Upset Alert

The Duke Blue Devils would play what they thought would be an easy team the Miami Hurricanes , but they were wrong. Even though Miami has been on a defensive roll, giving up less than 60 points in their past 3 games. They would not hold Duke to less than 60 points, but their offense was amazing and they only ended up giving away 63 points to Duke. This would be the first win for coach, Jim Larranaga over a number 1 team. Also, it would be the third highest margin of victory over a number 1 team all time.

The key to winning this game would be holding Duke to 19 points total in the first half. While the Hurricanes put up 42 points. Which is 23 more points. Mason Plumlee was not slowed down a bit though, he had 15 points and 11 rebounds for Duke. The key to victory for Miami would not be held in what people would think, stopping Mason Plumlee. It would be a combination of Shane Larkin, Kenny Kadji, and Durand Scott. Scott and Kadji would both have 20 point games. Scott ended with 6 rebounds and 25 points. Kadji had 22 points, 2 blocks and 2 steals. Plus Larkin would have 10 rebounds to make a double double with his 18 points.

After this game what do you think Duke's number 1 Ap poll turn into. Plus what will Miami's 25 turn into. Post what you think In the comments!
