Veteran transfer will be x-factor in a Kentucky cover versus Duke

What's even more astounding is Williamson isn't even regarded as the best player on the team, with RJ Barrett projected as the no.1 pick for the National Basketball Association draft.

It was the worst loss in terms of point differential at any level ofJohn Calipari's coaching career.

That team went 38-0, and if it wasn't for an absolutely loaded Wisconsin team picking them off in the Final Four, they would have played for a national title with an undefeated, 40-0 season on the line.

The coach said he told freshmen point guard Ashton Hagans and Immanuel Quickley he would be spending more time with them immediately to get "them on the same page with the rest of us".

Barrett led the way with 33 points on 13-of-26 shooting from the field and knocked down three of the Blue Devils' 12 3-pointers.

The Blue Devils' fabulous freshmen collectively laughed as if that mattered on Tuesday night.

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

Those were reporters working with CNN , NBC , other networks. "What would I do without you?" You are a very rude person. Acosta then badgered the president, asking, "Did you demonize immigrants?" Acosta said before Trump interrupted him.

March and the accompanying madness still is months away, but it probably isn't too soon to speculate how good Williamson and these Blue Devils might be this season.

"They were just better than us", Calipari said, per ESPN. That's the Kentucky Wildcats. Most teams don't have that kind of combination, but it's clear Kentucky needs to improve dramatically to keep up with the nation's top teams.

This year's Duke team could prove to be one of Krzyzewski's best. In his 24 minutes of playing time, the 6-8 small forward scored 22 points on 6-of-14 shooting (3-of-8 from 3-point land), three assists, two rebounds and four steals. Kentucky shot 44 percent from the field but allowed the Blue Devils to shoot 54 percent.

No other Duke basketball team in history has ever scored 118 points in a game that was played outside the friendly confines of Cameron Indoor Stadium (117 was the previous high, set by the 1988-89 squad during a win at Miami in which Danny Ferry scored a school-record 58 points).

In Bankers Life Fieldhouse, in the fourth-iteration of the Champions Classic and the first one that was held in Indianapolis, then-No. The Blue Devils outscored United Kingdom by 24 from the arc.

"We really do care", Travis said. He hit - often slammed - 11 of his 13 shots (1-of-1 from three) while snagging seven boards.
