Down Goes Duke…Not That There’s Anything Wrong With That…

KENNY KADJ AND REGGIE JOHNSON (Chuck Liddy/News & Observer)
Tar Heel Nation celebrated yesterday as they prepped for the Super Bowl when they learned that Miami had upset Duke.  Then they realized the now-very angry Coach K and his boys were headed to Chapel Hill on Wednesday night…

Reggie Johnson scored five of his career-high 27 points in overtime and Kenny Kadji added 15 points for the Hurricanes (14-7, 5-3 ACC), who blew a 16-point lead in the second half, then regrouped to claim their first victory at Cameron Indoor Stadium and just their second win over Duke since joining the ACC.

Seth Curry scored 22 points and freshman Austin Rivers added 20 for the Blue Devils (19-4, 6-2), who missed all six of their free throws in overtime and were beaten by a Florida-based conference rival for the second time this season.

The book on Duke remains the same…if they shoot well they win. Yesterday they were 9-31 from beyond the arc, and oddly they missed 9 free throws…all of them in overtime.
