Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Folks in the Windy City are in for a treat tonight, as a double-header of epic proportion is on tap in the third Champions Classic, starting with a matchup between top-ranked Kentucky and No. 2 Michigan State.
The convenient storyline of Kentucky’s matchup against Michigan State will be one of raw talent vs. college experience.
Kentucky started four freshmen in two games this season from a group that’s expected to challenge for the national championship and declare for the NBA Draft. Michigan State has built a team in a way that’s become common in East Lansing — develop its own pro talent over the course of three and four years while challenging for national championships.
