It was a very bad night for Division I women's basketball in the Triangle.
Three teams played and three lost on the road, including Duke which fell for the first time in ACC play.
Jasmine Thomas (pictured) scored 19 points, but she was the only player in double figures for No. 6 Duke (18-4, 6-1 ACC), which had a three-game winning streak snapped.
Carolyn Swords had 14 points and Mickel Picco 12 for BC (13-10, 4-4), which shot 95.2 percent from the free-throw line.
Miami 80, UNC 69
Freshman Waltiea Rolle had her best game as a Tar Heel with 20 points and 13 rebounds, but the Hurricanes shot 80 percent from the free-throw line to 59.1 for UNC.
Shenise Johnson led Miami (15-7, 3-5), which had lost three straight, with 25 points while Riquna Williams added 19.
It was the second straight loss for the No. 9 Tar Heels (16-5, 4-3), who also got 10 points from Trinity Bursey and out-rebounded the Hurricanes 54-33.
UNC visits Duke on Monday night.
Liberty 64, NCCU 44
N.C. Central went looking for a big upset and couldn't get it done.
Avery Warley had 16 points and 11 rebounds, leading three players in double figures for host Liberty.
Joanna Miller paced NCCU (7-14) with 14 points while Latoya Bennett added 10.
Danika Dale had 15 points and Devon Brown 10 for the Flames (17-4), who outrebounded the Eagles 38-21.
NCCU's next game is on Tuesday night at Winthrop.
