Michigan State Shocks No. 4 Kentucky in Double Overtime (86-77, 2OT) in Champions Classic

The Champions Classic tipped off a week later this year, but college basketball’s big bash wasn’t void of drama. The four iconic programs that usually kickstart the year came together for a pair of epic showdowns in Indianapolis. Michigan State withstood 4th-ranked Kentucky and Oscar Tshiebwe (22 points, 18 rebounds) to steal a double-overtime upset. In the nightcap, Kansas and Duke went head-to-head in a top-10 matchup where the Jayhawks gave Duke coach Jon Scheyer his first loss. Jalen Wilson had 25 points and 11 boards for KU.
