Duke recruit Semi Ojeleye erupts for 57 points


It's a good time to be a Duke basketball fan.

The Blue Devils are undefeated and ranked No. 1 in both major college basketball polls. Top high school basketball recruit Jabari Parker recently announced that he'll head to Durham next fall. And another recruit, Semi Ojeleye, scored 57 points in a game.

Ojeleye, a 6-foot-8 senior at Ottawa (Kan.), led the Cyclones to a 77-30 win over Paola (Kan.). Earlier this season, Ojeleye scored a career-high 58 points.
