WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.  - Suriya McGuire hit a game-winning layup after a magnificent spin move in the lane with just 5.3 seconds remaining, giving the Hurricanes a 79-78 win over Wake Forest Thursday night at the Joel Coliseum.

McGuire twice gave the Canes (14-5, 5-3 ACC) a lead in the game's final 32 seconds, but none more clutch than her game-winner, her second of the season. The first came against then No. 6 Penn in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. In the end, the Minneapolis native had a career-best 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting. Thirteen of her points came in the second half.

The Canes led by as much as 13 points with less than nine minute to play, but a 17-4 Wake Forest run over the next 4:23 tied the game at 69. For the remainder of the contest, the teams traded baskets, with McGuire hitting Miami's final two shots.

Seniors Shawnice Wilson and Stefanie Yderstrom had big first halves for Miami, on their way to 14 and 12 points respectively. Fellow senior Morgan Stroman had 10 points and a team best six rebounds.

 

The Hurricanes shot a season-best 55 percent from the floor, but was out-rebounded 35-23 on the night, giving up 24 second chance points.

The first half saw Miami shoot 63 percent from the field, its best first-half output of the season. UM previously shot 52 percent in the opening half against FAU on Nov. 23. Yderstrom led all Hurricane players with 10 points at the break, while Wilson and Stroman added eight each.

 

Fouls became an issue for both teams in the opening stanza as Miami and Wake Forest committed a combined 22 fouls. Five players for the Canes and four for the Demon Deacons each were riddled with two fouls by the break.

Despite the fouls, the Hurricanes held a 42-37 halftime lead, thanks to five points from Shanel Williams including her first three-pointer of the season and the final bucket of the half.

Three Demon Deacons (10-9, 3-4 ACC) reached double figures on the night, led by Chelsea Douglas' 18. Lakevia Boyton and Mykala Walker added 16 and 15 points respectively.

The Canes return to the court on Sunday in a Miami basketball double-header at the BankUnited Center. The women will face No. 11 North Carolina at 2 p.m. on ESPN2 while the 25th-ranked men's team will play host to rival Florida State on ESPNU at 6 p.m.
