College basketball: Miami beats No. 20 Georgia Tech 64-62 at buzzer

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — After missing a chance to seal the win, James Dews made a 15-footer at the buzzer Wednesday night to give Miami a 64-62 victory over No. 20 Georgia Tech.

Dews missed the front end of a one-and-one with 19 seconds left, then Iman Shumpert hit a layup for Tech to tie the game with 10 seconds to go. That capped a comeback by the Yellow Jackets, who trailed by 14 early in the second half.

Following a timeout, the Hurricanes moved the length of the court and Durand Scott fed Dews, who swished the winning shot.

The Hurricanes (17-7, 3-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) won for only the second time in the past eight games. Georgia Tech (17-7, 5-5) fell to 1-4 on the road in the league, while Miami improved to 11-1 at home this season.

The Hurricanes fell behind 8-0, then outscored Georgia Tech 41-19 the remainder of the first half.
