It returns just two double-figure scorers, but freshman Quentin Grimes is projected to be a lottery pick and should be a huge influence, though nearly certainly a "one and done". "We have to do some soul searching", Calipari said after the game.
Calipari had previously suffered a 33-point loss to West Virginia while he was at UMass and a 32-point loss during his time in the National Basketball Association. In the end, the Kansas Jayhawks showed why they're the No. 1 team in the country by holding off a second-half surge from the Spartans for a 92-87 win.
Duke's newcomers never doubted they could win this convincingly.
"I feel like as we mature we will be able to take blows like that (and come back)". "We know what we have. Hopefully we'll also raise our level that maybe we haven't seen yet, too, going there".
Freshman Keldon Johnson led Kentucky with 23 while grad transfer Reid Travis scored 22 in his Wildcats debut. This will be a close game at the half with Kansas pulling away late. Kansas shot under 20 percent from the field and scored 12 second half points. Kentucky shaved the deficit to 12 on one occasion and 13 on another but could get no closer. I think the way we go into that game really helps us moving forward. "I haven't lost faith in my guys. We've still got a good group". That's the Kentucky Wildcats.
Duke's dominance of Kentucky also added another chapter to Krzyzewski's recent stronghold on the one-and-done talent pool.

He added: "You might be surprised after hearing this announcement, and honestly speaking I'm a little surprised myself". It's all about me going out there and displaying my skills against another skillful fighter.

Dean said the suspect had an extended magazine for his gun, and it was not clear whether he reloaded during the attack. I look up-the security guard is dead. 'I know where I'm going when I die, so I wasn't anxious to sacrifice myself'.
The Blue Devils' fabulous freshmen collectively laughed as if that mattered on Tuesday night.
The Jayhawks are a definite contender for a team that could upset Duke simply because they're equally as, if not more, talented than the Blue Devils this season.
Notre Dame 84, UIC 67: Freshmen Nate Laszewski, Robby Carmody and Dane Goodwin were among five Notre Dame players to score in double figures as the youthful Fighting Irish cruised by Illinois-Chicago in South Bend, Ind. Michigan State went out and they added three four-star recruits. Marcus Bingham Jr. from Grand Rapids, MI, Foster Loyer from Clarkston, MI, and Gabe Brown from Belleville, MI.
Kentucky shot only 44.1 percent from the field (26 of 59) and was just 4-for-17 from deep.
1st - Loss by a Calipari UK squad in a season opener and the first time the Cats have been under.500 during his time in Lexington. Charlie Moore sat out his transfer season a year ago, and he averaged 12 points and 3.5 assists as a freshman at Cal. Moore or Devon Dotson should get the start alongside Grimes in the backcourt. The Blue Devils only committed four turnovers compared with Kentucky's 15.
Tipoff for the Spartans' matchup with the Jayhawks is at 7 p.m. EST at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, and will be televised on ESPN. The Blue Devils are unique and risky everywhere. "He said all you guys hit the genetic lottery but Zion hit it twice".
