NC STAGE 79, MIAMI 77 ( OT )

Speaking of brains turning to mush, check out the Canes.

Gavin Grant's backcourt steal and layup with 2.1 seconds remaining in overtime gave NC State a 79-77 victory over No. 21 Miami Saturday night at the RBC Center.

Grant, who scored 18 of his 24 points in the second half, had just missed a drive to the basket with the Wolfpack trailing by two points. But freshman teammate J.J. Hickson was there for the put back with 3.9 seconds to play.

Then, Miami's Anthony King tried to inbound the ball to teammate Jack McClinton, but threw it right to Grant instead. Grant, already a veteran of making last-second baskets to lead the team to wins over Villanova and Davidson, took the ball right over the top of King for the game-winning basket.
