Good news for you early birds: it is being reported that Kentucky and Michigan State will play the early game in the Champions Classic on Tuesday, November 12th, tipping off at 7:30 p.m. ET. Duke vs. Kansas will be the nightcap, tipping off about 30 minutes afterwards.

I can’t imagine a better way to start basketball season.

    I know we have preseason games, but not really playing in March has made this off-season so unbearable. Not to mention those who will go unnamed who live up the road from us having a filthy good year.

    I look forward to walking out after the first game ends like all those Duke fans did at MSG.

    I love these games and understand why Cal wants to schedule neutral site traditional powers. The national exposure gets UK into regional markets, West Coast with UCLA, and others that just puts UK in everones view. Plus they’re early in the year and loss is not damaging. I hate that we can’t get these games as a home and home but that isn’t going to happen. The SEC just has to get a better image.Hell the Big East has lived a false image for years with 3 or 4 teams having any tournament success. Look it up, on a web site that tracts conference tournament performance versus seeding, the big east was the worst performer. In the last 10 years, the ACC and SEC DID BETTER.

    Kentucky v Michigan St should have been the night cap. The two top teams in the nation going at it is a no brainer. Best game should be last, but people would rather hype up the Wiggins/Parker thing.
