Duke Wins 5th Maui Invitational Title

LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) -- Duke is still the king of Maui. Tyler Thornton made sure of it.

Thornton capped a thrilling game between basketball behemoths, hitting an off-balance 3-pointer with 20 seconds left to give the sixth-ranked Blue Devils enough cushion to finish off a 68-61 win over No. 14 Kansas for its fifth Maui Invitational title.

Thornton hit one 3-pointer with 1:10 left and gave the Blue Devils the cushion they needed with his second, the shot clock winding down, a host of Jayhawks in his face.

Thornton's big 3s kept Duke (7-0) undefeated in Maui Invitational at 15-0.
