Duke Basketball: Blue Devils put nation on notice by trouncing Wildcats

In the world of one-and-dones Coach K and Duke attempting to take unprecedented path to a title

In the world of one-and-dones Coach K and Duke attempting to take unprecedented path to a title

The freaky scene of Kentucky fans overtaking a contest between KU and No. 10-ranked Michigan State seemed fitting of a peculiar debut for the new-look and top-ranked Jayhawks, who muscled their way to a 17-point lead with 11:53 to play, almost blew it thanks to a toxic mix of missed free throws and defensive lapses, but nevertheless escaped with a 92-87 victory.

Carmody - who became the first freshman to start an opener for Notre Dame since Torin Francis in 2002 - added 11 points in 14 minutes.

Grimes scored 21 points in his college debut and Lawson added 20 points in his first game with the Jayhawks, helping Kansas stymie No. 10 Michigan State's late charge for a victory in the season-opening Champions Classic. Duke pushed the margin back to 17 at the half, then opened the second half with a 15-5 run to put the game away.

After Kansas was in control for most of the game, the Spartans frantically trimmed a 10-point deficit to 90-87 with 34 seconds left. Udoka Azubuike and Dedric Lawson did the damage in the frontcourt.

KU ended the game with 21 assists on its 31 made field goals. Duke outscored Kentucky by 29 points when he was on the floor Tuesday, per ESPN Stats & Information tracking.

Tuesday night's Champions Classic was as impressive of a premiere as college basketball could have hoped for.

It comes after an unusually high attrition rate of European horses at Werribee this year. He's the one that's given us the encouragement to take the chances in what we do.

With a few more performances like this, we're may have to question if Rose and his teammates-legends at Michigan-would start for this Duke squad.

Jabari Parker and Julius Randle were the second and seventh picks respectively in 2014, and both players are on very different paths to their potential third National Basketball Association contract. David (McCormack), off the bench, in the first half, was terrific.

Quentin Grimes and Devon Dotson carried the Kansas backcourt.

"You know, I was probably not very bright a year ago, but I've never been a guy that thinks you take your best players out in a game", Self said of Azubuike, who also had four blocks in his 20 minutes. And if you foul, I'm taking you out. Now we know what they can actually do.

No. 2 Kentucky has more experienced players than No. 4 Duke. Goins posted a double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds, doing all the dirty work for the Michigan State. But, yeah, they were both "gamers" tonight.

"People have told me in his camp that (Grimes) likes it when the lights are on, that he's a gamer", Self said. "There's probably going to be some emphasis on defense at practice, just staying focused and guarding those shooters". They needed their two-best defenders on Barrett and Williamson, and their point guard needed to guard Tre Jones - we'll get to him in a second - which left Tyler Herro to try and slow down Reddish.
