No. 1 Duke routed by No. 25 Miami 90-63

(Continued)

A Duke mistake — one in a long series — early in the second half had Krzyzewski red-faced and on the court, screaming at his team. But he couldn’t inspire a turnaround.

“Over-rated,” fans chanted with 3 minutes left. When the game ended, they poured onto the court and mobbed their team.

“The crowd I’m sure helped them some,” Krzyzewski said. “But they didn’t need much help.”

Back in North Carolina, fans of the Tar Heels savored the loss by their rivals. When the final score of the Duke game was posted on the video board at the North Carolina-Georgia Tech game, students chanted, “Go to hell, Duke!”

North Carolina 79, Georgia Tech 63

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Facing a last-place team and with a nationally ranked neighborhood rival looming ahead, North Carolina certainly could have looked past Georgia Tech.

Instead the Tar Heels came up with the closest thing they’ve had to a complete game in a while.

They led from start to finish of their third straight victory, a rout of the Yellow Jackets on Wednesday night.

“We just came out and played a whole game — finally,” big man James Michael McAdoo said.

Reggie Bullock scored 17 points, P.J. Hairston had 15 points and McAdoo added 14 for North Carolina (13-5, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference).

“I see our team gelling together — people knowing their roles, people knowing what they’re capable of doing,” Bullock said. “So it’s just going out there and just playing the game that coach (Roy Williams) recruited them to play.”

With former star Rashad McCants watching from behind their bench in a McAdoo jersey, the Tar Heels shot nearly 43 percent (30 of 70) to move above .500 in league play for the first time this season.

Next up: A visit to No. 18 North Carolina State on Saturday night.
