18-year-old Canadian RJ Barrett sets new record in Duke debut

Coach K isn't happy with a play Barrett scores 33, No. 4 Duke blows out No. 2 Kentucky in season opener

Everyone expected Duke to be good-but to be so good that would hand a second-ranked Kentucky team a 34-point beat down in its debut? It will be interesting to see how United Kingdom bounces back from this one.

Rather than in the courts. Kansas will also be able to rely on Lagerald Vick, the only senior of the Kansas roster, to provide the Jayhawks with a veteran spark. But it nevertheless has cast a shadow over the school that has been hard to shake.

That's why the ease of Duke's effort in the Champions Classic should terrify the college basketball landscape.

The No. 10 ranked Michigan State Spartans gave the top team in the country all they could handle in Tuesday's season opener.

"With 8 minutes to go, I said, "I'm not calling a timeout". On both sides of the floor, on the glass and on the perimeter, the junior captain was locked in and hungry. The Spartans lack high-level wing players who can create their own offense. We'll have to play a lot better than what we have played.

"Go Big Blue! Go Big Blue", they continued, this time with a Jayhawk at the free-throw line. And one of their steadiest ball-handlers in their two games at Allen Fieldhouse was Charlie Moore, a transfer from California.

Even Kansas head coach Bill Self acknowledged a little frustration regarding Tom Izzo's bunch earlier this week, per Gary Bedore of the Kansas City Star, saying, "They always seem to play well against us". Either they're a great handling team or we're not doing enough defensively. Kansas has incoming transfer from Memphis Dedric Lawson who is a force.

For both college basketball and NBA fans, the first day of the collegiate season was a treat.

Looking back at past year, there are two very impressive playmakers that Kansas will miss. Azubuike, an All-Big 12 Second Team selection in 2017-18, is KU's leading returning scorer at 13.0 ppg and rebounder at 7.0 rpg.

Like, what the hell did we just watch, and can it be stopped? And if you foul, I'm taking you out.

Self has done an admirable job insulating his players from the off-the-court issues that could have become a distraction. But it did Tuesday night and Calipari didn't fault the fans.

It's the beginning of the season. But both players stand to show how quickly the game can change around you, as the "positionless basketball" that-theoretically-was supposed to help develop both has put their long-term roles in the league in jeopardy.

BTW - if you didn't see the game last night (shame on you) we got Zion highlights below. told you they were ridiculous.

This is the program that has made four trips to the Final Four under Calipari. "When I look at some of my favorite things I get to do, and there was a lot of them, you know the aircraft (Carrier Classic) and this and that". "Obviously, we were all very excited and hyped up for that game, and it's kind of a blow to your chest".
