Kentucky vs. Michigan State: Live game updates, college basketball scores, NCAA top 25 highlights today

The opening game of the Champions Classic between No. 4 Kentucky and Michigan State has thus far lived up to the billing and then some, as the Wildcats and Spartans went to double-overtime tied at 71.

Kentucky and Michigan State were tied at 62 at the end of regulation after exchanging body blows early in a thrilling first half. Michigan State led 36-34 at halftime after trailing for most of the opening frame, this after digging out of a seven-point deficit midway through the opening 20 minutes of action.

Kentucky welcomed back big man Oscar Tshiebwe to the lineup for the first time this season coming off the bench as he recovers from a knee injury, and — no surprise here — he was a huge reason UK was pacing the game early. However, Tshiebwe fouled out in the first overtime period and finished with 22 points.

We should be in for a fun finish from Indy so stay tuned for live updates below.
