After No. 2A KentuckyA suffered aA 118-84A loss to No. 4A DukeA on Tuesday in the Champions Classic, the worst loss of his coaching career at any level, John Calipari said he told his team he had been outdone by rival Mike Krzyzewski.

"They were just better than us," Calipari said. "I told [my team], 'I got outcoached, you guys got outplayed. We'll watch the tape and move on.'"

Duke freshmenA Zion Williamson,A Cam ReddishA andA RJ Barrettcombined to score 83 points. Freshman point guardA Tre Jones, the younger brother of former Duke starA Tyus Jones, finished with seven assists and zero turnovers. The Blue Devils made 46.2 percent of their 3-point attempts.

Calipari had previously suffered a 33-point loss to West Virginia while he was at UMass and a 32-point loss during his time in the NBA. But the 34-point loss on Tuesday night was the worst of his coaching career.
