Heels get clutch win at Miami

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Harrison Barnes sank a 3-pointer with 6.6 seconds left, and North Carolina overcame an early 14-point deficit to beat the Miami Hurricanes 74-71 Wednesday night.

The Hurricanes have lost their past three games by a total of seven points.

The latest defeat came despite the Hurricanes' scoring 16 consecutive points in the first half.

The Tar Heels (14-5 overall, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won seven consecutive games against Miami (12-8, 1-5).

Barnes sank a 15-footer with 1:09 left to tie the score for the 11th time, at 71, and when the Hurricanes' Reggie Johnson missed an inside shot, the Tar Heels got the ball back.

Following a timeout, Barnes took a pass from Kendall Marshall and swished a shot from the right side. Miami's Malcolm Grant missed a 3-point try with one second left that would have forced overtime.
