College Basketball – Early season blockbuster pits UK vs Duke

UK vs Duke tonight at Champions Classic
UK vs Duke tonight at Champions Classic

Duke is the reigning National Champions and UK has 4 Final Four appearances under Coach Cal. Although it is a matchup UK fans savor against the hated Blue Demons, it it too early to make this a do or die game or make the winner the team to beat this season. In fact, UK is still in the, “getting to know you”, phase of the season. They will, like all Calipari teams, get better as the season goes along.Kentucky, is loaded again with several players who will undoubtedly be heading to the NBA after this season, but it seems as Duke Coach K has welcomed the one and done philosophy. Already set for next year, Coach K has recruited the #1 class with the #2 & #3 recruits. Not to be out done, Calipari has already secured 4 five star recruits to include #4 & #5 recruits De’Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo. UK is not done either as they have 3 more top 10 recruits on their radar.

As always, it is going to be fun at Rupp again this season and next. Sit Back and enjoy the ride.
