Miami has tough challenge at Duke on Saturday

Fri., March 1, 2013, midnight

On Saturday night, No. 5 Miami can clinch the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season men’s basketball championship. Easier said than done. Not only will the Hurricanes have to beat third-ranked Duke to wrap up the crown, but beat the Blue Devils at Cameron Indoor Stadium, where the home team has won 92 of its last 97 games. One of those five losses, however, came against Miami last season. The Hurricanes rode the strength of 27 points from Reggie Johnson to win at Cameron last season. Miami beat Duke by 27 points earlier this year. Duke lost to Virginia 73-68 on Thursday.
