Pitt’s Blake Hinson taunts Duke fans from atop the scoring charts after upsetting the No. 7 Blue Devils … as several Cameron Crazies are seen tossing the Panthers star.

Pitt guard Blake Hinson went viral Saturday night by taunting the Cameron Crazies after his shooting performance in an 80-76 win over seventh-ranked Duke.

Hinson scored 24 points on a perfect 7-of-7 3-point shooting as Pittsburgh won at Cameron Indoor Stadium for the first time since 1979.

Overall, Hinson shot 8-of-10 from the floor and grabbed a team-high 8 rebounds as the Panthers (11-7, 2-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) snapped a four-game losing streak against the Blue Devils. Pitt also got 16 points and six assists from Jaland Lowe and 11 points from Ishmael Leggett.

But it was Hinson’s decision to jump on the scoreboard and taunt Blue Devils fans that most will remember from the game. Not only did Hinson draw jeers from the crowd, but several enraged Duke students were seen tossing the Panthers star.

«Good morning,» The Athletic’s John Hollinger wrote on Twitter when he reposted the clip. “Today we are all Blake Hinson.

«Our guys had poise, they had toughness, we were together and guys came up and played some great games,» said Pitt coach Jeff Capel, himself a former Duke player. «We got off to a great start. We were not afraid of the moment. We were not afraid of the environment. We’re really proud of our guys for finding a way to win.”

“I didn’t like our start at first. That’s something we have to address,” Duke coach Jon Scheyer said. “By the way, I also want to apologize to our fans.

Led by a two-handed dunk by Federiko Federiko, Pitt jumped out to a 21-10 lead. Duke fought back, but it seemed like every time the Blue Devils took the lead, Hinson was there to answer. After the Blue Devils took a one-point advantage on Filipowski’s layup and free throw with 6:35 to play, Hinson responded with his seventh 3-pointer of the game.

With Duke cutting the deficit to one point with 1:10 to play, Lowe swished a 3-pointer with Filipowski’s hand in his face. Free throws by Lowe and Hinson with under 10 seconds left put the game out of reach. After the buzzer sounded, Hinson jumped on the press table and taunted the Cameron Crazies.

“This is one of the toughest places to win in the country,” Hinson said. «So it was just an example of climbing Mount Everest and looking down on it and saying, ‘I did it.’ … It’s nothing but respect.»

It was Capel’s first win as an opposing coach at Duke, where he played from 1993 to 1997 under Mike Krzyzewski.
