No. 1 Duke blown out

 

No. 1 Duke went more than 8 minutes without a field goal in the first half Wednesday night, and a sellout became a blowout for No. 25 Miami, which delighted a boisterous crowd with a 90-63 men’s basketball victory. The Hurricanes (14-3, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat a No. 1 team for the first time, taking control with a stunning 25-1 run midway through the first half. The Blue Devils missed 13 consecutive shots despite numerous good looks, while four Hurricanes hit 3-pointers during the stunning run that transformed a 14-13 deficit into a 38-15 lead. Duke (16-2, 3-2) fell to 0-2 when playing on an opponent’s court. The Blue Devils’ other loss came at North Carolina State, a defeat cost them the No. 1 ranking. It was third-worst loss ever for a No. 1 team. – AP
