Duke, Wisconsin twitter accounts have epic pregame exchange

Tuesday April 7th, 2015

Duke and Wisconsin's official twitter accounts had an epic back-and-forth worth of jabs Monday in the run up to the two schools' NCAA championship matchup. Let's take a look.

Wisconsin got things started off with a Shaq-shimmy.

Duke countered with its mascot doing a sort of celebration-style touchdown dance.

Wisconsin upped the ante by pulling out an Arrested Development reference. 

Then Duke got cold, noting that blue was the same color of its four NCAA championship banners. 

From there, we descended into glossy-photos-of-Christian-Laettner territory:

And finally, the two swapped Saturday Night Live references.

If Monday's national championship game has half this much sparring, we'll be in for a barn-burner.
