Even the National Basketball Association took notice of Duke's 118-84 dismantling of lottery pipeline Kentucky.

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said the intent is to return to using a man-to-man set-up as the primary defense after last year's freshman-heavy team ended up in zone as its main defense.

The most recent sports headlines delivered to your inbox every morning. The players had splintered, Calipari said Tuesday night.

Barrett had a game-high 33 points, to go with six assists.

Kentucky just had no answer for Duke's big three and suffered the worst loss in the John Calipari UK era (the previous biggest was 30 points at Tennessee in 2013).

Despite their desires to be a competitive team, the Cavs have played their way to a 1-10 overall record through the early stages of this season.

"My nerves were pretty calm", Williamson said about his attitude entering Tuesday's 118-84 victory and his debut as a college player.

"We didn't force many turnovers in the two exhibition games", said Calipari afterward. "We know what we have". Reid Travis found a way to contribute 22 points on 6-for-8 shooting from the field and 9-for-13 at the foul line and seven rebounds.

12-10 - Kentucky's lead in the all-time series with Duke. While there was plenty of attention on top-flight freshmen R.J. Barrett and Cameron Reddish, Zion Williamson produced the biggest reaction from coast to coast, putting on an absolute show of athleticism and force in his first game as a college player.

Kentucky only got as close as 27 until the waning moments.

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. We just said how we can't really wait to get out and play in front of everybody. The freshmen backcourt duo of Devon Dotson and Quentin Grimes was the highlight for the Jayhawks. "We were just thinking about playing for the University of Kentucky and playing hard". 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. I know that it's only the first game, but this was Kentucky - a basketball blue blood in itself as LSU is probably still a Top 5 team playing in another rugged SEC. Jones had seven assists while Barrett collected six. Kansas picked up its third straight victory in the Classic and improved to 15-1 in openers under coach Bill Self - on a night the Jayhawks were in control nearly the entire way.

"They were just better than us".

He even hit us with a lovely in and out dribble leading to a long pull-up two during the game.

But Cassius Winston missed a layup for Michigan State, Kansas grabbed the rebound and Grimes sealed it by making 1 of 2 free throws.

"C-A-T-S, Cats, Cats, Cats", exclaimed the crowd midway through the second half.

"It's a good way for us to see where we are and it's fun", DeLaurier said of the season opener against the No. 2 Wildcats. Once Coach Cal figures out which style of play fits this team the best and which lineups work better than the others, it should be a special season to watch. 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.
