Duke Basketball Beats Michigan State In A Top 20 Matchup


Caleb Foster didn’t look like a rookie in his third game; instead, he looked like a player who had been there, done that.

Foster scored 18 points in a string of impressive baskets to help No. 9 Duke defeat No. 18 Michigan State 74-65 on Tuesday night in the Champions Classic. And he accomplished it after the Blue Devils’ last game in which he failed to attempt a shot.

The Blue Devils (2-1), led by 15 points from Kyle Filipowski, withstood multiple rallies by the Spartans (1-2) after taking an 11-point lead into halftime in the opening game of a formidable doubleheader. In the nightcap, Hunter Dickinson and top-seeded Kansas took on No. 17 Kentucky.

With just under two minutes left in the game, Foster scored all but two of his points in the second half, including back-to-back 3-pointers that increased Duke’s lead to 68-56. He completed 4 of 5 shots from outside the arc and 7 of 8 from the field.

Foster, who scored 15 points in a season-opening victory over Dartmouth but went scoreless in 13 minutes in a home loss to then-No. 12 Arizona last week, has already experienced many highs and lows.

“My mindset was just to be ready when coach called my name,” Foster said. “Before the game, my teammates and my coaches were just telling me to be ready. I feel like I work hard for this moment, it’s a moment I’ve dreamed of, and so, yeah, just coming in and be ready.”

He certainly made an impression on coach Jon Scheyer.

“Every high school player in the country should follow what he’s done the last two games because it’s what it’s all about, the attitude, the mindset, the work, he’s crushed it,” Scheyer said.

After scoring 25 points in each of Duke’s opening two games, Filipowski finished the second half with 10 points. The All-American for the preseason pulled down eight rebounds.

In front of his home crowd, Scheyer secured a victory with 13 points apiece from Tyrese Proctor and Mark Mitchell. In Northbrook, Illinois, a town roughly 25 miles from the United Center, he excelled at Glenbrook North High School before going on to become an All-American player and a devoted assistant to Hall of Famer Mike Krzyzewski.

Malik Hall scored eighteen points, while Tyson Walker led Michigan State with twenty-two. After shooting 2 for 31 in their opening two games of the season—a crushing victory over Southern Indiana and a defeat to James Madison—the Spartans went on to shoot 6 of 19 from beyond the arc.
