The basketball world was in awe last night, as Duke decimated Kentucky in the season opener. Whether it was R.J. Barrett making plays or Zion Williamson throwing down ferocious dunks, the Blue Devils were electric.
For the past few months, Duke’s core of freshmen were receiving tons of praise before even stepping on the hardwood. Clearly, all the hype was well-deserved.
Even Dick Vitale couldn’t help but gush over the Blue Devils, as he gave his thoughts on the game. In an awesome post on Twitter, the famous broadcaster raved about having talent over experience in the NCAA.
Here’s his tweet:
We often here sports talk / we need EXPERIENCE / ask Coach K if @DukeMBB needed experience / I’ll give u exp. you give me TALENT !I am still in shock of how the Dukies won so easily !Face it @KentuckyMBB is not Cupcake City

Can you blame him? Barrett, Williamson and Cam Reddish combined for 83 points. Just to put that number into context, the entire Kentucky team had 84 points in total.
It’s early in the NBA season, but the star freshmen on Duke could inspire teams to start tanking before the winter even begins.
On Sunday, the Blue Devils will face Army in Cameron Indoor Stadium. Get your popcorn ready, college basketball fans.
