And if the Blue Devils, who made 54 percent of their shots and 47 percent of their three-point attempts, continue to put on similar displays as the season continues - next up is a home game on Sunday at 1 p.m. against Army, Coach K's alma mater and site of his first head-coaching job - they will be the source of headaches for coaches who will be tasked with figuring out how to slow down such a phenomenal group of freshmen and their impressive supporting cast. The Blue Devils have won 19 consecutive openers. On both sides of the floor, on the glass and on the perimeter, the junior captain was locked in and hungry.

As it is with one-and-done players, how will they marinate during a college season and what will they become as a unit?

1 Kentucky announced to the world their cruel intentions.

Duke overwhelmed Kentucky from the game's opening tip, showing its offensive versatility and efficiency while building a 21-point lead before 10 minutes had been played.

"I learned something about my team tonight, " Spartans coach Tom Izzo said.

No more excuses for Chelsea striker Morata
The win means that City are now top of the table, two points clear of Chelsea in second and Liverpool in third. That cushion over the chasing pack makes champions City [1.41] to make it two titles on the trot .

Keldon Johnson scored 23 points to lead Kentucky and graduate transfer Reid Travis added 22 for the Wildcats. Chasing him around screens, it's tiring but it's a lot of fun. It was a strong start for the freshman. The 6-foot-8 forward ended the night with a career-high nine points and showed up as a deep threat in addition to a finisher at the rim. Duke's physical advantage over, again, a team with multiple future first-round picks on it was so startling I find myself questioning, in the warm light of day, if I really saw what I thought I saw last night - a massacre that wasn't so much cold-blooded as accidental.

Kansas controlled the paint for most of the game and used a 43% three-point shooting effort to build their lead and hold Michigan State off. Central at Rupp Arena. They needed their two-best defenders on Barrett and Williamson, and their point guard needed to guard Tre Jones - we'll get to him in a second - which left Tyler Herro to try and slow down Reddish.

Williamson, Barrett and Reddish combined for 45 points in the first half, outscoring Kentucky's entire squad by three, and it was a 20-minute window filled with highlight plays.

"They told us that every game we go to is going to be like that", freshman R.J. Barrett said of the leadership White and fellow captain Javin DeLaurier provided. The Blue Devils are going to dominate college basketball coverage this year, and that will get exhausting. For these four teams, playing quality competition on a big stage provides a welcome opportunity to learn what they do well and what they need to improve upon.
