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.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
