Duke v Kansas
OMAHA, NE - MARCH 25: Marques Bolden #20 of the Duke Blue Devils attempts a shot defended by Udoka Azubuike #35 of the Kansas Jayhawks during the first half in the 2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Midwest Regional at CenturyLink Center on March 25, 2018 in Omaha, Nebraska.

We’ve talked a fair amount about Ferris State this week and how we’re impressed with their confidence and that we think they’re coming to Cameron to win, not just show up.

It’s a big hill to climb and it will take some cooperation from Duke, but as we said last time, it’s not hard to imagine an experienced team flustering a younger team, even in Cameron. Does the name Vermont ring any bells?

Fortunately, one of Duke’s mantras is to always respect the opponent and honor them with your best effort.

Game time is 4:00 and it’ll be on WatchESPN.

It’s an exhibition game of course and only counts for what you can get out of it, but things are going to get real very quickly with Kentucky looming on November 6th.
