The Michigan State Spartans get a victory over Kentucky 78-72 during the 2013 Champions classic. The Spartans rank number 2 and Kentucky ranks number 1. It was difficult to hold off Julius Randle. Randle had 27 points but not enough to hold the lead. Appling had 22 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assist. In a post game conference the coaches spoke. Izzo said “We did a heck of a job in the first half. We really did on (Randle) too. We game planned it exactly how we wanted to. But John made a couple of nice adjustments in the second half.” Spoke Izzo. “He spaced them out a little bit and then they started to get down low.” Coach Calipari had a statement as well. “You get into a place where everyone’s trying to do their own thing, and it looks discombobulated, but I excepted that. We don’t take a lot of pride in our defense right now, but that’s natural”. said Calipari. “I think we’re going to be fine. I’ve got four months to get this right. Less now three not a half month.” The Spartans go home 2-0 and Kentucky leaves 2-1. Both teams will have a dominate season ahead of them with some of the top players in the country like Gary Harris and Julius Randle. Good luck to both teams in the future (but go green).
