Duke is one of the younger teams in basketball, with four freshman surrounding Grayson Allen, the lone senior in the starting lineup, and certainly the biggest villain in basketball.

"You've got to play good teams. And he's going to draw a lot of attention from the defense".

Izzo started his cast of sophomores and freshman Jaren Jackson with his experienced group of Kenny Goins, Matt McQuaid, Gavin Schilling and Tum Tum Nairn Jr. coming off the bench.

Although the Spartans were an inexperienced and youthful team a season ago, they're no stranger to the big games on the biggest stages.

Or as Utah Valley coach Mark Pope - a key member of UK's 1996 national champs - said after his team fell 99-69 at Duke on Saturday night, 24 hours after Pope's team threw a scare into the Wildcats at Rupp Arena: "This is a really good Duke team".

But college basketball is the biggest victor, if only because it is one of the too few times before conference play begins that we get a chance to see the sport's traditional powerhouses square off in the same neutral-court environment where they can face each other come March. So you can't put too much attention on Miles Bridges, even though he is really good. "They're really physical inside, they have a couple of guards who are assassins from the perimeter, they have a point guard that's really a play-making point guard and who kind of has got enough savvy to pick and choose his times".

Tuesday's game will be a test for the Blue Devils.

The late night talk show had been in reruns since November 3 when Jimmy had canceled that night's taping to tend to his mother in the hospital.

Duke received 33 first-place votes.

"They have two knockdown shooters that are shooting way over 50 percent from the three and arguably the No. 1 player in the country in Bagley", Izzo said. I didn't realize how good (Vermont) was until I watched the tape. "It'll be a hell of a night".

Izzo told reporters in East Lansing on Monday that his 1-10 record against Krzyzewski and Duke bothers him "every day".

The Blue Devils have gotten off to a 2-0 start this season after defeating Elon and Utah Valley, giving head coach Mike Krzyzewski 1,000 wins as the head coach for the school. The website projects that Duke freshman big man Marvin Bagley will go third, freshman power forward Wendell Carter eighth and freshman wing Gary Trent Jr.at No. 15.

But the Spartans will provide more of a challenge for the Blue Devils. "We should have nothing to worry about".

With both teams winning convincingly in their home openers on Friday, Tuesday's matchup features the 42nd 1-vs-2 matchup in the AP Poll's history.
