Sports News, Fantastic freshmen help Duke blow out Kentucky

In the world of one-and-dones Coach K and Duke attempting to take unprecedented path to a title

In the world of one-and-dones Coach K and Duke attempting to take unprecedented path to a title

It returns just two double-figure scorers, but freshman Quentin Grimes is projected to be a lottery pick and should be a huge influence, though nearly certainly a "one and done". There's a belief that the team is at least as good as the 2014-15 team that went undefeated and failed to win it all.

"To play this well on this stage, right away against Kentucky is surprising, " Krzyzewski said after picking up victory No. 1,101 for his career. "I'm really proud of my guys", Coach K said. He was efficient with his shooting too, going 13-for-26 from the field.

Kansas is probably more talented than Vegas is giving it credit for, but it is hard to place this team ahead of the likes of Duke and Kentucky, at least at this early juncture.

After one college game, Zion Williamson is going to win the national championship by himself.

We knew that would be the case with Barrett.

Typically, a team that is considered well-measured and balanced is seen as such because it has an appropriate level of talent at every position.

The Cats were led by freshman wing Keldon Johnson with 23 points and Travis with 22. They allowed 59 points in each half, as Duke didn't slow down until the final whistle. The small forward poured in 22 points, showing off a smooth stroke from beyond the arc, where he was 3-of-8, as well as from the charity stripe, where he was a flawless 7-of-7.

Maybe Kentucky fans heard that because many had left by then, something that nearly never happens at a Kentucky basketball game.

"They were just better than us", Calipari said, per ESPN. "I haven't lost faith in my guys".

Before we get to Dahntay's words.

Open Enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace begins this week
The 2019 sign-up season begins just days before Tuesday's midterm elections, when voters will determine control of Congress. There are a number of factors, government rules, and provisions to take into account before purchasing health insurance .

The one-and-done king John Calipari supposedly has his best Kentucky Wildcats team since the 2012 title team.

As opposed to his Kentucky team in Tuesday's opening game: the ceaselessly celebrated behemoth that couldn't stay within 30 points of Duke.

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.

Notre Dame 84, UIC 67: Freshmen Nate Laszewski, Robby Carmody and Dane Goodwin were among five Notre Dame players to score in double figures as the youthful Fighting Irish cruised by Illinois-Chicago in South Bend, Ind.

Kansas returns a number of key players, including center Udoka Azubuike, who averaged 13 points, seven rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game last season, along with guard Lagerald Vick, who put up 12.1 points and 4.8 rebounds per contest.

When recapping what happened, it now seems silly to put the ranking of No. 4 before the Blue Devils and the No. 2 before the Wildcats. They combined for 83 points on the night, nearly outscoring the Wildcats' entire roster. The game marked the first time Kentucky faced a ranked opponent in a season opener since a 79-71 overtime loss to Clemson in 1995.

The Blue Devils found themselves in deep foul trouble as six players, including Reddish, Williamson and Bolden, picked up two fouls each in the first half.

In Bankers Life Fieldhouse, in the fourth-iteration of the Champions Classic and the first one that was held in Indianapolis, then-No.

"They didn't run any plays", Calipari said of the Blue Devils.
