Michigan State will be up against Duke’s stacked roster and leadership with Grayson Allen in his senior season. Duke has a lot of momentum after decisive victories over Elon and Utah Valley, which notched Coach K’s 1000th career victory. Duke and Michigan State are both 3-3 in the State Farm Champions Classic.

#7 (#5) Kentucky @ #4 (#5) Kansas – Game held in Chicago – ESPN 8:30PM

Kansas will be looking to improve their resume with a win over Kentucky tonight, in which Kentucky is having their early season struggles. After a hard fought victory over Utah Valley and a slim win at home against Vermont, Kentucky has a lot to prove and a lot to lose going into their third game of the season. The Jayhawks are the favorite, coming back with veteran leadership in Devonte’ Graham and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk. Newcomers Billy Preston, Malik Newman and Marcus Garrett will be a big part in this game too.
