Barrett scores 33, No. 4 Duke blows out No. 2 Kentucky in season opener

Coach K isn't happy with a play

Barrett was 13 of 26 from the field with six assists and four rebounds, and Williamson went 11 of 13 from the field with seven rebounds. "They were just better than us".

"I said in one of the huddles, 'You guys thought this was going to be easy.' I haven't had many of these games, but I've had a few, and the most you learn from it is they wanted it more than we wanted it", Calipari said.

College basketball was treated to a marquee opening night doubleheader at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

"Really proud of my guys", Krzyzewski said.

Three Duke players scored at least 22 points while freshman Keldon Johnson tallied 23 points for Kentucky in the losing effort.

In one game, Williamson, 18, proved much of the ballooning hype surrounding his arrival on the NCAA basketball scene is real, as did fellow blue-chip recruits R.J. Barrett, who scored a Duke freshman record 33 points, and Cam Reddish, who added 22 points. Kentucky shaved the deficit to 12 on one occasion and 13 on another but could get no closer.

Duke handed Calipari the worst loss of his coaching career at United Kingdom and he let his players know midway of the second half he had seen enough.

"[Grimes] came out with a free mind and played his game, " Lawson said. 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. The championship victor compared the teenager to none other than the best player in the world, LeBron James.

They just struggled to deliver the knockout punch.

Barrett scored 20 points in the first half alone and spearheaded Duke's offense throughout the night. The Jayhawks never trailed in the second half.

"This game was supposed to (feature) the top two recruiting classes". They shot 53.8 percent from the field, knocked down 12 3-pointers and ran away from Kentucky in the first half.

Then Cassius Watson missed a layup, Kansas grabbed the rebound and Grimes made 1 of 2 free throws to seal it.

"I learned something about my team tonight, " Spartans coach Tom Izzo said. "If he has that, with the energy he brings to the game, he's definitely gonna be the best".
