In the frontcourt, Udoka Azubuike and transfer Dedric Lawson set the tone defensively and controlled the boards for most of the game. "Nobody wanted to lose". "Jack had 11 rebounds and guarded [Tyler] Herro and played tough, just played really tough, so we're proud of the win".

Like, what the hell did we just watch, and can it be stopped?

The Jayhawks were sloppy in a pair of easy exhibition wins. He appeared in all 35 games, starting, 34, and finished third on the team in scoring with 12.4 points and led the team with 7.1 rebounds, adding 1.3 blocks per game in 18.9 minutes. Dotson, another freshman, had 16. "He was the best player on our team tonight".

"It's hard because he's a physical player and he puts it up in the ref's hands a lot of the times, as far as the way he's attacking you and he makes it hard to guard without fouling and he puts a lot of pressure at the rim", Travis said about Barrett, who finished 4-for-8 from the free throw line. He said, 'Let it fly, ' and Q came out and displayed his talent. "He's a great player and he's a great challenge to defend".

The Kansas Jayhawks past year were a team easy to underestimate, or at least easy until one considers the tremendous influence of head coach Bill Self. "The truth", said Smith during a segment of First Take.

Well, Self saw it, and perhaps now, the KU coach believes it.

For the Spartans, this will be the second straight season in which they face off against the top-ranked team in the country in this tournament. Cassius Winston has a big game from 3-point range and Josh Langford will lead all scorers. They ran limited plays and dominated in the lane, barreling past defenders without taking too much time to stop and strategize. "Q (Quentin Grimes) was fabulous".

Online, Dolores also starred in Get Out The Vote videos in English and Spanish, urging Georgia voters to turn out for Abrams. In a statement on Sunday, Kemp's office said they had officially requested the FBI to investigate the matter.

Still, his performance Tuesday was jaw-dropping.

With Dotson, Self recalled asking the point guard a simple question recently: Who does Dotson need to be an extension of on the court? "As we mature, we'll be able to stop those blows and flip it". There's a lot of things, especially Devon, can do, in transition.

With Grimes, Self pointed to a conversation the two had Monday. We'll have to play a lot better than what we have played.

Just like I didn't know how Kentucky's 2014-15 team would get beaten. Can the Jayhawks live up to their hype right off the bat with a decisive victory against the Spartans?

"People have told me in his camp that (Grimes) likes it when the lights are on, that he's a gamer", Self said.

Can you see it coming now?

Duke shot 54.4 percent from the field (43 of 79), including a 12-of-26 night from the 3-point line. Kansas coach Bill Self and Michigan State coach Tom Izzo are two of the best, so the team on the losing side of this game will undoubtedly learn and grow from the defeat to make sure they are equipped to stay at the top of the rankings and to make a push once March comes around.
