The Kansas State Wildcats will play the Duke Blue Devils on Tuesday night at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. as part of the CBE Classic. This is the game everyone wanted to see and they'll get it on Tuesday night. Mike Krzyzewski and the No. 1 Duke Blue Devils will take on Frank Martin and the No. 4 Kansas State Wildcats in what is easily the best game of this young 2010 college basketball season.
The Wildcats are coming off of an impressive 17-point victory over Gonzaga at the Sprint Center on Monday night. Kansas State looked like a complete team and after the game people had to be asking themselves: Are we sure Duke is the best team in the country? K-State looked that good and that deep.
Duke meanwhile struggled against Marquette failing to ever really put them away in an 82-77 victory.
Nevertheless, it's No. 1 vs. No. 4 in the finale everyone involved with the CBE Classic wanted to see. Tip-off is at 9:15 p.m. (central) on Tuesday evening and will air on ESPN2.
For Duke, this is another game as top-ranked opponent. Kansas State isn't used to this. This is not just another game with the nation watching. I expect the Wildcats to show up really fired up. They showed Monday night against No. 22 Gonzaga that they can play like they're the best team in the country.
