Posted:

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Austin Rivers scored 23 points, Seth Curry added 19 and No. 5 Duke held off Virginia Tech 70-65 in overtime Saturday.

Miles Plumlee added 15 rebounds and two free throws with 9.6 seconds left for the Blue Devils (25-4, 12-2), who made 6 of 8 foul shots in the final minute of OT to win their sixth straight and remain atop the Atlantic Coast Conference standings.

Dorenzo Hudson, one of three players with 16 points for the Hokies (15-14, 4-10), pulled them to 64-63 with a deep jumper with 1:19 left in overtime.

Mason Plumlee's free throw with 51.1 seconds left made it a two-point game, and had a hand in Hudson's face during his jumper that would have tied it.

After Rivers' free throw with 19.4 seconds left made it 66-63, Erick Green missed a layup and Miles Plumlee's free throws made it a five-point game.
