CORAL GABLES, Fla. — With a steady din coming from the sea of orange behind the visitors’ basket, No. 1-ranked Duke had a tough time making a shot.
The Blue Devils went more than eight minutes without a field goal in the first half Wednesday night, and a sellout became a blowout for No. 25 Miami, which delighted a boisterous crowd with a 90-63 men’s college basketball victory.
The defeat was the third-worst ever for a No. 1 team, and Duke’s worst in nearly five years.
Durand Scott scored a season-high 25 points for the Hurricanes, and Kenny Kadji added a season-high 22. Shane Larkin had 18 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, and Durham, N.C., native Julian Gamble had 10 rebounds and four blocked shots.
Miami (14-3, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat a No. 1 team for the first time, taking control with a stunning 25-1 run midway through the opening half. The Blue Devils (16-2, 3-2) missed 13 consecutive shots despite numerous good looks, while four Hurricanes hit 3-pointers during the run that transformed a 14-13 deficit into a 38-15 lead.
Seth Curry, Tyler Thornton and Quinn Cook went a combined 1-for-29 for the Blue Devils, who shot a season-low 30 percent. Rasheed Sulaimon led them with 16 points.
Duke went 4-for-23 from 3-point range, while Miami went 9-for-19 and shot 57 percent overall.
No. 7 Indiana 72, Penn State 49: In Bloomington, Ind., Victor Oladipo scored 19 points, and Yogi Ferrell added 15 for Indiana.
The Hoosiers (17-2, 5-1 Big Ten) survived a sluggish shooting first half with strong defense and a fast second-half start.
D.J. Newbill had 18 points and Jermaine Marshall finished with 12 to lead Penn State (8-11, 0-7), which has lost seven straight overall and 12 straight on the road in league play.
La Salle 54, No. 9 Butler 53: In Philadelphia, Ramon Galloway went the length of the court for the winning basket with 2.7 seconds left for La Salle.
La Salle (13-5, 3-2 Atlantic 10) had not defeated a top 10 team in 33 years.
Butler had lived on last-second victories this season, including a buzzer-beater Saturday against Gonzaga. Just not at La Salle.
Andrew Smith’s layup with eight seconds left put Butler ahead 53-52 and it appeared the Bulldogs would survive another thriller.
But Galloway took the inbounds pass and went all the way for the stunner that helped flood the court with delirious fans. La Salle last defeated an AP Top 25 team on March 3, 2001, against No. 18 Saint Joseph’s, 91-90. The last time La Salle defeated an AP top 10 team was on Jan. 30, 1980, beating No. 8 Notre Dame 62-60, according to STATS LLC.
No. 15 New Mexico 66, Colorado State 61: In Albuquerque, N.M., Tony Snell scored 23 points and New Mexico held off a late Colorado State rally.
The Lobos (17-2, 4-0 Mountain West) led 54-32 with 12:26 left before the Rams (15-4, 2-2) began a comeback behind Dorian Green. He scored 11 points in a 20-5 run that cut the lead to 59-52.
Colorado State’s Wes Eikmeier hit a 3-pointer with 8.2 seconds left that made it 64-61, but Snell converted two free throws to preserve the victory.
Eikmeier led Colorado State with 20 points and Green finished with 14.
Drake 74, No. 17 Creighton 69: In Des Moines, Iowa, Richard Carter scored 20 points and Drake stunned Creighton, handing the Bluejays their first consecutive losses of the season.
Ben Simons added 13 for the Bulldogs (9-10, 3-5 Missouri Valley Conference), who blew a 16-point lead before rallying.
Grant Gibbs brought Creighton (17-3, 6-2) within 71-69 with 32 seconds left, and the Bluejays got the ball back on a steal. But Gibbs missed a layup and Simons sealed the win with a steal and two free throws with 0.5 seconds left.
Doug McDermott had 19 points to lead Creighton.
No. 20 Wichita State 62, Missouri State 52: In Springfield, Mo., Cleanthony Early scored 17 points, Carl Hall added 15 for Wichita State.
Missouri State, behind freshman Gavin Thurman, used a 19-1 run to take a 33-25 lead with 16:13 remaining in the game.
The Shockers came away empty on their first five possessions of the second half, then Early and Hall got more active in the offense, scoring all but two of the points in a 16-2 run that gave Wichita State (18-2, 7-1 Missouri Valley) a 41-35 lead with 10:53 to go.
Thurman had 21 points to lead Missouri State (5-15, 3-5).
