Sulaimon, No. 23 Duke Beat Virginia 69-65

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Rasheed Sulaimon hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 18.8 seconds left and No. 23 Duke beat Virginia 69-65 on Monday night.

Sulaimon finished with a season-high 21 points and Rodney Hood added 14 for the Blue Devils (13-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Debuting at their lowest ranking since the last time they fell out of the AP Top 25 in February 2007, they let an 11-point lead with 3½ minutes slip away before avoiding a third loss in four games.

Malcolm Brogdon scored 17 points and Joe Harris added 15 for the Cavaliers (12-5, 3-1).

They erased that deficit by scoring 11 consecutive points, then took their first lead of the game when Brogdon's free throws with 36.5 seconds remaining made it 65-64.

Amile Jefferson grabbed Hood's air ball and kicked it out to Sulaimon who was waiting alone in the left corner.
