Michigan State vs. Duke

Michigan State vs. Duke

No. 1 Duke remained at the top after an 88-81 victory Tuesday night at the United Center against No. 2 Michigan State in what promises to remain one of the most memorable games of the season.

I do still believe that the Blue Devils fall to Michigan State, even though this team is firing on all cylinders. The Spartans came in looking like the better team but I think this game was won with coaching. "We had the game in our hands and we gave it away". We said (we can't have) turnovers, foolish ones. "It's early, we got a lot to learn, a lot to grow as a team".

Rarely do we get a matchup to start the college basketball season as we do with the showdown between the No. 1 Duke Blue Devils and No. 2 Michigan Spartans - and I have a feeling that it will not disappoint.

While the rest of the Blue Devils players were taking shots and warming up for the second period, Bagley III was visibly having trouble opening his right eye. He finished with only four points while Jackson had 19 points and seven rebounds for the Spartans.

Torey Lovullo, Paul Molitor Named Managers of the Year
Shortly after the playoff loss to the New York Yankees , Molitor earned a new three-year contract to continue managing the Twins. The Diamondbacks were swept in a three-game series at Minnesota in mid-August, outscored 27-8 at Target Field.

Wendell Carter Jr. added 12 points and 12 rebounds, helping Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski improve to 12-1 in his career against Michigan State.

"We didn't cut out. We've just got to make sure we're ready and make sure we're locked in and ready to go". "So, it was on us".

His team is left picking up the pieces of another loss to Duke and another loss in a showcase early season game - one it felt as though it had every opportunity to win.

"We haven't faced zone much, give them credit", Izzo said.

Sydney ferry named 'Ferry McFerryface' after jokey 'Boaty McBoatface' is overruled
Hundreds nominated the name in a survey that asked locals to name a fleet of six new ferries for the city's harbour. The global online trend was started by a suggestion from a former BBC radio host for Boaty McBoatface in 2016.

He returned to the bench for the second half but did not play. We couldn't get a big enough lead to get them out of it. "They played all right, but we really lost this game". "How long it was, how many athletes they have". "Once we got out there we got a feel for it a bit. We got good looks, now we've just got to knock shots down". The second game between No. 7 Kentucky and No. 4 Kansas (10 p.m. - midnight) delivered a Nielsen total live audience of 2,661,000 viewers, up 13% from last year's second game (Duke vs. Kansas). That will end the latest three-year contract, but all four schools have indicated they'd like to continue playing.

"I'm sure players are excited about it and I wouldn't want it any other way", Izzo said.

"That's what seniors do in college basketball", Bridges said of Allen's performance. If you were the Blue Devils you would have four freshmen trying to locate their man in transition against one of the best fast-break teams in the country.

Keenum to start at QB for Vikings Sunday
The Vikings have won five straight games with some strong performances by Keenum, though, so a change now would be odd . Case Keenum completed 21 of 29 passes for 304 yards and four touchdowns against two interceptions.
