Best bet on the Tube

The outcome wasn’t as shocking as the margin. A year ago, when No. 3 Duke played at second-ranked Ohio State in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, the Buckeyes couldn’t do anything wrong and the Blue Devils could do nothing right. Ohio State scored the first 11 points and was on top by as many as 25 in what ended up as an 85-63 landslide. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said, “Sometimes you just get your butt kicked.” The teams meet again tonight ( 6:30 p.m., ESPN), again in the cross- conference showdown. This time the No. 4 Buckeyes (4-0) must play at Cameron Indoor Stadium against the No. 2 Blue Devils (6-0). –AP
