2nd-Ranked Kentucky Crushed By 4th-Ranked Duke In Season Opener

2nd-Ranked Kentucky Crushed By 4th-Ranked Duke In Season Opener

And although most voters are likely to refrain from putting Duke in the top spot in next week's AP Top 25 Poll - after all, No. 1 Kansas did take care of its business by beating No. 10 Michigan State, 92-87, in the first game of the Champions Classic - that also seems a bit silly after what the nation just witnessed. "We have to do some soul searching", Calipari said after the game.

"They were magnificent, " coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "As we mature, we'll be able to stop those blows and flip it". "They were just better than us". They combined for 83 points on the night, nearly outscoring the Wildcats' entire roster.

Barrett was 13 of 26 from the field while Williamson was 11 of 13 with seven rebounds.

You can't guard him, either, as evidenced by the 28 points he posted on 11-for-13 shooting. While there was plenty of attention on top-flight freshmen R.J. Barrett and Cameron Reddish, Zion Williamson produced the biggest reaction from coast to coast, putting on an absolute show of athleticism and force in his first game as a college player. "You start four freshmen, and no matter how talented they are, you don't know what they're going to do in this environment against an outstanding team and a great program".

Keldon Johnson led the Wildcats with 23 points while Reid Travis added 22 points.

Maybe Kentucky fans heard that because many had left by then, something that nearly never happens at a Kentucky basketball game. 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. The Blue Devils outscored United Kingdom by 24 from the arc.

Bryce Harper Turned Down $300 Million Contract From Nationals
Zack Greinke ($US34 million), David Price ($US31 million) and Clayton Kershaw ($US31 million) all got more . Average annual value would have been $30 million, USA Today Sports's Bob Nightengale reports .

Lawson made a case, too, finishing with 14 rebounds and six assists after sitting out last season following his transfer from Memphis. They finished with only nine points between them on 3-for-12 shooting from the field, and Washington fouled out midway through the second half.

Jones says he's never seen anything like it anywhere - even at Duke - and, when it's all said and done, he's got everything it takes to jump over those other Blue Devil greats.

Although the Blue Devils' early lead quickly silenced Big Blue Nation, Duke will need a vocal leader on the court to keep everyone's heads in check for ACC road games.

1st - Loss by a Calipari UK squad in a season opener and the first time the Cats have been under.500 during his time in Lexington.

A top 15 recruit in his own right, Jones could not be a more flawless point guard for this Duke team.

38-37 - Duke rebounding advantage, including a game-high 11 by reserve forward Jack White.
