Duke loss gives NCCU third-longest home winning-streak in college basketball

While the nation’s attention is focused on one college basketball streak in Durham ending, another one across town keeps on ticking. Duke saw its NCAA-leading 41 game home winning-streak end with a 90-74 loss to Miami on Tuesday night. That loss means North Carolina Central now owns the third-longest home winning streak in college basketball.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js NCCU beat South Carolina State 58-40 on Monday night to win its 29th consecutive game at McDougald-McLendon Gym. The last time NCCU tasted defeat at home came in a 63-57 loss to Eastern Kentucky back in Dec. 2012.

Gonzaga moves in to first place with 34 consecutive wins, while Arizona is just ahead of NCCU with 30 wins. NCCU will look for its 30th-straight win against Coppin State on Jan. 24.
