped to the free-throw line and was reportedly greeted by a chant of, "How's your grandma?" from the Cameron Crazies. Lewis's grandma died last Friday. You can listen for yourself in the video above, but it's tough to decipher exactly what was being said. Whatever's being said does sound a bit like, "Past your bedtime!" which the Crazies were reportedly chanting throughout the game. Still, accusations and conflicting information began to swirl on Twitter.
Tyler Lewis' grandmother died last Friday. He was close to her and called her every day to check in. Duke fans chanted "How's your grandma?"— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) February 8, 2013
Woah, everybody. Not like it was the entire student section. Just a few knuckleheads off to my right.— Nolan Evans (@RealNolanEvans) February 8, 2013
I was sitting on press row toward the Duke entrance. No reason to demonize the student section, guys. Handful of dumb college kids.— Nolan Evans (@RealNolanEvans) February 8, 2013
It sounds like it was just a few jerks at the Duke game who chanted. Still messed up, but glad to hear it wasn't the entire student section.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) February 8, 2013
And this, from Lewis's teammate Rich Howell, has been getting retweeted despite Howell's account being protected:
