Duke at Kentucky Date 11/13/2012 9:00:00 PMLocation Atlanta, GALive StatsLinkTV ESPN Team Stats Embed This Chart On Your Website Every year, ESPN celebrates the greatness that is college basketball by showcasing a dozen games, back-to-back, on the network’s many channels, effectively putting those of us who eat, sleep and breathe basketball into a hoops coma. The tip-off marathon culminates Tuesday, Nov. 1, when two of the nation’s traditional powerhouse programs meet in the State Farm Champions Classic. No. 8 Duke Blue Devils take on No. 3 Kentucky Wildcats in the Georgia Dome, the site of this year’s Final Four. Game time is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. No. 14 Michigan State battles No. 7 Kansas in the first matchup of the Classic’s doubleheader. These four teams met in Madison Square Garden for the first Champions Classic last year. Then, No. 2 Kentucky beat No. 11 Kansas 75-65 behind the stellar play of Terrence Jones, who flew to the NBA after Kentucky won its eighth National Championship last April.
