Bryce Harper hung out with Duke basketball after they beat his hometown team


By Jason Dobkin

Bryce Harper was born in Las Vegas. He's rooted for UNLV basketball, but he's also a Duke fan.Β 

Saturday night, after Duke throttled UNLV 94-45 in Vegas, Harper made it clear where his loyalty lies.

Coach K has complimented Harper's Instagram in the past and praised him for what he's done on the baseball field. Harper has also gotten Duke gear and tweeted about his fandom, drawing an expectedly annoyed reaction from Nationals fans.

Harper grew up a New York Yankees fan and also likes the Dallas Cowboys, so this isn't terribly surprising.
