ITP: Turnovers doom Kansas in season-opening loss to Duke

Kansas may be 0-1, but there are plenty of storylines to discuss after Tuesday’s loss to the Duke Blue Devils.


We spend plenty of time discussing everything that happened in the Duke game – turnovers, four guard lineups, two big lineups, Marcus Garrett’s usage, and even some positives we saw from the Champions Classic game.

Other than Kansas, the Big 12 had a flawless opening week. We discuss the various other results in the conference, the No. 1 team in the country taking a loss, and some of the noteworthy results from around the country in season opening week.

We preview KU’s next game, which is the home opener against a formidable opponent in UNC Greensboro. We give predictions and keys to getting the Jayhawks’ first victory of the year.
