Players talk Kentucky vs. Duke rivalry at Jordan Brand Classic

Kentucky and Duke will open the college basketball season at the Champions Classic in Indianapolis this coming season.

The Blue Devils have each of the top three recruits in the class of 2018, along with the No. 1 point guard in the nation. The Wildcats hold one of the top recruiting classes and are in position with two more elite five-star prospects to close out the class. Most importantly, they have an opportunity to bring back a ridiculous amount of talented veteran leadership.

When all said and done, it’s possible Kentucky and Duke are the top-two teams in the preseason rankings.

College basketball fans wanted a major event to tip-off the season, and they’re going to get one.

I talked to Duke signees Cam Reddish and Tre Jones about the big rivalry between the Cats and the Devils, the upcoming Champions Classic, and their thoughts on the Kentucky program and their players competing in the Jordan game.

Tyler Herro and Keldon Johnson couldn’t help but talk about winning the first friendly competition between the schools.

Take a look at the interviews below:

Time to pick up a second victory this afternoon.

      They was a reason why we wanted Barret, he’s a stud, and that Cam reddish is a Ace at the 3 point line, I’m not sure about the rest of the team but reddish is a 3 point threat always.
      But I love the fact that our guys kicked their asses on the court, hopefully that’ll be in the back of their minds all summer, that they are gonna play the UK guys that beat them easily but now they have to go against their entire team of studs come November. I cant wait !!! We got a strong team already next year, but if we add haggans and or Montgomery then we will be the favorite for the title???
