No. 2 Duke Sneaks Past No. 4 Ohio State

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(DURHAM, N.C.) -- Duke may not be ranked No. 1 in the country, but they certainly are playing at that level.

Mason Plumlee had 21 points and 17 rebounds, Ryan Kelly chipped in with 15 and No. 2 Duke defeated No. 4 Ohio State 73-68 on Wednesday night at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Plumlee lead the way for the Blue Devils (7-0), who added this win to an impressive early-season list that includes victories over Louisville and Kentucky. 

The Buckeyes (4-1), who won easily over Duke last season, were outscored 50-37 in the second half despite holding a double digit lead earlier in the game. They shot 6 for 21 from beyond the arc.

A big reason for the second half Duke surge was freshman Rasheed Sulaimon, who scored all 17 of his points in the period. 

Deshaun Thomas scored 16 to lead Ohio State.
