college basketballIt’s a big day in college basketball as their are 2 games with top 5 teams facing each other. The #1 Kentucky Wildcats are facing the #2 Michigan State Spartans and the #4 Duke Blue Devils are facing the #5 Kansas Jayhawks.

 

Michigan State Spartans vs. Kentucky Wildcats

In the first game of the night the #1 and #2 teams in the country face off. The Spartans are coming off their first win of the season over McNeese State 98-56. The Wildcats are 2-0 and coming off a 93-63 win over Northern Kentucky.

The Spartans are lead by sophomore guard Gary Harris. He is averaging 20 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists per game this season. The Wildcats are lead by Freshman Forward Julius Randle. So far this year he is averaging 22.5 points, 14.5 rebounds and 2 assists.

 

My Prediction

The Spartans jump out to an early 16-7 lead in the first 8 minutes of the game. The Wildcats come back and go on a 22-6 run to take a 29-22 lead. The Spartans cut the lead to 5 right before halftime and the score is 42-37. In the 2nd half the Wildcats keep it up as they start the half on a 12-4 run increasing their lead to 54-41. But just when the lead looks safe here come the Spartans going on a 16-3 run to cut the lead to 57-54. The teams match scores from that point until Gary Harris hits a 3 pointer to tie the game at 72. Kentucky come right back on a 15 foot jump shot from Julius Randle to give them a 2 point lead. Gary Harris then hits another 3 pointer to give the Spartans a 1 point lead. With 45 seconds left Kentucky misses their shot and the Spartans get the rebound. The Spartans then hit a 12 footer to take a 3 point lead with 15 seconds left. Kentucky comes down but misses their 3 point attempt and Michigan State holds on for the win.

Final Score

Michigan State: 81
Kentucky: 77

 

Duke Blue Devils vs. Kansas Jayhawks

In what might be the best game of the night as the top two highly regarded freshman face off. Jabari Parker leads #4 Duke to face Andrew Wiggins and #5 Kansas. The Blue Devils are coming off an impressive 111-77 win over Davidson. The Jayhawks are coming off a 80-63 win over Louisiana Monroe.

Jabari Parker leads Duke with 22 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists in the only game he played so far this year. On the other side Andrew Wiggins leads Kansas with 16 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 steals in his only game played so far this year.

 

My Prediction

It’s a close game throughout as neither team can gain that big of a lead. The Jayhawks jump out to the biggest lead at 35-30 but Duke come right back and hits a 3 pointer to cut the lead to 35-33. The first half ends and the score is 48-45 Duke on top. In the 2nd half its more of the same as the game stays close. Duke takes its biggest lead of the game on a 3 pointer from Jabari Parker to increase the Blue Devils lead to 7. Kansas comes right back and gets Dukes lead to only 2. The game remains close and with 1:30 left in the game the Jayhawks take a 84-82 lead. Duke comes right back and ties the game at 84. The Jayhawks give the ball to Wiggins and he misses his shot. On the next possession the Blue Devils give the ball to Parker and he hits his shot to give Duke a 2 point lead and stop Kansas on their next shot to win the game.

Final Score

Duke: 86
Kansas: 84
