The 2019-20 college basketball season tips off today with a full slate of games headlined by the Duke-Kansas and Michigan State-Kentucky contests in the State Farm Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden. But there are also some notable conference matchups, including an ACC tilt between Georgia Tech and NC State. The Yellow Jackets are hoping to bounce back from a disappointing 14-18 (No. 116 in the Dunkel Index) season, while the Wolfpack will see if they can make the big tournament following last year’s 24-12 campaign (No. 22 in the Index) and NIT bid. Tip off is 8:30 p.m. at PNC Arena. To get Dunkel’s pick for this game and the full NCAA basketball schedule, click HERE.
At the professional level, the Denver Nuggets (4-2, No. 13 in the Dunkel Index) return home following a mini two-game road trip and host the red-hot Miami Heat (5-1, No. 5), who are coming off a 129-100 win over the Houston Rockets on Sunday. Tip off is 9:00 p.m. EST at Pepsi Center. To get Dunkel’s pick for this game and the full NBA schedule, click HERE.
