Breaking down the freshmen who will star in No. 1 Duke vs. No. 2 Michigan State

The No. 1 Duke Blue Devils (2-0) defeated the Utah Valley Wolverines, 99-69, in which Marvin Bagley III had 24 points, 10 rebounds and two assists.

By the looks of things, this could be a rough season for Grayson Allen haters. The Spartans beat North Florida, and also scored 98 points in the game. Defensively, Michigan State allows 66.0 points per game against the opposing teams.

The Michigan State Spartans have a National Player of the Year candidate Miles Bridges to star in their lineup. In Friday's win, Bagley set the scoring record for a Duke freshman in a season opener with 25 points (Shavlik Randolph, 23 versus Army on November 12, 2002). Trevon Duval is adding 11.5 points and 10 assists per contest.

Michigan State Spartans guard Branden Dawson (22) reacts after a basket against the Kentucky Wildcats during the first half at the United Center. Tom Izzo continues to lead great teams, but many think this could be the best team he has had.

The game lived up to the hype, as both teams traded blows and went on several runs throughout the entire contest before Allen and Duke took over late and went on to win it. As we have seen in previous seasons, these are good games, that are a little sloppy at times.

Allen was clearly the difference in the game after he played all 40 minutes and stepped up whenever his team needed a big play. In the end though, the talent of Duke is going to come through strong. The Duke player-of-the-year candidate scored 37 points in a 88-81 win for No. 1 Duke over No. 2 Michigan State on Tuesday night.
