No. 4 Duke Decimates No. 2 Kentucky Thanks to Fantastic Freshmen

  • Coach K isn't happy with a play

Nobody should be that naive to believe everything people say or take it all to heart.

Not so much Deron Feldhaus.

Just like I didn't know how Kentucky's 2014-15 team would get beaten. It has been a long time since there has been a senior leader in Lexington, and Travis certainly provides the leadership they've lacked the last few seasons.

According to a report from Joe Vardon of The Athletic, Altman was in attendance for Duke's 118-84 victory over Kentucky on Tuesday night with a contingent of Cavs front office officials.

So even if seeing "Duke" on the opponent's jerseys makes the Big Blue Nation's blood pump a little faster, the players may not have the same visceral response. 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. And while the Spartans (0-1) pulled within three with 34 seconds to play thanks to KU's poor free-throw shooting - the team finished 20 for 33 from the stripe, making just 13 of 21 second-half attempts - Dotson and Grimes closed with free-throw makes that sealed the outcome. Though the, they have had the upper hand against the Jayhawks in recent years as they have won four of their last six matchups during both the regular season and NCAA tournament, including two matchups in the Champions Classic.

Like, what the hell did we just watch, and can it be stopped? We don't do no social media on that. "Hopefully we'll also raise our level that maybe we haven't seen yet, too, going there".

I mean, have you seen Zion? Duke's trampling of Kentucky resonated in similar fashion with me. And his he has played extremely well this season with averages of 18 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2 assists per game.

Barrett is clearly a better shot-creator (and maker) than both Sexton and Osman, particularly in the isolation situations that Cleveland is so anemic in.

It took all of one college game for the basketball world to begin buzzing about Duke freshmen R.J. "Things have changed in the, what, close to 30 years (since 1992), with the one-and-dones".

"I think he could be because of his natural ability".

They may reach the playoffs with their current group but barring an unforeseen breakout season from of their younger players, they'll have a quick exit because as of today, their current ceiling is that of a playoff contender. "If they play like that, they're not losing many, if that's who they are".

"It's 'The Shot, '" Feldhaus said. He's a tough on-ball defender that can score when called upon but is more than happy playing as a facilitator; when the guy running the show cares more about winning than his own stats, that's a good thing. But that task will nearly certainly become easier once the ball is finally thrown up on Tuesday night and the regular season gets under way.

"I'm really proud of my guys", said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, "When you start four freshmen, no matter how talented they are, you don't know what they are going to do in this environment against an outstanding team and a great program and they responded".
