No. 4 Duke Rallies To Down Miami In OT
Feb. 7, 2009
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -Gerald Henderson scored the go-ahead basket with 3:16 left in overtime, and No. 4 Duke rallied from a 16-point second-half deficit to beat Miami 78-75 on Saturday.
Henderson had 18 of his 19 points after halftime for the Blue Devils (20-3, 7-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who struggled the entire way before controlling the extra period to bounce back from a blowout loss at Clemson.
Jon Scheyer led Duke with 22 points, while Kyle Singler shook off a terrible shooting day to come up with a key overtime basket that helped the Blue Devils stay in front late.
Duke trailed by 13 at halftime and 38-22 early in the second half before rallying.
Jack McClinton scored 34 points to lead Miami (15-8, 4-6), including a 3-pointer to force overtime with 14.8 seconds left. Duke had a chance for the win in regulation, but Scheyer missed a 3 in the final seconds.
