CORAL GABLES, Florida (Ticker) -- Miami's vaunted three-guard attack was no match for Shelden Williams and undefeated Duke.
Williams scored a career-high 30 points and added seven rebounds as No. 4 Duke remained undefeated with a 92-83 victory over Miami in an Atlantic Coast Conference contest.
The victory improved the Blue Devils to 14-0 - the third-best start in school history. The 1985-86 squad won its first 16 games and the 1991-92 club opened with 17 straight.
Williams, whose previous career-best was 27 against Virginia on March 12, 2004 made 11-of-12 shots from the floor and 8-of-8 from the line to offset 46 points from Hurricanes guards Guillermo Diaz, Robert Hite and Anthony Harris.
"Shelden (Williams) is a really good player," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "We wanted to get him the ball and he showed a lot of poise. These last two games in particular, he has been really good."
"We tried to not let (Robert) Hite or (Guillermo) Diaz touch the ball. Our youngest guys couldn't guard Diaz. He is strong and a heck of a competitive player."
Williams, a junior, had 16 points and 11 rebounds in an 86-74 triumph over North Carolina State on Sunday.
"We got him involved a lot tonight and exploited him down low," Duke guard Daniel Ewing said. "He did a good job of finishing buckets and not forcing it. He let the game come to him and when he didn't have it, he kicked it out."
The Miami (12-4, 3-1 ACC) trio came into the contest averaging just over 49 points per game - the second-highest scoring trio in the conference behind Duke's Williams, J.J. Redick and Ewing.
And Williams got plenty of help from his talented teammates. Redick scored 21 points and Ewing added 16 on 7-of-10 shooting as the Blue Devils (14-0, 4-0) shot 61 percent (31-of-51) and coasted in this one, leading by as many as 19 in the second half.
"(Daniel) Ewing led us well and J.J. (Redick) gave us another good game."
Diaz led Miami with 25 points on 11-of-23 shooting. William Frisby added 18 and Harris scored 15 for the Hurricanes, who had their three-game winning streak snapped. Hite, who came into the game averaging 19 points a game, was held to six on 2-of-7 from the floor.
Miami outrebounded Duke, 37-30, grabbed 20 offensive rebounds and outscored the Blue Devils, 30-16, in the paint.
"I was pleased that we were able to score in the paint," Hurricanes coach Frank Haith said. "The big guys kept us in the game for a while and they made tremendous strides this season."
"This game should help our confidence," said Miami center Anthony King, who had 10 points and 10 rebounds. I grew up watching Duke so I was fired up to play them."
