No. 1 Kansas holds off No. 10 Michigan State 92-87

Charlie Moore sat out his transfer season past year, 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. Udoka Azubuike finished with 17 points.

Carmody - who became the first freshman to start an opener for Notre Dame since Torin Francis in 2002 - added 11 points in 14 minutes. Dotson ended the game with 16 points and three assists, shooting 6-of-11.

The game will air live on ESPN, with Dan Shulman calling the play-by-play, Dick Vitale serving as the color analyst and Laura Rutledge on sidelines.

"It's hard because he's a physical player and he puts it up in the ref's hands a lot of the times, as far as the way he's attacking you and he makes it hard to guard without fouling and he puts a lot of pressure at the rim", Travis said about Barrett, who finished 4-for-8 from the free throw line. He led the nation and set the KU and Big 12 single-season record for field goal percentage at 77.0 percent in 2017-18. Kenny Goins leads the way for the Spartans with nine points while the team as a whole is shooting 9 of 26 (32 percent) from the field.

For the third straight year, Duke edged out Kentucky as the top-ranked recruiting class per 24/7 Sports.

"They do travel. And they'll watch this tape more than I watch this tape".

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".

Duke led 34-13 with 10:37 left in the first half.

Quentin Grimes and Devon Dotson carried the Kansas backcourt. "I've never seen such a drop-off between the top two". "We are, and they have some young kids as well". You shouldn't have to play well just because you made shots, and they both made shots. "Obviously he can do a lot better, but he did a lot of nice things". This will be vital for the Jayhawks against the Spartans because of his height and experience advantage over the Michigan State big men. But, yeah, they were both "gamers" tonight. "And Q was fabulous". But the Spartans have a much greater challenge in store as they head to Indianapolis to take on No. 1 Kansas in the first game of the State Farm Champions Classic. "We just have to play our game". "Jack had 11 rebounds and guarded [Tyler] Herro and played tough, just played really tough, so we're proud of the win. Once Coach (Self) went over the game plan, we kind of settled down a little bit". Spurred on by a roster that included a trio of future lottery picks in Karl-Anthony Towns, Devin Booker and Willie Cauley-Stein, the Wildcats absolutely smothered a Kansas that was in the top five of every poll in the country.

The Spartans have covered six of eight all-time meetings, including a 79-73 win over Kansas in the 2015 Champions Classic.
