The Michigan State Spartans weren’t at full strength on Tuesday night, yet still managed to win their Champions Classic matchup over the Duke Blue Devils. That should serve as a warning to the rest of college basketball.

Michigan State earned just their 4th ever win over Duke, and earned their first ever win at Cameron Indoor Stadium tonight with a 75-69 victory.
