Durham, NC (Sports Network) – J.J. Redick hit for 30 points and became Duke’s
all-time leading scorer, as the No. 2 Blue Devils ran past Miami-Florida,
92-71, at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Redick now has 2,557 career points, one more than Duke’s previous record,
established by Johnny Dawkins (1982-86), the Blue Devils’ current associate
head coach. Redick, who shot 10-of-15 from the field, including 6-of-9 from
beyond the arc, broke the record on a three-point shot from the left corner
with just over four minutes remaining.
After the game, Dawkins joined Redick in a special half-court ceremony to
honor Duke’s new all-time scoring king.
Shelden Williams added 17 points and 15 rebounds for the Blue Devils (25-1,
13-0 ACC), who won their eighth consecutive contest and clinched the Atlantic
Coast Conference regular season crown.
Redick’s point total is now second all-time in the ACC, 30 shy of Wake
Forest’s Dickie Hemric (1953-55).
Guillermo Diaz had 23 points for the Hurricanes (14-12, 6-7), who dropped
their fourth consecutive game.
