The premier game of the 2011 Big Ten/ACC Challenge takes place tonight in Columbus when No. 4 Duke visits No. 2 Ohio State. The Buckeyes moved up to No. 2 in the rankings behind Kentucky after No. 1 North Carolina was upset by UNLV over the weekend. now Jared Sullinger and company will host their first marquee opponent of the season. Along the Olentangy has a look at the Blue Devils:
The Blue Devils are led by two junior stars, guard Seth Curry and forward Mason Plumlee. Curry, the brother of NBA and former Davidson College point guard Stephon Curry, leads his team in points and assists per game. He facilitates ball movement and generally makes the Duke offense work.
The Buckeyes are undefeated so far on the season, but they have yet to play a team of Duke's caliber. The Big Ten has also won the Big Ten/ACC challenge in each of the past two seasons, but the Blue Devils only have one loss in 12 years of the event.
