Three things to watch in Tuesday's Champions Classic games

Michigan State forward Jaren Jackson Jr. drives to the basket against Hillsdale's Gordon Behr during their exhibition college basketball game at Breslin Center in East Lansing on Friday

The game is to be the first of two in the annual Champions Classic in Chicago, with a game with Kansas and Kentucky following soon afterward. Defensively, Duke yields 68.6 points against the opposing teams. Whether it's veteran Duke, young MSU, steady Kentucky or exciting Kansas, all of these teams bring something different to the table.

"It was a special night, to even be part of this team and to go out and play hard for that and to win this game for him", freshman big man Marvin Bagley III said.

No single team has dominated the Champions Classic over its six-year existence, but Kentucky owns the best record of any of the four teams at 4-2. "Not let the moment defeat them".

"It's just gonna be fun going against a guy like [Bagley], just because he's going to push me", Jackson said in a statement on Friday, according to Land of 10, "I've got to focus in".

Duke tuned up with home romps against Elon and Utah Valley as Krzyzewski has now coached a team ranked No. 1 in 225 games. Grayson Allen contributed 18 points while Trevon Duval added 15 points and 12 assists. "I think there's more to come, I'm just not sure how many". Neither team will pass the victor of the Michigan State-Duke game, and the loser should remain in the top 10.

The Spartans also have key newcomers, so the fresh faces won't all be wearing Duke uniforms.

Gregg Harper (R-MS) noted that "sexual harassment is a serious problem in our society and Congress is not immune from this issue". A Republican congresswoman says she was recently told by a trusted source that a member of Congress exposed himself to a staffer.

Michigan State has not won a national title since 2000. Duke won again previous year at home in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, with Allen scoring a game-high 24 points.

Krzyzewski declined to speak with the media about his latest achievement so he could keep the focus on the game, but that didn't stop his players from expressing their admiration for their coach.

Where are this year's games being played? That game this year is technically the undercard, No. 1 Duke vs.

The Spartans (1-0) easily put away North Florida 98-66 in their solitary Week 1 fixture and swingman Miles Bridges and Co. are well-motivated and excited about this big-time matchup.

In between the two games, ESPN will also air a showcase of the latest College Football Playoff rankings, expected to air around 9 PM ET. That includes a 1999 Final Four semifinal conquest of the Spartans.
