Last night was a big night for the Big Ten in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, and the Buckeyes are hoping that that continues on Wednesday night with a real test at Cameron Indoor against what might be one of the best teams in America. The Dookies are definitely beatable, but man, they have played just a wicked schedule to date and have yet to be bounced. Kentucky, Minnesota, VCU, and Louisville have all come calling against the Blue Devils, only to get beaten one after the other. OSU doesn’t quite have that bulk on the inside that it did last year with Jared Sullinger in the fold, but F Deshaun Thomas is really doing everything that he can right now, averaging 24.0 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. G Aaron Craft is one of the best point guards in the game as well. As far as the Blue Devils are concerned, they aren’t very deep, but they have proven in the past that they don’t have to be. Five players account for all but 7.0 points per game of the scoring, led by F Mason Plumlee at 19.7 points and 10.0 boards per game. What’s scariest about Duke is that it has the ability to shoot the ball even better than it has. There’s no reason to think that the Blue Devils won’t get this one by at least a touchdown at home on Wednesday night.
