Duke must go two overtimes to beat Miami

Monique Currie scored 15 of her 43 during the second overtime to help No. 1 Duke hold off Miami 99-93 on Sunday.

Albrey Grimsley's short jumper for Miami with 31 seconds left in the first overtime tied it at 78. A turnover with 11 seconds left gave the Hurricanes a chance to win, but Chante Black blocked Renee Taylor's shot with a second left.

Currie's 3-pointer with 3:30 left put the Blue Devils (24-1, 12-1) up 83-80. She also went 10-for-10 on free throws during the final 1:33.
