No 12 Miami outlasts No. 3 Virginia 64-61


No 12 Miami outlasts No. 3 Virginia 64-61

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Miami shook off any lingering effects from its most lopsided loss of the season.

Davon Reed scored 21 points and the 12th-ranked Hurricanes rebounded from a 25-point thrashing at North Carolina with a 64-61 victory over No. 3 Virginia on Monday night.

"Among the captains we said we can't feel sorry for ourselves," Reed said. "That game hurt but it's in the past."

Reed's two free throws with 3.9 seconds remaining increased Miami's lead to its final margin.

London Perrantes' game-tying attempt from 40 feet at the buzzer bounced off the backboard for Virginia.

"We needed to be the aggressors from start to finish tonight and we were," said Reed, who shot 6 of 8 from the field including 5 of 6 on 3-point attempts. "We knew what was at stake and we responded."

Miami (22-5, 11-4) took over sole possession of second place in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Hurricanes, Cavaliers (21-6, 11-5) and Louisville began Monday tied with identical conference records.

"We got knocked down big time on Saturday and you've got to get back up and fight to show what you're made of," Miami coach Jim Larranaga said. "I thought we did that tonight against an outstanding Virginia team."

Virginia rallied from an eight-point deficit with seven straight points behind Malcolm Brogdon's jumper and 3-pointer and Perrantes' layup with 1:22 remaining that got the Cavaliers within 60-59.

Tonye Jekiri converted one of two free throws with 36 seconds left to make it 61-59. Brogdon's 3-point attempt with 23 seconds left bounced off the rim.

"It was decent, it wasn't great," Brogdon said of his attempt. "It was a little off the dribble. I got it off but it didn't go in."

Brogdon tied a career high with 28 points and was the only double figure scorer for the Cavaliers. He shot 12 of 18 from the field and was 4 of 7 from beyond the arc.

"We fought hard in the second half, got on the offensive glass, played pretty spirited," Virginia coach Tony Bennett said. "I thought in the first half we were out on the edge with our transition defense. We were on our heels and they were really attacking."

The Cavaliers overcame a 10-point deficit early in the second half and outscored Miami 19-8 over a 7:16 stretch. Brogdon hit three jumpers during the spurt and Mike Tobey's layup with 9:36 left gave Virginia its first lead, 48-47, since 5:29 remaining in the first half.

Reed hit consecutive 3-pointers early in the second half as Miami increased a five-point halftime lead to 39-29.

Virginia's Isaiah Wilkins took a knee to the head with 4:51 remaining in the second half and stayed on the court while treated by the training staff. A dazed Wilkins eventually reached his feet and was escorted to the bench.

"He got hit, he had a headache," Bennett said. "Hopefully he'll be OK. We need his defensive prowess."

The Cavaliers missed 11 of their first 15 shots while the Hurricanes misfired on four of their first 11.


The Hurricanes improved to 4-2 against Top 25 teams.


Anthony Gill finished with a career-high four blocks for the Cavaliers.


Miami: The Hurricanes snapped a three-game losing streak against the Cavaliers

Virginia: Brogdon made his first eight shots of the second half before his late miss.


Miami hosts No. 11 Louisville on Saturday.

Virginia hosts No. 7 North Carolina on Saturday.

Not only did UMBC own Virginia on the court, they owned the Twitter world

Not only did UMBC own Virginia on the court, they owned the Twitter world

They said it could not be done, no No. 16 seed would ever beat a No. 1 seed. The odds would be too great and the obstacle too steep.

As we all know, University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), just proved that all wrong.


All season the top-ranked Virginia Cavaliers dominated their opponents. They dictated pace, held opponents to less than 55 points, and smothered teams by forcing turnovers.

The roles filled on Friday evening and with an up-tempo 74-54 victory, UMBC proved the impossible.

The hardwood is not the only place that UMBC owned last night, they grabbed headlines, attention, and thousands of fans (literally) on Twitter.

Someone grabbed a hold of the UMBC Athletics Twitter account and took the upset by storm.

It all started when Seth Davis poked the bear:

and they were relentless.

Oh yeah, I forgot Seth Davis:

Then they started get snarky and owning everyone:

As someone who graduated from a commuter school, I can relate:

More Seth Davis:

Back to Twitter:

I guess that application wave actually was a thing or people wanted to know what ‘UMBC’ stood for:

Game. Set. History.

Now here come the shots against other schools:

Yeah, don’t jump on this bandwagon Terps fans. Stay in College Park:

I did not take long for other social media icons to start reaching out:

Oh and Seth Davis eventually did apologize:

Started the night at 5,588 and jumped up to 51.7 K. No one cares what you think Steven:

If you liked what you saw thank Zach Seidel, not an intern, not a student athlete who provided those tweets last night.

Zach, you just earned yourself a raise and we’ll see you in the Second Round.

NCAA Tournament 2018: UMBC vs. Kansas State Second Round, time, TV channel, how to watch

After shocking the world and doing what no other team has done before, the UMBC Retrievers are not done yet.

Yes, UMBC became the first No. 16 seed to knock off a No. 1 seed. And against a Virginia team that was the only dominant squad in all of college basketball, no one expected it (except Troy Machir).

Remember the Retrievers barely made it to the NCAA tournament with a buzzer-beater from Jairus Lyles.  

Lyles scored a game-high 28 points in their historic upset as the team went 50 percent from behind the arc with 12 three-pointers.

Up next they play No. 9 Kansas State who looked shaky in their First Round win over Creighton. Can the Cinderella run for the Retrievers continue? Either way anything they do would be a first for a No. 16 seed going forward.

Virginia and UNC UMBC will match up on Sunday in Charlotte, NC.
