MSU vs. Duke in Champions Classic

This will be the 12th meeting between Duke and Michigan State in the Mike Kryzewski Tom Izzo era

This will be the 12th meeting between Duke and Michigan State in the Mike Kryzewski Tom Izzo era

No. 1 Duke takes on No. 2 Michigan State at 7 p.m. ET, with No. 4 Kansas taking on No. 7 Kentucky 30 minutes after game one. This time around it is Duke that is the young team, with eight freshmen on the roster. - Arizona is still very much among the title favorites, and it's still way too early rule anyone out, but Michigan State, Duke, Kansas and Kentucky all have the opportunity to pick up statement wins Tuesday.

He is interested to see how a team with four starting freshmen react. Neither team will pass the victor of the Michigan State-Duke game, and the loser should remain in the top 10.

This is a team that can dominate the boards if you're not careful and a team that can shoot if you let them.

"I want to dive right in", Bridges said. "I think there's more to come, I'm just not sure how many". On Friday, Duke beat Elon and then on Sunday they smoked Utah Valley. Graham scored 10 points with 12 assists in the Jayhawks' opener, proving his move to lead guard should be a smooth one this season. The public betting is siding with Duke, but I like the Spartans tonight. Michigan State came up far short of its goals in 2016-17, but it has a chance to prove that this year is different.

Bridges' teammates are no slouches, either, of course, as the game is billed as a showdown between potential Final Four teams. The game will be played at the United Center in Chicago. Allen is the only Duke player to play in last year's Michigan State game.


"Some of it's because they played better than us, some of it is because they were better than us and you know they're going to be good every year", Izzo said. That game this year is technically the undercard, No. 1 Duke vs.

1 in the preseason poll and received 34 of 65 first-place votes from a national media panel in the AP Top 25 released after winning their first two games.

The game could be heard over the 38-affiliate, Spartan Sports Network, which includes WMMQ-FM (94.9)/WJIM-AM (1240) in Lansing and WJR-AM (760) in Detroit.

In between the two games, ESPN will also air a showcase of the latest College Football Playoff rankings, expected to air around 9 PM ET.
