CORAL GABLES, Florida — Adrienne Motley scored 21 points and No. 16 Miami reached 20 wins with a 61-53 victory over Duke on Sunday.

Jessica Thomas and Keyona Hayes added 13 points each and Erykah Davenport grabbed 15 rebounds for the Hurricanes (20-4, 8-3 ACC).

Duke (17-8, 6-5) — playing without leading scorer and rebounder Azura Stevens for the second straight game with a left foot injury — got 18 points from Oderah Chidom and 16 from Rebecca Greenwell.

Motley's 3-pointer with 6:37 left gave Miami a 16-point lead. Duke got within seven with 1:38 remaining before missing 4 of 5 shots.

Duke trailed by six in the third quarter after an awful first half, when it fell behind 27-11 after shooting 12 percent and missing all nine 3-pointers. The Blue Devils went over 11 minutes without scoring and 15 minutes without a field goal, including the entire second quarter when they made just two free throws.
