No. 17 Duke took down No. 25 Ohio State 81-72. Five players scored in double figures for the Blue Devils, led by Kyle Filipowski's 16 points.

Zed Key led Ohio State with 21 points, but the Buckeyes got just nine points from their bench players. It was a strong bounce-back performance for Duke after its 19-point loss to Purdue on Sunday.
