GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Kyle Singler scored 27 points to help fourth-ranked Duke push ahead in the second half to beat Miami 77-74 in Saturday's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinals.
Jon Scheyer added 16 points, including eight in the go-ahead 15-0 run early in the second half that restored some sense of order in an upset-filled tournament. The top-seeded Blue Devils (28-5) trailed by three at halftime against the league's last-place team before rallying to reach the championship game, where they will defend their title against the winner of the North Carolina State-Georgia Tech semifinal later Saturday.
Freshman Durand Scott had 21 points for the 12th-seeded Hurricanes (20-13), who put up plenty of fight but couldn't follow their upsets of Wake Forest and Virginia Tech with a much bigger one. Miami was in the ACC semifinals for the first time in its history.
