State Farm Champions Classic

Top Ranked Duke and 2nd Ranked Michigan State Meet in Champions Classic

The Michigan State Spartans and the Duke Blue Devils will open the 2017 State Farm Champions Classic on Tuesday when they battle at United Center. Duke’s young standouts will have their first test when the top-ranked Blue Devils meet No. 2 Michigan State.

Tonight will be an introduction to the country of some of these new college stars. Both games will be full of them.

Oddsmakers opened the Blue Devils as -1.5-point favorites versus the Spartans, while the game’s total opened at 156. The total has inched up to 158 while the spread has stayed the same.

The teams met in a 2015 Final Four game. Duke won, freshman Grayson Allen making an impact off the bench. Duke won again last year at home in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Allen scoring a game-high 24 points.

Duke leads the series 11-2, winning the past six meetings.

Champions Classic Ready for Duke’s Young Guns

Duke tuned up with home romps against Elon and Utah Valley. Mike Krzyzewski has now coached a team ranked No. 1 in 225 games. Coach K also won his 1,000th career game.

Duke freshman guard Trevon Duval has 20 assists and one turnover over his first two games.

Allen a senior and is the only Duke player to play in last year’s Michigan State game.

Duke has been in No. 1 vs. No. 2 games six times. They have a 3-3 record. That includes the 1999 Final Four semifinal win over the Spartans.

Spartans Have Young Talent for Champions Classic as Well

Michigan State was a 98-66 winner in their most recent outing at home against the North Florida Ospreys. They covered the -31.5-point spread as favorites.

Miles Bridges is a preseason All-American who scored 20 points to go with 10 rebounds in the season opener. Jaren Jackson Jr. is the top newcomer for the Spartans

Michigan State is 1-1 when involved in a game with the top two teams, with the victory four years ago in the Champions Classic against No. 1 Kentucky.
