It might not have been the typical environment that we get to see at Cameron Indoor Stadium, but the fact still remains that Michigan State now have picked up their first win in their hallowed arena. They did so on Wednesday night as part of the State Farm Champions Classic, a tip-off style event that features some of the biggest programs in the nation. The 75-69 win was keyed by Rocket Watts’ 20 points as the #8 Spartans were able to take down the #6 Blue Devils.
The win sees MSU improve to 3-0 while Duke, who got 21 points from forward Matthew Hurt, are now at 1-1. There was one other game played in the event on the evening as well, with Kansas taking on Kentucky. When the dust had settled in that one, it was the Jayhawks coming out on top by a score of 65-62. The #7 Jayhawks got 23 points from Jalen Wilson- 21 of which came in the second half as their offense kicked into gear- to overcome the #20 Wildcats. Wilson was the only player on either squad to finish with a field goal percentage of 50% or higher, showing just how ugly of an affair it was throughout.
