Duke Vs. Kentucky: Devils up 33-31 at halftime

In a battle between two teams who represent contrasting philosophies at the Georgia Dome, No. 9 Duke got out to a narrow 33-31 halftime lead over No. 3 Kentucky.

The Blue Devils got 28 of their 33 points from their three seniors -- Ryan Kelly, Miles Plumlee and Seth Curry.

The Wildcats, meanwhile, got 26 of their 31 points from four freshman -- Nerlens Noel, Alex Poythress, Willie Cauley-Stein and Archie Goodwin -- who formed the core of yet another sterling recruiting class from John Calipari.

The game itself has been fairly sloppy, with the two teams combining for 14 turnovers and 21 free throws in a game that was marred by whistles.

With Ryan Harrow back in Lexington due to illness, Kentucky spent most of the half without a traditional PG on the floor, causing their offense to stagnate.

Duke, on the other hand, has struggled to finish in the lane over the massive Wildcats front-line, with their offensive success coming from taking three-pointers (4-12 from beyond the arc) and crashing the offensive glass (7 offensive boards) on the resulting long misses.


Jayhawks lead Spartans 35-32 at the half.

A hard-fought first half between the No. 21 Michigan State Spartans and No. 7 Kansas Jayhawks ends with a 35-32 Jayhawks lead as the teams head to the locker room in the first game of the Champions Classic at the Georgia Dome.

Gary Harris led all scorers with 11 points for the Spartans while shooting 4 of 6 from the field. He also got to the charity stripe at a good rate, finishing the first half going 3 of 4 from the line. Alex Gauna came off the bench and scored 6 points for the Spartans while Derrick Nix also chipped in half a dozen as well.

The scoring for the Kansas Jayhawks was more spread out with both Elijah Johnson and Ben McLemore putting away 7 points each to share the team lead. Next in line for Kansas was Jamari Traylor with 6 points in the first half.

Both teams were bitten by the turnover bug, especially late in the half. Michigan State went to the locker room with 10 turnovers while Kansas left the floor with 9 turnovers.
