Bagley already making history at Duke

Julie Jacobson  AP

The win is Krzyzewski's 1073rd overall, which is the most-ever for a coach in men's Division I college basketball history behind former Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim with 1,005 wins. The first game features the Michigan State Spartans and Duke Blue Devils, while the second game pits the Kansas Jayhawks and Kentucky Wildcats.

But Duke (2-0) will have its hands full Tuesday against a team that returns the majority of its rotation players from last season.

"Then again, as Vermont coach John Becker noted late Sunday afternoon following his team's narrow 73-69 loss at Rupp - its first regular-season defeat since a December 2016 loss to Butler - "(Kentucky) is a really talented team and they're going to be a team to be reckoned with for the national championship". Bagley started the season among a handful of prospects capable of going No. 1 and has exceeded the hype through two games, averaging 24.5 points and 10 rebounds.

"It was a special night, to even be part of this team and to go out and play hard for that and to win this game for him", freshman big man Marvin Bagley III said.

The Blue Devils also saw an historic feat, as Coach Mike Kyzyzewski came away with his 1000th win.

"You slow him down; I don't know if you fully stop him", Grayson Allen said on Monday. The guard scored 20 points and recorded 4 rebounds per game. All seven events have featured the same four teams rotating against one another: Michigan State, Duke, Kansas and Kentucky. The Blue Devils had that in recent seasons with Matt Jones, who held Bridges to 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting a year ago in Cameron Indoor Stadium.

That being said, Michigan State had a similar dominating start to the season with a 32-point victory over North Florida.

Seven of the last eight meetings between Michigan State and Duke have been decided by 10 points or less.

Michigan State has not won a national title since 2000. The Spartans are favorites to win the Big Ten over Purdue, Northwestern and others. The first big time basketball game of the season.

"I think we see flashes of our ball movement right now, and it looks really, really good at some points, and then we have some lapses in the game where we get into one-on-one stuff", he said. College Basketball is a big time grind, and the teams change quite a bit between now and the time they play in the NCAA Tournament.

With the duo of freshman Jaren Jackson Jr. and sophomore Nick Ward, Michigan State (1-0) has the physicality to compete with the Blue Devil bigs down low. The final bet for the Champions Classic on Tuesday night is the Duke Blue Devils -1.5 over Michigan State Spartans.
