Miami Holds Off Wake Forest 74-73
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) – Reggie Johnson hit two free throws with 4 seconds left and Miami survived a rimmed-out 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat last-place Wake Forest 74-73 on Wednesday to snap a 13-game Atlantic Coast Conference road losing streak.
Playing in his hometown, Johnson scored 25 points and grabbed seven rebounds, calmly sinking both foul shots for the 20th lead change of the night.
Wake Forest was out of time outs, but quickly got the ball to J.T. Terrell, whose deep 3-pointer did a 360-degree role around the rim before falling out as the horn sounded.
Durand Scott added 17 points before fouling out for the Hurricanes (15-9, 4-6), who won their third straight game. It was Miami’s first win in six tries at Joel Coliseum.
C.J. Harris scored a career-high 24 points, including two free throws with 11.3 seconds left to give Wake Forest (8-16, 1-8) its last lead.
