CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Rion Brown scored 21 points to lead Miami to a 71-64 victory over Notre Dame on Wednesday night.

The Hurricanes (13-13, 4-9 Atlantic Coast Conference) built a 15-point lead early in the second half and withstood a late Irish rally in the final 5 minutes.

Notre Dame twice got to within a one-point deficit, the second on Demetrius Jackson’s layup with 22 seconds remaining that cut Miami’s lead to 65-64.

Brown’s two free throws with 21 seconds left put Miami ahead, 67-64. Raphael Akpejiori added two throws with 11 seconds remaining after he was fouled rebounding Demetrius Jackson’s missed shot.

Pat Connaughton scored 22 points for Notre Dame (14-13, 5-9).

The Hurricanes never trailed after a 13-0 run midway through the first half. Garrius Adams’ jumper with 8:59 remaining capped the run and gave Miami a 24-10 lead.

The conference win was Miami’s first at home this season after six previous losses.
