I know the football season isn't over yet, but basketball is kicking off.

The Champions Classic kicks off tonight in Indianapolis.

#10 Michigan State -#1 Kansas.

#2 Kentucky- #4 Duke

 

Tickets sold out immediately.

It's on ESPN

Kansas prevails 92-87, but Spartans played well.  Izzo would rather lose a close one to an excellent team, than to beat up on an inferior team.  That philosophy pays off in March.

I watched IU beat up on Chicago State.

Wanted to see Romeo Langford play.  Looks like some Assembly Hall first time jitters to start but he came out of them. He needs to work on those free throws though.

I was impressed with two new faces Rob Phinisee and Evan Fitzner.

 

Even more impressed to see the four mascots of The Champions Classic teams visit our local Childrens hospital while they were here.

I'm sure Romeo will only be there for a couple years.

 

I was really impressed with Duke.

They crushed Kentucky by 34. Duke starts four freshmen and three are supposed to be the top 3 picks in the NBA draft next year.

And they sure seemed to play together well, well coached. 

This new Duke team gave me a different feeling than I normally have about them. I like the school, coach K is a great guy, but I got tired of all their winning over the years, I just got tired of them. But these new guys seem different. I actually was pulling for them from the start (I'm genetically programmed to want anyone to beat Ky) 😀

Unranked Indiana is kicking the crap out of #24 Marquette. They sure look good for not being ranked. I hope Langford hangs around a while.

I was thinking a #24 ranked team would give the Hoosiers a closer game.

IU is pretty beat up injury wise, I look forward to when they get healthy and the opponents get stronger.

Stomped is a good term for what Michigan did to Villinova and the Nova players were a bit chippy and surprised it appeared by there actions.

#8 MSU is man-handling #17 UCLA.  Unless Spartans collapse in second half, Chuck’s Tarheels won’t have the honor of facing MSU in the tournament final.

 

UCLA vs UNC tomorrow at 4pm will be interesting. @Tarheel

 

Texas vs MSU at 6:30 will be even more interesting.  Right @Jeff Matthews?
