Story body

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Duke's done.

Eric Maynor hit a 15-foot jumper with 1-point-8 seconds left to give Virginia Commonwealth a 79-to-77 upset victory over the Blue Devils in the first round of the NCAA tournament tonight. Maynor finished with 22 points, six of them in the final minute-24.

Duke lost a first-round game for the first time since 1996. The loss also ends the Blue Devils' string of Sweet 16 appearances at nine. It was the longest active streak and second-longest behind North Carolina's 13-year run.

Greg Paulus scored a career-high 25 points for Duke, seeded sixth in the West Regional. Josh McRoberts added a career-high 22 points and had 12 rebounds.
