The best of the week on social media

College Basketball: Key rivalry matchups highlight this week's Social Rewind

This week was rivalry week, which greeted those fans who are picking up college basketball after the conclusion of the NFL season with some of the best games of the season. Rivalry creates passion, and passion leads to some excellent social media posts.

As always, we're here to find the best social media has to offer in the world of college basketball. This week we had a ridiculous blooper, a beautiful Valentine's Day invitation, and more.

Here are the five best social media moments from the past week.

4) The biggest rivalry in college basketball, arguably, is Duke-North Carolina. It has everything you could want: history, legends, championships, and fans. Yes the Cameron Crazies were out in full force Thursday night, and the electric atmosphere helped the Blue Devils take down the Tarheels 86-78. After the game, Grayson Allen had this message of thanks for the fans. Just as interesting as what Allen are saying the the interactions of all of the other Duke players, messing and giggling with each other. It's cool to know that they get as excited about a big win as we do.

3) During Creighton's 93-58 blowout of DePaul, Marcus Foster caught a back door pass and rose up for a dunk. What happens next was ... unfortunate ... for Depaul's R.J. Curington. Foster kept rising and rising before throwing down a dunk on Curington's head. In order to apologize, Foster took to Twitter. It's a kind gesture, but I'm not sure it quite makes up for what happened on the court.

2) North Dakota State took care of Denver 83-61 on Saturday to remain on top of the Summit League standings. But that's not the real story here. No, that comes from Khy Kabellis as he was falling out of bounds chasing a rebound. A behind-the-back flip shot into the opponent's basket? You may have seen a behind-the-back flip shot, you may have seen someone score on an opponent's basket, but you've never seen a behind-the-back flip shot into an opponent's basket. Is this a blooper? Or just plain amazing?

1) Valentine's Day is Tuesday, And Ole Miss made the most of the opportunity with a buy-one-get-one-free offer for tickets. To promote, they put out a dating profile video on 6 foot 9 center Sebastian Saiz. No matter how awesome you think it sounds, it's a hundred times better. The accent, the fake mustache, the shirt? Hilarious.
