Box Score

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Jack McClinton scored 14 points, including two late 3-pointers to help Miami defeat No. 24 Virginia 68-60 Wednesday night.

McClinton's 3-pointer with 1:06 left put Miami ahead for good 61-58.

After J.R. Reynolds converted on two free throws to reduce the Hurricanes' lead to one with 52.1 seconds remaining, McClinton hit his second 3-pointer with 28.4 seconds to play.

Brian Asbury secured the victory with four free throws in the final 15 seconds and Miami improved to 11-16 and 4-9 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Asbury, Anthony Harris and Dwayne Collins each finished with 11 points, and Collins had 12 of his 14 rebounds in the second half.

Sean Singletary scored 17 points to lead the Cavaliers (18-8, 9-4 ACC).

"I never felt, during the course of the game, comfortable how we did offensively," Virginia coach Dave Leitao said. "Miami had the edge, especially in the second half, on how they approached the game mentally."

Harris' running jumper with 7:51 to play put Miami ahead 53-51 for its first lead since the first minute of the game.

The Hurricanes, who twice had 12-point deficits in the first half, tied it at 49 on Harris' 3-pointer with 9:31 remaining in the second half.

The Cavaliers ran off seven straight points in a 1:30 span late in the first half to build a 30-18 lead.
