Miami defeated Virginia Tech 78-75 in Blacksburg on Wednesday night thanks to some late-game heroics from Charlie Moore.

Facing a tie game in the final seconds, Moore caught an inbounds pass on the run, made one dribble and then let it fly.


Moore finished the game with 13 points and a team-high 6 assists. All five Miami starters scored in double figures.

Kameron McGusty led the way with 19 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Jordan Miller also tacked on 18 points in the victory.

The win allows the Hurricanes to re-gain the No. 1 spot in the ACC with a 7-2 record. Florida State lost to Georgia Tech in Atlanta on Wednesday night and fell from first place to fifth place.

Duke, Notre Dame and Wake Forest are all a half game back from the Canes entering the weekend. North Carolina is tied with the Seminoles in fifth place with a 6-3 record.

Miami will put its first-place status on the line again this weekend vs. Georgia Tech.
