Champions Classic is living up to the hype through a game and a half. He’s not going to win many popularity contests, but Grayson Allen may wind up being the key to Duke’s national title hopes after all. Even without Bagley for most of the night they still looked damn impressive against a very good Spartan squad. I don’t know how you’re supposed to guard them if the outside shots are falling. Seems like maybe you just can’t.
Anyways, on to the few highlights we found tonight. Starting with our first Villanova sighting of the year.
Time to order those Donte DiVincenzo posters!

And we’ll keep it in the tri-state area with a Rutgers.. yes, RUTGERS highlight. Corey Sanders is one of the most underrated players in the country, you should absolutely check him out if you get the chance this season. Beautiful pass and finish here.
Nice dime, Corey Sanders!
(Nice finish, too, Geo Baker.)

Meanwhile, at the late game in Chicago, Hamidou Diallo with the steal and the aggressive slam. He’s going to dunk about 200 times this year I think, and I might post every single one of them here.
Is it weird that I feel all warm inside watching Hamidou Diallo? pic.twitter.com/aUnOG2Au8u

Some good ones tomorrow…
Mini Big East vs B10 challenge with Creighton @ Northwestern & Butler @ Maryland. Also have Bucknell @ UNC, and I’m curious to see how Indiana fares at Seton Hall after the start both those teams have had.
