Duke University^ strong on athletics. Its teams are called the Blue Devils.

No. 2 seeded Ohio State was defeated by Duke in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday at the Schottenstein Center, falling 75-63 to the seventh-seeded Blue Devils. The defeat marked Ohio State’s second loss on their home court this season, with Duke advancing to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2018.

Ohio State led by as many as 16 points in the first half, but Duke’s junior guard Reigan Richardson carried the team to victory with 28 points, shooting over 60% from the field. Richardson went 3-for-3 from beyond the arc and registered seven rebounds along with three steals.

Ohio state sophomore Cotie McMahon scored a team-high 27 points for the Buckeyes, but that effort was not enough to take the Buckeyes to a third consecutive Sweet 16.
