RALEIGH, N.C. - Bruce Brown Jr. scored 19 points and No. 25 Miami shot 58 percent to hold off North Carolina State 86-81 on Sunday.
Anthony Lawrence II and Ebuka Izundu each had 15 points for the Hurricanes (14-4, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). Miami led the entire second half but struggled to put the Wolfpack away in a game that came down to the final seconds.
Miami came into Raleigh as one the ACC's worst 3-point shooting teams, but made 10 of 19 tries from behind the arc for its best output in a league game.
The Hurricanes also shot 60 percent after halftime while committing just 10 turnovers, avoiding the miscues that can fuel the Wolfpack's pressure defense and lead to transition scores.
Omer Yurtseven had 28 points for the Wolfpack (13-7, 3-4), who shot 63 percent after halftime and 54 percent for the game.
