CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) – Angel Rodriguez shook a shooting slump by making three 3-pointers and added 11 assists and five rebounds to help No. 15 Miami beat No. 24 Duke 80-69 on Monday night, the Blue Devils’ fourth loss in five games.

Rodriguez scored 13 points for the Hurricanes, who led for the final 24 minutes. Sheldon McClellan scored 21 points and benefited from Rodriguez’s most spectacular assist late in the game.

Miami (16-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat a ranked team for the third time this season.

Rodriguez came into the game 4 for 30 from 3-point range in league games but went 3 for 7 from beyond the arc.

Duke (15-6, 4-4) entered the game ranked fifth in the nation in scoring at 85.7 points but continued a recent offensive slump.

Brandon Ingram led Duke with 19 points.
