*Maui Invitational (final on Nov. 24)
This could be a No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown, but it might not predict much. In November 2004, the last time Michigan State met Duke during the regular season, the Spartans lost 81--74. Four months later they dumped the Blue Devils 78--68 in the Sweet 16 en route to a Final Four appearance.
