(AP) - Reggie Johnson scored 19 ints and grabbed 13 rebounds as Miami pulled away in the second half to defeat Massachusetts 75-62 Saturday for its fourth straight victory.
The Hurricanes (5-1) led for most of the second half, but a 3-pointer by Raphiael Putney, followed by a driving layup by Jesse Morgan, put the Minutemen (3-3) ahead 52-51 with 8:29 remaining.
But a 3-pointer by Rion Brown started a 13-3 run that gave the Hurricanes a 64-55 lead, their biggest of the game to that point, with 5:01 remaining.
In Miami's 67-59 upset of No. 13 Michigan State on Wednesday, the Spartans clogged the middle to prevent the 6-foot-10, 292-pound Johnson from making an impact. Against the Minutemen, who pressured the perimeter, the senior center had more room to operate. He shot 6-for-13 from the floor and made 7 of 8 free throw attempts.
His six blocked shots were a key part of the Hurricanes' defense, which held UMass to 28.6 percent shooting (18 of 63) including 7 of 32 from 3-point range.
UMass scored the first five points of the game and led most of the first half, but the Hurricanes scored the last nine points of the half to take a 30-25 lead at intermission.
Durand Scott added 15 points and Shane Larkin had 14 for the Hurricanes.
University of Miami redshirt junior defensive end Shayon Green has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference’s 2012 Brian Piccolo Award co-winner, ACC Commissioner John Swofford announced Thursday. Green shares the honor with Florida State senior running back Chris Thompson.
The Piccolo Award has been given annually since 1972 in memory of the late Brian Piccolo to the “most courageous” football player in the ACC. Piccolo was the 1965 ACC Athlete of the Year and played for the Chicago Bears before his career was cut short when he was stricken with cancer. His courageous fight against that disease was an inspiration to the Bears and the entire football community.
Green had to overcome four different major injuries. He twice tore the ACL in his right knee, once tore the meniscus in his right knee and also suffered a wrist dislocation forcing him to miss all or a major part of the 2009, 2010 and 2011 seasons. Finally healthy, Green led the Hurricanes in tackles and was one of the key leaders on the young Miami defense, with 38 of his 67 tackles unassisted. Green also added 2.0 tackles for loss and a fumble recovery. He is the first Miami defensive lineman to lead the Hurricanes in tackles for a season in more than 30 years.
“Shayon is an amazing individual with an unparalleled work ethic,” Miami head coach Al Golden said. “I cannot think of anyone who exemplifies the ideals of Brian Piccolo or is more deserving of this award than him. He has overcome a dislocated wrist and three separate knee surgeries to become our leading tackler and team captain. His commitment and perseverance is an inspiration to us all.”
Green is the third Miami player to be chosen to receive the Piccolo Award in the eight years since the Hurricanes became an ACC member, joining Frank Gore (2004) and Glenn Sharpe (2006).
(AP) - Senior Trey McKinney Jones scored a career-high 18 points and the Miami Hurricanes held No. 13 Michigan State without a field goal for a pivotal 5½-minute stretch in the second half in a 67-59 victory 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 they 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.
Keith Appling had 15 points for the Spartans (5-2), who lost for the first time since the season opener against Connecticut.
The Spartans cut down on their turnovers — they had 12 after totaling 20 in each of the past two games. They still struggled with their half-court offense, and stayed in the game only because they had 16 offensive rebounds.
The Spartans' point total was a season low. They were outscored 40-28 in the second half, when they went 11 for 30 from the field.
Two Michigan State players returned from injuries — Gary Harris and Travis Trice — but that wasn't enough to spark the offense. The Spartans trailed 48-42 with 10 minutes left, then went without a basket until Branden Dawson scored to cut the deficit to 57-47 with 4:55 left.
Shane Larkin and Durand Scott scored 15 points apiece for the Hurricanes, who went 9 for 16 from 3-point range and had only nine turnovers. Reggie Johnson had 10 points and 11 rebounds.
Harris had 12 points for Michigan State and Dawson added 11.
Scott penetrated easily at the outset and scored nine consecutive points to help Miami take the lead. Trice and Harris hit 3-pointers on consecutive possessions to give the Spartans their biggest lead, 28-23, and they were up 31-27 at halftime.
McKinney Jones hit from 3-point range for a 51-42 Miami lead, and made another 3 to beat the shot clock and make it 55-45.
Scott's two free throws gave the Hurricanes their biggest lead at 57-45 and Michigan State got no closer than eight points.
