World News – US Champions Classic: Michigan State Wins Duke, Kansas, Kentucky Wins


. .

Four top 25 men’s basketball teams competed in one of the biggest regular season events on the college basketball calendar – the Champions Classic. Duke and Michigan State met in Durham, North Carolina, while Kansas and Kentucky met in Indianapolis.

Before Tuesday’s meeting, Duke and Michigan State had met 16 times, 11 of which were played on neutral courts. The state of Michigan was 3-0 all-time at Cameron Indoor Stadium and entered the 2020 Champions Classic. With a six-point win from behind, the Spartans won for the first time in Duke’s home stadium.

It was only the Michigan State’s fourth win against Duke and the first since beating the Blue Devils in the Elite Eight in 2019.

The state of Michigan had an offensive rebound percentage of 33 percent and a percentage of 78 percent. 6 percent defensive rebound percentage that exceeds the Duke percentage of 21. 4 percent and 66. 7 percent.

Overall, the Spartans were plus-10 in rebounds (46 to 36), led by strikers Joey Hauser and Malik Hall, who both scored 10 rebounds at team level.

The state of Michigan made only 5 out of 20 3-point attempts. Joey Hauser hit two of his three tries and three other players made 3-pointer apiece, but the Spartans saw three times as many mistakes as from deep.

Hurt, Duke’s super sophomore, settled on a 21-point double-double with 13 rebounds, which led the Blue Devils in both categories. It was only the second double-double of his career and it marked his career high at rebounds by three.

Three other Duke players hit double digits – Jalen Johnson and Jaemyn Brakefield with 11 each and Jordan Goldwire with 10.

All Kentucky Scholars are at least 6-3 and seven of the Wildcats’ nine top scorers this season are 6-6 or greater. This year’s edition of the ‘Cats is long, fiery, and athletic, and that athleticism was seen in Indy, where it blocked 12 shots, including eight from freshman Isaiah Jackson. Jackson finished with seven points, 12 rebounds and eight blocks.

When Kansas found itself in a double digit hole about the middle of the first half, Kansas coach Bill Self dispatched five guards and wings without a really tall man to counter Kentucky’s athleticism.

Ultimately, it was a striker, Jalen Wilson, who led the Jayhawks to victory with a breakout performance of 23 points and 10 rebounds. Wilson was a Redshirt newbie last season and nearly matched his last two games (25 points) in just one game against a talented Wildcats squad.

Kansas security guard Marcus Garrett, reigning National Defensive Player of the Year, wasn’t feeling well on Tuesday – he tested negative for COVID-19 multiple times, according to the ESPN broadcast – and his status was uncertain before the game, but Garrett did switched itself through.

Braun, a 6-6 year old security guard, led Kansas with 13 rebounds, including six at the end of the offensive. The Jayhawks grabbed 22 of their 47 misses, making an impressive 46. Offensive rebound rate of 8 percent.

Kansas and Kentucky combined shot 8 out of 42 from 3-point range, which is a 3-point percentage of 19 percent. Ten players missed every 3-pointer they tried, including four starters from Kentucky while Jalen Wilson of Kansas and Davion Mintz of Kentucky were both 5–2. Mintz hit a running 3-pointer in the closing moments, which after review brought Kentucky’s deficit down to 63-62. Kansas security guard Ochai Agbaji ended the game with two free throws, then Mintz’s game-winning 3-point attempt was missed and sealed the victory for the Jayhawks.
