SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah guard Donovan Mitchell wore a Louisville Cardinals themed edition of his signature Adidas shoes and watched his former college team upset the Duke Blue Devils before the Jazz tipped off against the Sacramento Kings.

Mitchell and the Jazz hosted the Kings at Vivint Smart Home Arena on Saturday, January 18. The Jazz guard’s college squad played at Cameron Indoor Stadium earlier on Saturday afternoon.

The Jazzman watched his No. 11 ranked Cardinals upset the No. 3 Blue Devils 79-73 on their home court from the sidelines during pregame warmups before the Sacramento vs. Utah game.

Mitchell wore a pair of Cardinals themed version of his Adidas D.O.N Issue #1 signature kicks in support of his college squad.

“That’s a big win,” said Mitchell after the final seconds of the Louisville vs. Duke game expired.

Mitchell’s alum improved to 15-3 on the season with the victory. The Jazz will also have bragging rights over Utah head coach Quin Snyder who played his college ball at Duke.

Mitchell and the Jazz were hot to start their game against the Kings in Salt Lake City and owned a 63-49 advantage at halftime.

The third-year guard scored 16 points on 4-10 shooting during the first 24 minutes of the game. Mitchell shot 3-7 from downtown while pulling down a rebound and dishing out an assist in 18 minutes of play. He posted a +13 plus-minus rating at the break.

Sacramento vs. Utah is broadcast on NBA League Pass, AT&T SportsNet, and 97.5 FM.
