CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Mike Krzyzewski claimed his halftime pep talk had nothing to do with Duke's dramatic turnaround Wednesday night."I don't even remember what I said," Krzyzewski said. "Nothing complimentary."At the time, there was little to praise. The No. 6-ranked Blue Devils dug a 12-point halftime hole, then used smothering defense to rally and beat the Miami Hurricanes 81-74.
Big Three Key Comeback
After scoring nine of Duke's 25 points in the first half, the Blue Devils' trio of Jon Scheyer, Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith combined to score 49 of the team's 56 second half points.
