I do still believe that the Blue Devils fall to Michigan State, even though this team is firing on all cylinders.

1-ranked player in this year's freshman class and all-everything Duke freshman, will not return in the second half against Michigan State after suffering an eye injury in the first half. Tonight's game takes place from the United Center is Chicago, Illinois as part of the State Farm Champions Classic.

One technical was called during No. 1 Duke's win over No. 2 Michigan State in the Champions Classic on Tuesday night.

In between the two games, ESPN will also air a showcase of the latest College Football Playoff rankings, expected to air around 9 PM ET. Tip-off is at 7 p.m., and boasts arguably the nation's top team in Duke and the nation's best player in Michigan State sophomore Miles Bridges.

Duke is off to a 2-0 start thanks to a 97-68 win over Elon and a 99-69 win over Utah Valley. Jaren Jackson Jr. added 13 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks while Nick Ward chipped in 16 points. In the season opening win over North Florida, he scored 20 points, while playing 27 minutes.

So long as the freshman phenom is sidelined, Duke should lean on Wendell Carter Jr., Marques Bolden and Antonio Vrankovic to shoulder the frontcourt workload. The Spartans are favorites to win the Big Ten over Purdue, Northwestern and others.
