ESPN Tip-Off Marathon: No. 4 Duke Blue Devils vs. No. 5 Kansas Jayhawks preview


The main event of the State Farm Champions Classic on Tuesday night will be the one that all college basketball fans have waited for. While the first game between Kentucky and Michigan State features the top two teams in the land facing off against one another, the second match up between the fourth-ranked Duke Blue Devils and the fifth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks features arguably the two best young stars in the game of basketball, period.

Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins and Duke freshman Jabari Parker will take the court against one another in what may be, aside from the tournament, the most watched game of the season.

While both teams have only played one game, Parker unquestionably had the better debut performance of the two on Friday night. In the 111-77 win over Davidson, Parker dropped in 22 points, including going a perfect 3-of-3 from beyond the arch.

Wiggins didn’t have quite the night Parker had in his debut against ULM, but he wasn’t terrible by any means, scoring 16 on the night.

Tuesday night, though, the two studs will collide on the court and go head-to-head in what should be a game full of amazing highlights by the time it’s all said and done.

Here’s all the info that you’ll need to catch Tuesday night’s exciting match up:

Date: Nov. 12
