What Duke, Kansas, Michigan State and Kentucky will look like come March

Sure, it was only one night. And it was only one night in November. But these four big-name teams -- Duke, Kansas, Michigan State and Kentucky -- offered glimpses into the future during the Champions Classic. Some look bright. Others should be concerned.

College basketball needed a night like that

The sport has problems. One star-studded night won't cure what has happened or defend against what might be coming. But it gave everyone a break, if only for a moment, to remember why we love it.

Kentucky's 61 points in its 65-61 loss to Kansas are its fewest in a game since beating South Carolina 58-43 on Jan. 24, 2015.

Really good minutes from Sacha Killeya-Jones tonight. Eight points, nine rebounds. Has been the only remotely productive Kentucky big man on the offensive end.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

I've said that Malik Newman is the key this season for Kansas. I think he needs to be their best scorer -- has the potential to give them that extra dimension offensively. Think he's still getting his swagger and confidence back. Huge 3-pointer there.
