No. 4 Duke 78, Miami 75, OT: This is Miami’s Dwayne Collins

Duke looked a little more comfortable Saturday, but still needed a furious comeback to force overtime before outlasting Jack McClinton and a tough Miami team.

McClinton made shots from all over the court to help the Hurricanes build a 16-point lead in the first half. Duke rallied behind Gerald Henderson and Jon Scheyer, who combined for 41 points. The usually-awful David McClure also played well, grabbing 13 rebounds and hustling all over the court.

McClinton put on a show in historic Cameron Indoor. He poured in 34 points, including a long 3-pointer in the closing seconds of regulation that sent the game to overtime.

Duke is now 20-3 overall and 7-2 in the ACC heading into Wednesday’s matchup against North Carolina. Miami appears to be on the fringe of NCAA tournament contention with a 15-8 overall record and a 4-6 mark in the ACC.

The game featured a number of exciting plays, none better than this ferocious dunk by Miami’s Dwayne Collins. This is Greg Paulus getting some familiar “sac time” courtesy of Collins…
