Schools like Kansas and Duke don't rebuild in college hoops they reload. That is the case again with Duke this year as they add 4 top 40 recruits to their roster. These kids are good but they aren't the same caliber of player as Zion or RJ that were brought in last year. Also, the Blue Devils still are lacking a good perimeter game. They hit only 31% of 3 pointers taken last year. Duke also struggles on the defensive glass and that will prove costly against this Kansas team. As talented as the incoming class is for Duke we side with the just as talented Kansas team. I expect a big game from Kansas big man Azubuike. He is a tireless worker and should be able to take advantage down low. The main weakness on the Kansas team is defending perimeter jumpers but that is where Duke struggles. Take Kansas minus the points.
