Sidelines with John Clay

Podcast: Kentucky-Duke basketball preview

In anticipation of Tuesday night’s Kentucky-Duke game in the Champions Classic at Chicago, I talked with Laura Keeley of the Raleigh News and Observer and Jerry Tipton of the Herald-Leader about the early-season showdown.

Laura talks about how Duke looked in its first two games, wins over Siena and Bryant. She discusses the play of sophomore guard Grayson Allen, who is off to a fast start. She also talks about Duke freshman Brandon Ingram, who was recruited by Kentucky before signing with the Blue Devils.

Jerry talks about how Kentucky looked in its first two games, wins over Albany and NJIT. Jerry gives his observations on the play of freshmen Skal Labissiere and Jamal Murray, plus how well junior Derek Willis has looked to this point.
