COL BKB: Ohio State 85, Duke 63

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Jared Sullinger scored 21 points and snagged eight rebounds Tuesday to lead No. 2 Ohio State to an 85-63 rout of fourth-ranked Duke.

The lopsided win was part of the annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge and a rude welcome back to the mainland for the Blue Devils (7-1), who were fresh off winning the Maui Invitational in Hawaii.

Austin Rivers had 22 points for Duke and Mason Plumlee scored 16, but they were the only Blue Devils in double figures and accounted for 15 of the team's 26 field goals.

The Buckeyes (7-0) shot 59.3 percent from the field and won the rebounding battle 32-23.

Sullinger had help from William Buford, who scored 20 points, and Deshaun Thomas, who added 18. Ohio State led 47-28 at halftime.
