Miami ends Duke's home win streak
Angel Rodriguez scored 24 points and Miami shot 67 percent after halftime to upset No. 4 Duke 90-74 on Tuesday night in Durham, N.C., ending the Blue Devils' 41-game home winning streak.
Manu Lecomte had 23 points for the Hurricanes (12-4, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who dominated the final 20 minutes with their pesky defense and attacking dribble penetration that the Blue Devils just couldn't defend.
Trailing 35-34 at the break, Miami shot 18-for-27 after halftime and hit six of nine three-pointers — a stunningly one-sided show starring a team that lost by 28 points at home to Eastern Kentucky on Dec. 19.
Duke (14-2, 2-2) hadn't lost at Cameron Indoor Stadium since March 2012 and hadn't lost consecutive regular-season games since February 2009. The Blue Devils also lost at North Carolina State on Sunday.
Freshman point guard Tyus Jones of Apple Valley had six points and two assists for Duke.
