Under coach Jim Larrañaga, Miami has proven a tough matchup for Duke. He’s 3-2 against the Blue Devils, and since his arrival before the 2011-12 season, Miami is one of two teams in the country to beat Duke at least three times (Notre Dame has done it four times). Last year’s national championship team was blown out by Miami at home, 90-74, and the 2012-13 team, led by Mason Plumlee and Seth Curry, lost 90-63 at Miami. In the return game that year, Ryan Kelly came back from a foot injury, scoring 36 points on 14 shots as the Blue Devils won that top-5 matchup 79-76. ... In statistician Ken Pomeroy’s rankings, the Hurricanes are 12th, and Duke is 18th. Miami is a balanced team, with the 22nd-most efficient offense and 18th-most efficient defense nationally. Duke is powered by its second-ranked offense and ranks 137th nationally in defensive efficiency.
