CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The Miami Hurricanes overcame a season-high 28 turnovers and snapped a four-game losing streak Thursday night by taking advantage of Georgia Tech's poor shooting to win 59-57.
Miami built a 21-point lead with 13½ minutes left, then held on despite making only two baskets the rest of the way.
Sophomore Glen Rice Jr. scored a career-high 28 points for the Yellow Jackets, who shot a season-worst 27 percent. Miami foiled Georgia Tech's bid to force overtime when Iman Shumpert was called for charging with 9 seconds left.
The Hurricanes (13-9, 2-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) survived a tense finish after losing four consecutive games by a total of 11 points. The Yellow Jackets (10-11, 3-5) remained winless in seven road games this season and haven't won an away game in the league since Jan. 16, 2010.
