Keldon Johnson led the Cats with 23 points. Visit SportsLine now to see which side you should be all over Tuesday, all from the model that's up more than $5,200 on college basketball picks the past two years.

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.

The returners from Kansas seem to boast a bit more than that of Michigan State, and it will help them to a win in this season opening game. Duke had neutral site wins over Michigan State, Texas and Florida as well as a road win over IN last November.

Despite the buzz surrounding the top-five matchup, junior co-captains Javin DeLaurier and Jack White are keeping things in perspective for the fourth-ranked Blue Devils, who ultimately hope to cut down the nets at the Final Four in Minneapolis on April 8.

According to Jeff Goodman, Duke's players - along with head coach Mike Krzyzewski - took in the Indiana Pacers vs. Houston Rockets game. "Kentucky has not played well at all".

Realizing he may have said a little too much, Kerr then says he going to change the subject before he gets fined.

Washington was an invaluable contributor in the tournament, averaging almost 14 points per game and shooting 63 percent from the floor in Kentucky's three tournament games.

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.

About 4,800 migrants are sheltered in a sports complex in Mexico City, some 600 miles (965 kilometres) from the US border. It's unknown whether those in the caravan, many fleeing violence in their homeland, plan to cross illegally.

"Maybe because of where they've placed it, this has become a huge event", Kentucky coach John Calipari said Sunday.

- Barrett got to the rim at will, was a dynamo in transition and hit 3-pointers if needed. It was so bad in fact that the United Kingdom fans who packed the arena were already heading to the exits with 11:02 left and Kentucky trailing 91-56.

Williamson is a 6-foot-7, 285-lb forward who was the No. 2 high school prospect in the country when he landed at Duke. He is must see television.

- Reddish is an explosive offensive player with the ability to score a variety of ways. Goins posted a double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds, doing all the dirty work for the Michigan State.

How bad did it get? "I've never seen such a drop-off between the top two". "This place was electric before the game", Bilas said. Duke plays Kentucky tomorrow night in the Champions Classic here in Indy.

The highly coveted McDonald's All-American from New Albany, Indiana scored the his first career point for Indiana from the foul line to extend the Hoosiers' lead in a game where they trailed just once, for a total of 13 seconds. It's the first time the top three recruits of any class went to one school, and unlike other freshman classes, this super team chose itself. That's not the numbers anyone was expecting from three returning players off last year's Elite Eight team.

Carmody - who became the first freshman to start an opener for Notre Dame since Torin Francis in 2002 - added 11 points in 14 minutes. Graduate transfer Reid Travis added 22 for the Wildcats, who had won all nine previous season openers under Calipari. I think we might have that here. It had 15 turnovers to Duke's four and gave up 27 points off turnovers, 56 points in the paint and 26 fast break points in what has to be one of the worst defensive performances for a Calipari team. Grimes and Dotson each made one of two free throws to make it a two-possession game with under 20 seconds left to bolster the Jayhawks to a win.
