SATURDAY HOOP

Winthrop (Eagles, 5,111 students, Rock Hill, NC) 76, #19 MIAMI 70

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Leading by 11 points early in the second half, the unbeaten Miami Hurricanes appeared on their way to another win.

Then, faster than you can find Winthrop on a map, the lead was gone. Soon the perfect record was gone, too.

Senior Chris Gaynor scored a career-high 21 points, and Winthrop made 10 of its final 13 shots Saturday to beat the No. 19-ranked Hurricanes, 76-70.

Miami fell to 12-1 in the first game of an Orange Bowl Classic doubleheader.
