CORAL GABLES (AP) — No. 2 Syracuse held Miami without a basket for 7½ minutes down the stretch Saturday and made eight consecutive free throws in the final minute to remain unbeaten with a 64-52 victory over the Hurricanes.

Miami led 47-46 with less than 7 minutes to go but made only one field goal the rest of the way.

Syracuse (19-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) need one more victory to tie the school record for most wins to start a season, set two years ago. The ACC newcomers beat defending league champion Miami (10-9, 2-5) for the second time in three weeks.

Jerami Grant scored 16 points to lead the Orange, who had a 39-24 rebounding advantage.

Davon Reed scored 16 points for the Hurricanes, who kept it close by shooting 9 of 17 from 3-point range.
