That was the case today, and in rather unexpected fashion.
But on this day, that is what we were gifted with.
It took all 40 minutes to decide, as Duke led 74-71 with 46 seconds following a layup by Paolo Banchero.
Chaos would ensure, as journeyman Charlie Moore got an and-1 layup, missed a free throw that Miami grabbed, and Kameron McGusty made a layup with 23 seconds left to put the Canes ahead 75-74.
Miami would add a free throw, and Trevor Keels missed a triple as time expired, giving Miami the 76-74 win.
