Duke rallies late, hands Virginia its first loss

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Tyus Jones scored 17 points and hit a clinching 3-pointer with about 10 seconds remaining Saturday night as No. 4 Duke ended No. 2 Virginia's 21-game home winning streak, 69-63.
   
Jones' 3-pointer was the fourth in the last four minutes for the Blue Devils (18-3, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who had missed 11 of 13 before hitting the critical long-range shots they needed.
   
Virginia (19-1, 7-1) started the second half with a 16-4 burst and led by 11 with just under 11 minutes to play before some ill-advised shots, turnovers and Duke's blistering shooting turned the tables.
   
Malcolm Brogdon led Virginia with 17 points and Justin Anderson had 11.
   
Quinn Cook, who scored 15, hit three 3-pointers in the last 4:38, including the one to give Duke the lead at 66-63 with 1:16 remaining. After Mike Tobey missed a free throw for Virginia, Tyus Jones hit the finisher with 9.9 seconds left, capping a game-ending 16-5 run for the Blue Devils.
