11 Duke visits Miami on Saturday with the teams separated by a single game in the ACC standings and both needing strong finishes to potentially earn one of four coveted double-byes in the conference tournament. The Blue Devils find themselves in a four-way tie for second place behind No. 8 North Carolina following their last-second loss at Syracuse on Wednesday, while the Hurricanes upset No. 19 Virginia 54-48 in overtime on Monday for their third straight win.
The Blue Devils had won seven in a row prior to Syracuse’s John Gillon draining a buzzer-beating 3-pointer that gave the Orange a must win despite impressive performances by Duke’s Luke Kennard (23 points) and freshman Jayson Tatum (19, 13 rebounds). “This is one of the best leagues in the country, and we can’t let up because we go down to Miami in 48 hours and play a really good, hungry Miami team,” graduate student Amile Jefferson, who scored 14 points against the Orange, told reporters after the loss. “We have to move on.” The Hurricanes overcame a seven-point deficit in the second half against Virginia behind the clutch shooting of freshman Bruce Brown, who hit the go-ahead 3-pointer in the final minute of overtime and also finished 9-of-10 from the foul line. Miami, which is 4-4 against Duke under coach Jim Larranaga, will be looking to atone for a dismal second-half performance in the previous meeting in which it led by nine points at halftime before coming completely unglued during a 31-4 run that resulted in a 70-58 win for the Blue
