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.
