We got us a little run goin' here against the ramblin' wreck.......

No offense to MC, but here is what you didn't or couldn't say:

No. 25 Miami overcame a slow start and poor shooting to win its Atlantic Coast Conference opener Saturday, 78-68 over Georgia Tech. Sophomore James Dews scored a career-high 18 points and junior Jimmy Graham matched a career high with 13 for the Hurricanes (14-1, 1-0), who fell behind by 12 points early and then went on a 31-11 run. The Hurricanes won despite missing their first 13 3-point tries. They shot 42 percent and went 2-for-19 from 3-point range but made up for it by forcing 18 turnovers, which led to 24 points. Miami's lone loss was to Winthrop. Jeremis Smith had a season-high 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Georgia Tech (7-8, 0-2). It has been six years since the Yellow Jackets had such a poor overall record this late in the season. The Hurricanes missed 10 consecutive shots early and fell behind 22-10 before Graham sparked their comeback. He scored seven consecutive points and started an 11-0 run that cut Georgia Tech's lead to 22-21. A basket by Dews shortly before halftime put the Hurricanes ahead to stay, 31-29. He made their first 3-pointer for a 46-38 lead and hit another to make it 51-40. Jack McClinton, Miami's leading scorer this season at 15.5 points per game, was shut out for the first 14 minutes but still finished with 14 points. Brian Asbury scored 11, and Dwayne Collins had five blocks and five rebounds. Anthony Morrow added 17 points for the Yellow Jackets and Lewis Clinch had 13. Georgia Tech ran off 12 straight points to lead 14-4 with Morrow and Clinch hitting 3-pointers. The Hurricanes tied the score at 27 on a basket by Anthony King. They were up 33-31 at halftime and outscored Georgia Tech 18-9 to start the second half. The Yellow Jackets were never closer than seven points in the final 14 minutes.

here's something else you didn't see: when watching espn for scores, miami and ga t didn't play. once again espn failed to list a miami game. it gives a lift to see a winning score. good thing to go to a miami game or look at the internet and not depend on espn.
