DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Mason Plumlee scored 12 points and No. 8 Duke held on to beat No. 16 Virginia 61-58 on Thursday night to snap the Cavaliers' 12-game winning streak.
Austin Rivers and Seth Curry added 11 points apiece for the Blue Devils (14-2, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Despite an off night from 3-point range, they shot 52 percent against one of the league's stingiest defenses, put together a game-changing run shortly after halftime, then held off Virginia's late push to claim their second straight win.
Mike Scott scored 23 points for the Cavaliers (14-2, 1-1). They pulled within three on Akil Mitchell's stickback dunk with 47.6 seconds left, then forced a stop and had the ball with about 13 seconds left. But Scott missed a 3-pointer from the corner and Jontel Evans missed a 3 from the wing as time expired.
