Captain Jack White displays leadership and vast improvement for Duke men's basketball

Coach K isn't happy with a play

In one game, Williamson, 18, proved much of the ballooning hype surrounding his arrival on the NCAA basketball scene is real, as did fellow blue-chip recruits R.J. Barrett, who scored a Duke freshman record 33 points, and Cam Reddish, who added 22 points. And although most voters are likely to refrain from putting Duke in the top spot in next week's AP Top 25 Poll - after all, No. 1 Kansas did take care of its business by beating No. 10 Michigan State, 92-87, in the first game of the Champions Classic - that also seems a bit silly after what the nation just witnessed.

The Cats were led by freshman wing Keldon Johnson with 23 points and Travis with 22. The X-factor player here could be forward Reid Travis (19.5 ppg, 8.7 rpg), a graduate transfer from Stanford.

The highly-anticipated game between two of the nation's most successful college programs was never close.

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

The Blue Devils' fabulous freshmen collectively laughed as if that mattered on Tuesday night. Duke notched its 100th point of the night with a whopping 7:38 still to play, and the 118 points it finished with smashed the previous record of 94 (set by Kansas, against Duke, back in 2013).

Barrett was 13 of 26 from the field with six assists and four rebounds, and Williamson went 11 of 13 from the field with seven rebounds. That's the Kentucky Wildcats.

That overall display - in a game that the Blue Devils entered as a slight underdog - is sure to be the primary topic amongst college basketball fans at water coolers in offices across the country for days to come.

"They're a very good team", Calipari said.

Kentucky: Tyler Herro was the only other player to reach double figures. Dude was BEASTING, scoring 28 points (on 11-13 shooting) and grabbing 7 rebounds.

Starting four freshmen, Duke shot 54 percent while making 12 3-pointers. The game marked the first time Kentucky faced a ranked opponent in a season opener since a 79-71 overtime loss to Clemson in 1995.

A Williamson layup and Reddish 3-pointer in the first minute of the second half pushed Duke's lead to 64-42 and caused Kentucky coach John Calipari to call a timeout. Duke improved to 12-2 all-time in Indianapolis and 3-0 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Kentucky hosts Southern Illinois in the Wildcats' regular-season home opener Friday night at 6 p.m.

The fifth starter for Duke, junior big man Marques Bolden, did exactly what head coach Mike Krzyzewski has been asking him to do since he arrived in Durham: he snatched loose balls in the paint with authority.
