Duke Falls At Ohio State 85-63

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Jared Sullinger scored 21 points and three teammates were close behind as No. 2 Ohio State roared out to an 11-0 lead and never looked back in beating third-ranked Duke 85-63 on Tuesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Buckeyes fans chanted "Overrated" at the Blue Devils in the final minute.

The Buckeyes (7-0) never trailed, weathering a Duke rally later in the first half and then leading by 20 for most of the second half.

Austin Rivers had 22 points and Mason Plumlee 16 for the Blue Devils (7-1), coming off wins over ranked opponents Michigan and Kansas in their previous two games.

William Buford scored 20, Deshaun Thomas 18 and Aaron Craft 17 for the Buckeyes, who gave the Big Ten a 4-2 edge in the conference matchups.

    Wow no comments? I guess all the UNC fans reserve their hatred for articles concerning ECU football only.

        No they only make comments if you pull against them, and Roy the boy Williams would say, " Gosh Darn IT" there are people pulling against us at a game. We can't have that, isn't that funny, Roy upset about fans pulling against his team. Grow a set Roy, if he would stop worrying about what fan is setting where, and actually worry about coaching his team, then the holes wouldn't have gotten whooped by UNLV

      It seems the UNC fans usually make negative comments in response to the UNC haters comments about UNC. Its rare that a UNC fan starts it up.

        BULL! Go look at any article concerning an ECU sports team and take in the anger/hatred/negativity from all the non-alumni UNC fans! And to further prove my point, see the comments on the article about ECU losing to ODU. All I said was that I would have thought UNC fans would be all over this story, especially since they had to hear it for losing to UNLV.

          Its people like you and Dave that keeps things stirred up. You really need a full-time job to occupy your time. Professional blogger is not a career...
