Fantastic freshmen help No. 4 Duke blow out No. 2 Kentucky

Barrett scores 33, No. 4 Duke blows out No. 2 Kentucky in season opener

Tom Izzo regrouped his guys and Sparty ended up outscoring Kansas in the second half.

Michigan State: The Spartans' late surge showed they are capable of going toe to toe against the nation's top teams. The Wildcats will have the luxury of throwing fresh bodies to defend the Blue Devils freshman phenom, who will need to adapt on both sides of the ball once play starts.

The win marks the first for the Jayhawks against the Spartans in the Champions Classic, dating back to the event's inception in 2011, and also marks the third-straight victory for KU, beating Kentucky 65-61 in 2017 and Duke 77-75 in 2016.

This was his first shot, a three. Freshman point guard Tre Jones, the younger brother of former Duke star Tyus Jones, finished with seven assists and zero turnovers. "Nobody wanted to lose".

"I think Kentucky will watch this film and face all its mistakes head on", Bilas said.

A pair of freshmen did the heavy lifting for the Jayhawks.

After hitting his sixth trey, Dotson froze in his follow-through pose, soaking in the moment in front of the Jayhawk bench. "Q (Quentin Grimes) was fabulous". If you lose, you just put it in the rearview mirror, learn from it and go on to the next game.

Duke's fabulous freshman weren't just ready for their first turn in the spotlight.

Well, Self saw it, and perhaps now, the KU coach believes it. "We'll take more positives from this than negatives". But there were legitimate questions about how well that would translate to the college level, where player are closer to his size, and his strength, and his athleticism.

Djokovic to end year at No.1 with Rafa out
The tennis player explained the problem had been detected "a while ago and it occasionally bothered me. Rafa Nadal will not take part in the ATP Finals and waves goodbye to the rest of the season.

This 2nd one we have to discuss a little more. "And they responded. They were magnificent tonight".

Or David: "I mean, we're all excited to start the season, as in any other year". "As we mature, we'll be able to stop those blows and flip it". "That's on him to set the tone for that". There's a lot of things, especially Devon, can do, in transition.

With Grimes, Self pointed to a conversation the two had Monday.

While the additions of Reid Travis and freshman such as Tyler Herro and Immanuel Quickley in the lineup could make for some early growing pains as he gets acclimated with new teammates, guys like PJ Washington and Quade Green that figure to play big roles for the Wildcats this season know Cal's system and have a rapport playing with one another as well.

"Before I get fined, I'm going to change the subject", Kerr continues. "Guys were acting like it's high school".

"So that may have hurt us more than helped us", he said of the games in the Bahamas. He also made nimble moves to the basket that you would not expect of someone so big. "Obviously, we've got to learn how to close a game, but I thought we had some really good performances out there". "I don't know how that breeds confidence". There are still plenty of veteran presences to choose from on MSU including point guard Cassius Winston (12.6 ppg, 6.9 apg), shooting guard Joshua Langford (11.7 ppg) and power forward Nick Ward (12.4 ppg, 7.1 rpg). With No. 2 ranked Kentucky hosting No. 4 Duke, it promises to kick the season off in exciting fashion.

Halftime - Kansas 50-36.

Yes, the Kansas Jayhawks have actually prevailed against Michigan State in a game before, including a Second Round matchup between the schools in the 2017 NCAA Tournament, but Kansas is 0-2 against the Spartans all-time in the Champions Classic.
