Duke is one of the top ranked teams…again. They are led by a tremendous group of first year players and this is game one. It should be interesting.
Kentucky also has a nice group of freshmen but they also have some “veterans” too. This one is basically a coin flip so it should be entertaining.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke always recruits well but this year might be the best they ever have. They have gotten big contributions from freshman before too but no class has been expected to do as much.
RJ Barrett was the top recruit this season. A smooth wing scorer that if everything plays to form will be the top player in the 2019 NBA Draft. This will be a fun unveiling.
Cam Reddish and Zion Williamson were also top level prospects. Any one of these three is capable of becoming an instant sensation and I think generally their games fit well together. We will see.
The Blue Devils do not have a ton of contributors coming back but the guys who are were also highly touted guys like Marques Bolden. It will be interesting to see how quickly it all comes together.
Kentucky also has top recruits but the main reason there is a lot of buzz about UK this season is that their roster is a lot more balanced than it has been the last few seasons. History shows that when that happens they are much better.
PJ Washington, Nick Richards and Quade Green were all highly touted a year ago and will come into the season with advantage over this year’s top recruits. They contributed and will be in bigger roles this season.
UK has not had a ton of transfers under coach John Calipari because they recruit so well. Still Reid Travis was a standout at Stanford and should have little trouble adjusting to the SEC from the Big 12. He is just an effective player. Period.
Kentucky still has its share on unproven talent led by guard Immanuel Quickley but I think we will see less ups and down this season. Perhaps starting tonight.

Free Duke Blue Devils vs. Kentucky Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
Two schools of thought on this one. Even though this is a short spread it might be the only time you get Duke at this kind of value all season long.
The other is that experience has to count for something doesn’t it. Kentucky might be primed for a really big year starting tonight.
