Levance Fields hit a three-pointer with 4.7 seconds left in overtime to give No. 11 Pittsburgh a 65-64 victory over No. 6 Duke in a matchup of unbeatens last night at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Duke's Jon Scheyer took a running three and was able to grab the rebound and get off a final shot, but it was another miss for the Blue Devils (10-1).
Fields finished with 21 points for the Panthers (11-0).
Duke's Gerald Henderson, of Episcopal Academy, tied the game at 58 on a jumper with 56 seconds left in regulation. Pitt's Michael Cook missed a three with 23 seconds left and the Blue Devils worked for a last shot, Henderson's driving miss in the lane, but Kyle Singler got the rebound and his putback went off the rim.
Singler and Henderson both had 17 points for Duke.
Cook, a senior who has made 48 consecutive starts at forward for Pitt, hurt his left leg a minute into the overtime. He remained on the court for several minutes then was helped to the locker room. Afterward, he was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
"I told them at the timeout with 16 seconds left to win this one for Mike and then his best friend hits the winning shot after we come back the way we did," coach Jamie Dixon said.
The loss snapped Duke's 36-game winning streak in December, dating to Dec. 21, 2000, when it lost to Stanford, 84-83.
