Next Tuesday we face Duke in the Champions Classic, and we aren’t talking about it. UK Football has been my primary focus, but for the next couple hours I’m going to focus on basketball.
Don’t get me wrong, Duke will be pretty good by the end of the year. Not now, not next week, not next month. They will be starting four freshman, and three of their top four players all play the same position.
We have more returning talent with the exception of maybe the twins coming back. We have the monster Reid Travis. We have a sharp shooter in Tyler Herro. Our big play grown man basketball, and Duke can’t stop those guys.
Tyler Herro will be Player of the Game with 32 points, 21 coming beyond the arc. UK wins 81-68!
