CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Senior Trey McKinney Jones scored a career-high 18 points and the Miami Hurricanes beat No. 13 Michigan State 67-59 on Wednesday night.
McKinney Jones went 5 for 7 from 3-point range, including a basket that capped a 14-2 run to start the second half that put them ahead 41-33.
The lead grew to 57-45, and the Hurricanes went 8 for 8 from the free throw line over the final 2:11 to seal the victory.
Miami (4-1) held the ball in the final seconds to run out the clock, and students then stormed the court, hoisting at least one player and the team mascot onto their shoulders and chanting, “ACC.” The game was part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
The Spartans (5-2) lost for the first time since the season opener against Connecticut.
