Reddish hit another 3-pointer, Jones and Bolden hit layups and Barrett ended a fastbreak with a slam dunk to give Duke a 20-8 lead. I nearly switched to Kansas, at one point, like most others.
Keldon Johnson scored 23 points to lead Kentucky. The nightcap was a head-to-head battle between the nation's top two programs in Duke and Kentucky, with expectations sky-high for a contest featuring multiple projected lottery picks and what seemed to be a relatively even battle from a competitive perspective.

INDIANAPOLIS-With two freshmen breaking Duke's previous debut scoring record in one night, it's easy to keep all eyes on the Blue Devils' younger players. Duke pushed the margin back to 17 at the half, then opened the second half with a 15-5 run to put the game away. Barrett had a game-high 33 points in 32 minutes on 13-of-26 shooting from the field, including a 3-of-7 mark from downtown. Most teams don't have that kind of combination, but it's clear Kentucky needs to improve dramatically to keep up with the nation's top teams.

Kentucky shot 44 percent from the field but allowed the Blue Devils to shoot 54 percent. The Wildcats were outscored 60-38 in the paint.
