Danielle Butts' buzzer-beater lifts UNC over Miami

Associated Press

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Danielle Butts beat the buzzer with a game-winning jump shot to help No. 11 North Carolina hand Miami a rare home loss 64-62 Sunday.

With UNC (19-2, 7-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) trailing 62-60, the Tar Heels' Tierra Ruffin-Pratt stole the ball from Krystal Saunders and hit two free throws after being fouled by Stefanie Yderstrom.

When Suriya Mcguire missed a layup for Miami (14-6, 5-4) with 5 seconds remaining, UNC's Brittany Rountree gathered the rebound and moved the ball up the court to Butts, who hit the winning jumper.

The loss snapped an 11-game home winning streak for Miami and was just its second loss in its past 54 home games.

The lead changed hands 10 times in the second half, including seven times during a 4-minute stretch in the middle of the frame.

Ruffin-Pratt paced the Tar Heels with 19 points.

Miami's Morgan Stroman scored a career-high 28 points.
