Veteran transfer will be x-factor in a Kentucky cover versus Duke

And the feeling I have seeing this Duke team turn Kentucky into early season mid-major fodder is no different then the feeling I had after watching that Kentucky team turn that Kansas team into a group of middle schoolers running offense for the first time: How in the hell is anyone going to beat Duke?

The Blue Devils' fabulous freshmen collectively laughed as if that mattered on Tuesday night. On both sides of the floor, on the glass and on the perimeter, the junior captain was locked in and hungry.

"The untold hero of our team was Jack White", head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "We have to do some soul searching", Calipari said after the game. Four players scored 15 or more points, and it took a late run by the Spartans to make a game.

Kentucky shot only 44.1 percent from the field (26 of 59) and was just 4-for-17 from deep.

A Williamson layup and Reddish 3-pointer in the first minute of the second half pushed Duke's lead to 64-42 and caused Kentucky coach John Calipari to call a timeout. When he goes up against teams that play the 2-3 zone, Williamson is going to have to prove he can consistently hit the outside jumper. Chasing him around screens, it's tiring but it's a lot of fun.

"Built like a tight end, brandishing unnatural agility and explosiveness, Williamson is a truly unique player and arguably boasts the greatest upside of any eligible prospect", gushed Sports Illustrated.

What is this Duke team missing? Central at Rupp Arena.

Duke led by 10 after six minutes and extended the lead to 34-13 less than 10 minutes into the game.

With just two exhibition games under their belts, we did not have a whole lot to go on when breaking down this Kansas team.

Duke's fifth starter alongside its four star freshmen was junior Marques Bolden Tuesday, and though he made a couple of impressive plays in the post, he struggled with foul trouble. Although the younger Jones only scored six points, he was Tyus-like in running the point for 30 minutes without committing a single turnover while dishing out seven assists.
