NEW YORK -- Kansas had already gone through a tough loss this season, falling in overtime to Indiana in Honolulu. Cheap Swingman Wizards Jerseys .On Tuesday night, the Jayhawks went from looking like easy winners to facing another excruciating loss. But a short jumper by Frank Mason III with 1.8 seconds to go gave the Jayhawks a 77-75 victory over top-ranked Duke in the State Farm Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden.The play was to [isolate] me, and my teammates did a good job of spacing the floor, Mason said. It felt good when it left my hand.A long 3 at the buzzer by Dukes Frank Jackson was off line.The Jayhawks (1-1) beat a top-ranked team for the eighth time.This was more of a must-win for us than it was for Duke. Not that theres must-win this time of year, but I think it will do something for us because for the first time, we won a game where we shot it like crap, Kansas coach Bill Self said. So hopefully we learned some lessons and know that you cannot be great offensively and still win if you [dont] do little things and play aggressively. So I think it should bode well for us moving forward.Self was all smiles talking about his senior point guard.Hes made a lot of big plays for us, Self said of Mason. I dont know if hes made any game winners, but hes made plays to put us in overtime. Yeah, hes a stud.Mason made a big-time play, and it was well-guarded, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. He just made a big-time play.Kansas was ahead 62-50 with eight minutes to play, but the Blue Devils (2-1) -- despite a terrible shooting game by Grayson Allen, the leading vote-getter on The Associated Press preseason All-America team -- managed to suddenly start hitting shots, and they tied the game at 75 with 15 seconds left on a 3-pointer by Jackson.Kansas called a timeout with 8.2 seconds left and set up the game winner.That was quite a play we called, just get out of his way, Self said.I just took advantage of the separation I created, and I just shot the ball, Mason said. It felt good when it left my hand, and I just thank God that it went in.Mason, who had a career-high 30 points in the loss to Indiana, led Kansas with 21 points. Freshman Josh Jackson added 15, and Devonte Graham had 13.Luke Kennard led five Duke players in double figures with 22 points. Allen finished with 12 points on 4-for-15 shooting.I think Grayson had a very frustrating game, Krzyzewski said of Allen, who started the game by making one of 12 shots from the field. I think you cant expect to get a foul. I think hes going to a point where he makes a move and its a good move, and he expects a foul. Im not saying theyre not calling fouls. You cant do that. That cant be what youre doing. The last few minutes, he moved well. Hes playing hard when he gets the ball, and he needs to play harder when he doesnt have the ball. Its what he did in the last few minutes.Kansas finished 2-for-17 from 3-point range, but the Jayhawks shot 50.8 percent overall (33-of-65), including making 60.6 percent (20-of-33) in the second half.Duke shot 48.9 percent (23-of-47) for the game, including 8-for-19 on 3s.BIG PICTUREDuke: In their first two games, the Blue Devils held opponents to 55.0 points per game on 32.3 percent shooting, including 16.2 percent from 3-point range, while forcing an average of 17 turnovers. ... This was the 950th consecutive game in which the Blue Devils made at least one 3-pointer. Thats the fourth-longest stretch in Division I history. ... Duke again played without freshmen Harry Giles and Jayson Tatum.?Krzyzewski has said they will be brought along slowly as they rehab from injuries.Kansas: The Jayhawks were facing an AP No. 1 team for the 24th time and the first time since the 2014 Champions Classic, in which they lost to Kentucky 72-40. They are 8-16 all-time against No. 1s. ... The Jayhawks opening game was a 103-99 overtime loss to then-No. 11 Indiana in Honolulu. If youre going to travel 11,000 miles, you might as well get a win, Self said.POLL IMPLICATIONSDuke was No. 1 in the preseason poll and the first voting of the regular season. That will change with the loss. Kansas was No. 3 in the preseason poll and dropped to seventh with the loss to Indiana, but the Jayhawks should move up a couple spots with the win over Duke.HELLO, MELOKrzyzewski walked onto the court before the game and went straight across to see?Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks. The two shared a hug and a laugh. They combined to win three Olympic gold medals for the United States.UP NEXTDuke: The Blue Devils stay in the Northeast, heading to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off at Uncasville, Connecticut, on Friday and Saturday. They open against Penn State.Kansas: The Jayhawks finally get to play in Allen Fieldhouse when they face Siena on Friday. Kelly Oubre Jr. Jersey . However, he did make them miss him a little less. Cundiff, who had the unenviable job of replacing Dawson last season, agreed Thursday to a one-year, $1. Devin Robinson Jersey . Both players have lower body injuries that will keep them out of the lineup until at least January 31, which is the first game they can be activated from IR. http://www.cheapwizardsjerseys.com/?tag=...-frazier-jersey . Fred Couples, captain of the U.S. side, put it all into perspective. "We know whos in charge," he said. BARCELONA, Spain -- Luis Suarez scored a hat trick and Lionel Messi added two more goals as Barcelona started its Spanish league title defense in style by routing Real Betis 6-2 on Saturday.Suarez, who led scoring in La Liga with 40 goals last season, helped to put the result beyond doubt before halftime and struck twice afterward to complete the demolition.Even better for the Catalan club, Messi destroyed any hopes of title rivals that a difficult summer could have affected his game.Messi was found guilty in June of tax fraud in Spain -- he is appealing -- and lost another Copa America final with Argentina. But he was his normal brilliant self at Camp Nou.With the score at 1-1, Messi restored Barcelonas lead for good in the 37th minute with his first of two unstoppable strikes from the edge of the area. He was just as impressive as a playmaker, taking part in setting up three more goals.(Messi) is incredible. He is the best player in the world, Suarez said. You have to enjoy playing with a player like that.Sevilla also scored six goals but in a much closer 6-4 thrilling win over Espanyol for its first victory under manager Jorge Sampaoli after losses in the UEFA Super Cup and Spanish Super Cup.In Barcelona, Arda Turan had put the hosts ahead before Betis striker Ruben Castro equalized with the first of two goals.Barcelonas biggest title rivals play their opening matches on Sunday, when Real Madrid visits Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid hosts the promoted Alaves.For Suarez, the six-goal performance against Betis was a message that Barcelona is still the team to beat.Barca is always the favorite, Suarez said. Todays game was to show why we have been the champion in recent seasons.Before kickoff, Messi and Andres Iniesta received the trophy for last seasons title.After Iniesta, who is recovering from a leg injury, returned to the stands, Messi got down to helping Barcelona make its first step toward a third straight league crown.Messi needed six minutes to catch Betis defense off-balance with a cross-field pass to Jordi Alba, who then found Turan to sidefoot in his assist.Turan continuedd to make the most of Neymars Olympic duty for Brazil by scoring his third goal in as many matches. Ian Mahinmi Jersey. Turan scored twice to help win the Spanish Super Cup this week, and has meshed well with Messi and Suarez up front.Turan is talented and can play both as midfielder and forward, and now, on top of that, he is scoring goals, Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said. He is more integrated and happy.The other big benefactor of the lopsided win was Sergi Roberto. The versatile Roberto has been tapped to replace the big boots of Dani Alves on the right side of the defense. He excelled against Betis with passes for Messi and Suarez to score their first goals.Castro pulled Betis level in the 21st with a free kick that goalkeeper Claudio Bravo couldnt keep out in what could be his last match for Barcelona. Barcelona sports director Robert Fernandez said after the match that the club had reached a deal in principle to sell Bravo to Manchester City.But it didnt take long for Messi to quash Betis comeback.Messi had already struck the bar before getting his first goal, a trademark left-footed curler after he had received the ball from Roberto.Suarez made it 3-1 just before halftime when Messi played Roberto clear on the right. The Uruguay striker rolled Robertos pass off the far post and into the net.Barcelona increased its dominance after halftime as Messi led a counterattack that ended with him finding Suarez all alone to push in the ball in the 55th.Two minutes later Messi rifled a low strike past Adan, who then could do nothing to reach Suarezs free kick that sailed just inside the post in the 82nd.As a fan, I enjoy Messi, I cant deny it said Betis coach Gus Poyet. But when you are playing against him, you dont want him to play so well.Betis Castro scored the last goal of the match.Striker Luciano Vietto netted twice for Sevilla against a visiting Espanyol side which was in its first match under coach Quique Sanchez Flores.Elsewhere, Villarreal drew 1-1 at Granada.
