Tough turnaround

Sat., March 2, 2013

Duke’s rematch with fifth-ranked Miami today ( 3 p.m., ESPN) was already a big game, one that was supposed to give the third-ranked Blue Devils (24-4, 11-4 ACC) the chance to avenge an ugly loss and close the gap in the Atlantic Coast Conference race. It’s even bigger now for a team that needs to regain some swagger after a tough three-week stretch that has seen the ACC regular-season title all but slip away after Thursday’s loss at Virginia. The defeat gave the Hurricanes (23-4, 14-1) a share of the regular-season title, and Miami will win it outright as long as it doesn’t lose its last three games. – Associated Press
