Bagley already making history at Duke

Bagley already making history at Duke

The other game pins No. 4 Kansas against No. 5 Kentucky, but all eyes are going to be on the first game between the Spartans and Blue Devils.

There is a pair of great College Basketball games on tap Tuesday from the United Center in Chicago.

"It'll be the biggest game that all of those freshmen have played in thus far", Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "He's a very good player".

Duke's freshmen have made the adjustment to the college game look easy through two games.

Marvin Bagley III set the record for most points scored by a Duke freshman in a collegiate debut, Friday night with 25 points.

Duke is No. 1 in The Associated Press' first regular-season poll of 2017-18.

"When we get the ball with two hands, we can really change ends well", Krzyzewski said. "With Grayson and Gary, you have the threat of the three, and then these big guys can really run". And after six seasons of the Classic, the records are remarkably equal with United Kingdom being the only program with a winning record (4-2) in the round-robin format, with Duke and Michigan State at 3-3 and KU standing 2-4 record. In fact, if Michigan State's Spartans can't derail the Dookies tonight, it's not inconceivable to imagine the Blue Devils reaching the NCAA tournament still undefeated in March.

That being said, Michigan State had a similar dominating start to the season with a 32-point victory over North Florida.

This is going to be a great basketball game.

The Blue Devils flummoxed Bridges a year ago and held the sophomore to just 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting. With a thin bench, the Blue Devil starters will have to be wary to avoid foul trouble that could expose their inexperienced second unit. All seven events have featured the same four teams rotating against one another: Michigan State, Duke, Kansas and Kentucky. There's just something about this Tom Izzo team that makes me believe that they will win this game at this time - plus Izzo has a history of pulling off upsets on neutral courts. Despite almost putting up triple digits on the scoreboard Friday, the Spartans finished only 3-of-12 from beyond the arc.

On a Duke team that has players capable of filling nearly any role, the one question mark is lockdown defender.

Allen thinks it will be old hat for the new kids.

The Blue Devils are more than really good.

"I'm the luckiest guy to coach ever".

Hank Tucker and Mitchell Gladstone contributed reporting. "It'll be a hell of a night".
