Default Who wins these...

...tomorrow night?

#1 Kentucky vs. #2 Michigan St
#4 Duke vs. #5 Kansas

I believe we could see Mich St in the Coaches vs. Cancer if we both win/lose our initial game there, and obviously will see KU at least twice. Hoping those two can spring mild upsets.

It's so hard to predict these early season games. I love izzo and Gary Harris is a stud I think they suprise a young Kentucky team early. Love all the talent in Lawrence but I think they will have some issues at the point so I'll take Duke. The way I've been picking them lately though I'm bound to miss on both.

Since it's so early in the season and I mean very early, I'm gonna go with Sparty because they have been there before and have experience while UK has the majority of its' roster playing their 3rd collegiate game. The KU Duke game seems like a toss-up since both teams feature top heralded freshman as main components, but I like the fact that Duke has other guys like Quinn Cook who have been in big games before so ill go with Duke.

I hope MSU wins cause if we were to play them in the Coaches Vs Cancer (which would require us beating Seton Hall) it would only be beneficial if they kept winning

I think Duke is better than KU right now.

That UK vs MSU game should be amazing.

MSU is a three point favorite. Like others said, if Kentucky is better now, watch out. That said, Izzo's approach seems to de-emphasize winning these early season big games (and they have multiple pretty much every year). They run so many set pieces and play so many guys early that they often look much worse in November than they would if they just tried to play their best now rather than in March.

Yeah I agree about Duke, but I still hope KU wins. Hope Kentucky beats MSU too.

I like MSU better than UK.

And while I should root for the Big 12 over Duke, I'm not the Duke hater that a lot of folks are.

If these games are in NY, then Dook's the team to beat. Officiating won't let them lose.

I feel like the experience of MSU will get a young Kentucky squad tonight. But give this same Kentucky team 5 months to get used to the college game, and in March I wouldn't bet against them.

Michigan State and Duke win tonight, but KU and Kentucky may very well be the better teams come March.

Randle is a beast.

I still think Parker is the best Pro in this class, but Randle is a load.

Parker looked better than Wiggins

Randle was awesome. He looked like an in shape tiny gallon and what gallon could have been

My Boston Celtics need to do a better job of tanking, b/c there is going to be some serious talent at the top of this draft. Wiggins. Parker. Randle. And probably at least a couple more names.

I thought Parker looked the best offensively, but his defense and footspeed is lacking as of now to guard the perimeter. However, I think coach K will get him there. Randle looks like the most ready if they were to play in the NBA right now. Wiggins looked the worst out of them, but he still had an efficient 20 pts and you can just see the gobs of potential he has. I think Wiggins or Randle will be the best pro out of the group. I know it's very early, but these freshmen are starting to prove why this class was so hyped up.

Also Mich. St. looked so much quicker and faster than Kentucky it was scary. I think this Kentucky team is more suited to use their size and strength to slow the game down and work it to Randle on nearly every possession.

There's a good chance we'll play that Michigan State team. Talk about a track meet! Both OU and MSU get up and down the floor.
