CHARLESTON, S.C. -- James Dews scored 22 points and Dwayne Collins added 17 points to go with 15 rebounds, leading Miami past South Carolina 85-70 in the championship game of the Charleston Classic on Sunday night.

Collins was selected as the MVP of the tournament.

Miami (5-0) outscored the Gamecocks (4-1) 11-5 in the final 2:25 to clinch it. South Carolina led by as many as 11 points in the first half, but Miami came back to take a 34-31 halftime lead.

Miami outrebounded South Carolina 30-16 in the first half.

The Gamecocks played without forward Dominique Archie for most of the game. Archie injured his right knee and left the game with 13:29 to play in the first half and South Carolina leading 9-2. He did not return.

Miami reached the championship game by beating Tulane 74-54 in the opening round and North Carolina-Wilmington 67-60 in the second round.
