Miami 79, North Carolina State 78

Reggie Johnson's tip-in with under one second remaining on the clock helped No. 14 Miami-Florida survive for a 79-78 win on the road versus 19th-ranked North Carolina State Saturday in a battle of Top-25 ACC teams. Two Tyler Lewis free throws gave the Wolfpack (16-6, 5-4 ACC) a three-point lead with 1:12 remaining. Durand Scott went to the charity stripe twice on Miami's next two possessions and connected on 2-of-4 shots, but the Hurricanes still trailed by one. After getting the ball back with 10 seconds left, Shane Larkin drove to the hoop and missed a layup, but Johnson was there to save the day for the difference-making tip-in for the Hurricanes (17-3, 8-0), who have won nine straight and won for the first time in seven tries at N.C. State.
