The NCAA Men’s Basketball season kicked off with a full slate of games last night including two marquee match-ups in prime time.
First the #1 Kansas Jayhawks defeated the #10 Michigan State Spartans 92-87.
Then in the most eye-opening, revealing game of the day, the #4 Duke Blue Devils walloped the #2 Kentucky Wildcats 118 – 84. On full display was Duke’s crop of super freshman athletes, led by 6 ft. 7 power forward Zion Williamson, who has all the makings of the next NBA superstar.
It’s way too early to call and the NCAA tournament is a long ways away, but if Duke stays healthy, they may be the team to beat this year for the National Championship, #4 ranking or not.
