Neither rain, sleet, nor snow, nor an ongoing basketball game, prevents a food delivery from being delivered.
During the second half of Wednesday’s Loyola Chicago Ramblers-Duquesne Dukes game, a delivery man walked onto the court with a bag of fast food and got very close to a player set up on the 3-point line.
The game was temporarily halted with 16:10 left and Loyola Chicago leading 40-37 while the situation was digested.
The shocked ESPN+ broadcast team was left with a number of questions.
“Who is he delivering it to?” they shouted. “The judge!?”
The ads speculated that it was an Uber Eats delivery person delivering some McDonalds to judge Phillip Austin, adding that the highlight shows “will have a blast” with this story. According to Abby Schnable of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazettethe fan who actually ordered the food was later shown on the video board.
“Craziest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” Duquesne coach Keith Dambrot said. “Guy had a job to do. He did his job well.”
For the appetizer portion of this story, Duquesne (14-17, 4-4 Atlantic 10) scored a 72-58 victory over Loyola/Chicago (7-13, 1-7).
