Kansas meets up with Duke in the sixth edition of the Champions Classic, coming to you this year from New York City. The Jayhawks flew directly to New York from Honolulu following their season-opening loss to Indiana, and so have had several days to try and recover from any travel fatigue.
Duke is expected to be missing three high profile players, including Marques Bolden, Harry Giles, and Jayson Tatum. None of the three have played in either of Duke’s two season-opening victories.
Regardless, the Jayhawks will have their hands full trying to slow down the preseason #1 Blue Devils. Grayson Allen vs the KU backcourt will be a fun matchup to watch, as will how well KU matches up against senior forward Amile Jefferson.
However the game goes, once again, this isn’t college football. It’s not lose and you’re done. It’s not even lose two and you’re done. The season is long. A win doesn’t mean much, and a loss doesn’t mean much. That said, putting a beat-down on the AP #1 would feel pretty, pretty good. Go get ‘em, boys.
