Jabari Parker was Duke’s leading scorer against Miami with 17 points. • Duke used the starting lineup of Quinn Cook, Rodney Hood, Amile Jefferson, Matt Jones and Jabari Parker for the third straight game. Cook and Parker have started all 19 games in 2013-14. • Duke led just 19-17 with 6:39 remaining in the first half but closed out the final 5:24 on a 14-4 run.
