Watch: Cheeky basketball trick works in a big American game

Hoodwinks don't get cheekier than this.

The Louisville Cardinals set up at the wrong end of the court in the third quarter, fooling Duke into defending the wrong basket and scoring an easy bucket.

Coach Jeff Walz said: "I watch teams when they come out at halftime. We have done that once or twice before."

The Blue Devils may have had red faces, but they recovered to win the college basketball game in North Carolina.
