In a quest to avoid a similar fate of the previous three No. 1 teams in college basketball earlier this season, in which all three were ranked No. 1 then promptly lost the same week, the Cardinals face a red-hot MI team that, like them, have started the season 7-0.

That hot streak will continue against Duke as Michigan State will not only surpass 40 percent for the third consecutive game, but actually 50 percent. Winston also led Michigan State in assists against UCLA as he recorded 4 while playing 35 minutes in the game. Xavier Tillman led Michigan State in rebounds in the game with 7, including 2 coming offensively.

DID YOU KNOW: Michigan as a team has made 10.3 3-pointers per game this season, which is tops among Big Ten teams.

Michigan State will utilize the likes of Cassius Winston, who will make four, Gabe Brown and Rocket Watts on its way to a strong shooting nice from the perimeter. Duke will have a tough time closing on the perimeter with the Spartans' ball movement as they also finish with around 20 assists as a team.

Court ruling allows House to enforce subpoenas demanding Trump's tax returns
The ruling from the 2nd Circuit is the third time a federal appeals court has upheld subpoenas for Trump's business records. A 2017 disclosure form showed that Trump had at least US$130 million of liabilities to the bank.

Duke has scored an averaged of 83.8 points per game this season while allowing 64.8 points per game. Michigan State has scored 80.9 points per game while allowing 64.7 points per game.

Both teams look a little different as out of the seven players Tom Izzo used in the victory, four of them are still on the roster for Tuesday nights game and for Coach K, he returns five of the nine players used. I am going to go with Duke in this one.

On the first night of the season, Duke was able to defeat then No. 3 Kansas but after its championship in the 2K Empire Classic, the Blue Devils have looked anything but impressive. This game will come down to the wire, but I believe the Blue Devils pull this one out.
