Everything went Ohio State’s way in Tuesday night’s 85-63 win over No. 4 Duke in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge (recap). At one point even, point guard Aaron Craft attempted to pass to Jared Sullinger through an opponent’s legs, only to have it deflect off Miles Plumlee’s leg and go right to himself in rhythm for a layup. If you didn’t watch it closely, it almost looked like Craft went five-hole to set himself up for the easy bucket. Either way, it was a great play on a night where it was all Buckeyes.
Seeking its third consecutive win in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, the Big Ten jumped out to a 4-2 lead in the annual series Tuesday night. No.2 Ohio State blasted No. 4 Duke (recap), Northwestern beat Georgia Tech (recap), Illinois topped Maryland (recap) and Purdue put away Miami (recap), while Michigan fell at Virginia (recap) and Iowa was no match for Clemson (recap).
