For the majority of the game, it appeared No. 4 Ohio State’s first trip to Cameron Indoor Stadium would end with a Buckeyes victory.
But thanks to timely sharpshooting from Ryan Kelly behind the arc, another double-double from Mason Plumlee and 17 second-half points from Rasheed Sulaimon, No. 2 Duke was able to come from behind and win 73-68. Duke has won 97 straight non-conference games—the longest active streak in the nation.
Plumlee finished with 21 points and 17 rebounds. He was also 9-of-12 from the free throw line, including two key makes to put Duke ahead 60-56 with 2 minutes remaining in the game. Kelly contributed 15 and was 3-of-5 from 3-point range.
