CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Marcus Georges-Hunt followed his own miss to tip in the winning basket at the buzzer Wednesday night, and Georgia Tech rallied past Miami 71-69 to prevent the Hurricanes from clinching the outright Atlantic Coast Conference title.

The Hurricanes (23-6, 14-3 ACC), who squandered an 11-point lead in the second half, lost for the third time in four games and fell to 13-1 at home. They are assured of a share of the title and can still clinch the championship outright by winning at home Saturday against Clemson.

Georgia Tech (16-13, 6-11) beat a Top 25 team for the first time since March 2010.

Julian Gamble's three-point play with 12 minutes to go put Miami up 56-45 before the Yellow Jackets rallied. Robert Carter Jr. intercepted a pass to set up the final possession.
