Leading by as many as seven point with 8:24 to go in the game, Rutgers couldn’t hold off the Hurricanes munch longer as Miami outscored Rutgers 19-5 down the stretch to stun the Scarlet Knights 68-61 down in South Beach.

“This is a learning opportunity, we’re going to be in a lot of close games when we go on the road,” head coach Steve Pikiell said. “When you play guards as elite as these guards, you’re going to make shots down the stretch. We had our chances down the stretch to win the basketball game, when you go on the road and play good teams that’s what you want. That’s what we had tonight.”

Rutgers led 57-49 before Bensley Joseph and Nijel Pack nailed back-to-back three’s that would tie the game at 56.

Finally at 5:11 mark Jordan Miller hit a three-ball for Miami to put the Hurricanes up 59-56.

Rutgers would tie it at 61 when Caleb McConnell hit a three with 2:45 to go, but Norchad Omier’s bucket and Nijel Pack’s three put the game away.

McConnell and Clifford Omoruyi both led Rutgers with 16 points a piece. Aundre Hyatt had 11 points and seven boards.
