    CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Jack McClinton scored a career-high 34 points to lead Miami to a 95-93 win over Virginia on Saturday.

    Trailing 91-81 with 1:46 remaining, the Cavaliers ran off nine unanswered points in the next 1:06. Laurynas Mikalauska's 3-point play with 40.6 left reduced Miami's lead 91-90.

    Lance Hurdle's 3-pointer with 9.2 left put the Hurricanes (20-8, 7-7) ahead 94-90. After Sean Singletary's driving layup cut the deficit to 94-92, McClinton converted on one of two free throws with 3.3 left to give the Hurricanes a 95-92 lead.

    Singletary hit the first of two free throws with 0.9 left, but Miami's Anthony King tipped away his deliberately missed second attempt. Singletary finished with a game-high and career high 44 points for the Cavaliers (13-13, 3-10).

    McClinton scored 14 straight points for Miami, including three 3-pointers, during a 2:27 stretch of the second half.

    The Hurricanes enjoyed their biggest lead, 72-57, on Jimmy Graham's two free throws with 10:03 left. Graham scored a career-high 19 points.

    Jamil Tucker scored all 10 of his first-half points in the final 4:04 and Virginia entered the break up 39-35.
