Sports News, Fantastic freshmen help Duke blow out Kentucky

Barrett scores 33, No. 4 Duke blows out No. 2 Kentucky in season opener Fantastic freshmen help No. 4 Duke blow out No. 2 Kentucky

The No. 4 ranked Blue Devils looked like a team deserving of the No. 1 ranking during this win.

But Cassius Winston missed a layup for Michigan State, Kansas grabbed the rebound and Grimes sealed it by making 1 of 2 free throws.

It sure didn't look like it would be so close after Kansas withstood Michigan State's early 3-point flurry. He was efficient with his shooting too, going 13-for-26 from the field.

A big factor in the amount of points produced by the Spartans was their success from long range, as they sank 12 3-point shots on a 52 percent clip.

R.J. Barrett scored 33 points and Zion Williamson added 28 in an explosive debut by Duke's touted freshmen, and the fourth-ranked Blue Devils beat No. 2 Kentucky 118-84 on Tuesday night in the season-opening Champions Classic.

John Calipari asserted Kentucky's Tuesday's season opener with Duke was "just another game for us at that point".

Williamson scored 28 points in his Duke debut and broke Marvin Bagley III's 25-point record set in 2017.

Let's not pretend freshman RJ Barrett - the actual top overall prospect in high school and the upcoming National Basketball Association draft - didn't go off for a Duke debut record of 33 points and six assists or that freshman Cam Reddish didn't spread the defense to drop 22 points of his own.

Or perhaps it was that Duke not only outplayed Kentucky, but it also outhustled Kentucky. After the addition of grad transfer Reid Travis, then the way the team blasted through the Bahamas, there was plenty of feel-good hype leading into not only Tuesday's marquee matchup but the season as well. Kansas was 10 of 23 on 3-pointers. The legendary coach probably has the most talent he's ever assembled for one season. The Eagles' output was the lowest since the Carrier Dome opened in 1980. "Obviously it's a great measuring stick to see where we're at, but as far as a full season and the things that we're trying to accomplish this season, that is just the first game, and kinda take it for what it is". The Boilermakers went on separate 14-0 and 7-0 runs in the first half and built a comfortable 17-point halftime edge. "The truth", said Smith during a segment of First Take.

"C-A-T-S, Cats, Cats, Cats", exclaimed the crowd midway through the second half.

The offense missed the versatility of sophomore forward Jontay Porter.

Because Duke's freshmen were among the most highly recruited players in the country, they've been accustomed to high-profile events on the high school level.

But Duke closed the half getting easy baskets from Barrett, off a pass from Jones, and Bolden, off a pass from Barrett, to lead 59-42 at intermission. Duke only committed four turnovers, which Calipari said Tuesday night was because United Kingdom didn't defend well. Udoka Azubuike finished with 17 points.

Keldon Johnson made 8-of-16 shots from the floor and 6-of-10 free throws.

The Wildcats also benefit from the return of reliable power forward PJ Washington, who put up 10.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per game last season. The previous high was Tennessee's 1.360 in the Vols' 88-58 win over Knetucky on February 16, 2013. Assists - Michigan St. 19 (Winston 11), Kansas 21 (D.Lawson 6). Supplemented by solid performances from their guards - only three players on the roster, including a walk-on, didn't post points in the blowout - the towering trio proved what happens when you bring three agile 6-foot-7 monsters onto the court at the same time.
