Kentucky coach John Calipari said he got "outcoached" by rival Mike Krzyzewski after his team's 118–84 loss to No. 4 Duke on Tuesday in the Champions Classic.

It was the worst loss of his coaching career. 

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

Krzyzewski called his freshman core "magnificent."

''To play this well on this stage, right away against Kentucky is surprising,'' Krzyzewski said. ''I'm really proud of my freshmen.''

Duke next faces Army on Sunday. Kentucky will take on Southern Illinois on Saturday.
