DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Reggie Johnson scored five of his career-high 27 points in overtime and Miami upset No. 7 Duke 78-74 on Sunday.
Kenny Kadji added 15 points for the Hurricanes (14-7, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), 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.
Rivers and Ryan Kelly missed 3s in the final seconds for Duke and Johnson added a free throw with one-tenth of a second remaining.
Johnson had 12 rebounds. Durand Scott added 11 points on 3-of-12 shooting for the Hurricanes, who had a chance to win it in regulation but couldn't get a shot off before the buzzer.
No. 9 Michigan St. 64, No. 23 Michigan 54
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Draymond Green had 14 points and 16 rebounds to lead Michigan State.
The Spartans (18-5, 7-3 Big Ten) ended a three-game skid in the rivalry and moved into sole possession of second place in the conference behind third-ranked Ohio State.
The Wolverines (17-7, 7-4) haven't won or lost consecutive games in nearly a month.
Green, who matched Michigan's rebound total by himself, played after spraining his left knee on Tuesday in a loss to Illinois.
Michigan's Tim Hardaway Jr. missed his first six shots and had a season-low four points on 1-of-10 shooting. Freshman Trey Burke finished with 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting.
The Spartans took control with a 17-7 run early in the first half and pulled away with eight straight points to take a 57-40 lead with just under 3 minutes left.
Michigan State outrebounded the Wolverines 40-16, including 12-3 on the offensive glass.
