CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Malcolm Grant scored 16 points and made the game-clinching interception with less than 5 seconds left Wednesday night to help the Miami Hurricanes beat Clemson 76-73.
Hurricanes freshman Shane Larkin sank both ends of a one-and-one — his only points — for the game's final points with 5.4 seconds to go. Grant then picked off a pass by Tanner Smith.
Miami (10-6, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) defeated Clemson for the first time in six games since February 2008. The Tigers (9-9, 1-3) are on the verge of falling below .500 for the first time this season.
Kenny Kadji had 14 points for the Hurricanes. Their point total was a season high against Clemson, ranked 19th in the nation in scoring defense at 58.6 points per game.
