    CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- James Dews sank a follow with 30 seconds left to put the Miami Hurricanes ahead to stay Saturday, then grabbed a defensive rebound as time ran out to seal a seesaw victory over Wake Forest, 67-66.

    Dwayne Collins had 11 rebounds and a season-high 23 points for the Hurricanes (15-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), off to their best start in 50 years.

    Wake Forest (11-3, 1-1) had won seven games in a row, the past two in overtime. But the Demon Deacons couldn't get Miami into OT, missing two of four free throws in the final 1:26.

    After Dews put Miami ahead for good with the ninth lead change of the night, Ishmael Smith missed a jumper under heavy pressure with 3 seconds left. L.D. Williams tried to tip the ball in, but instead Dews grabbed the rebound.

    The last time Miami started 15-1 was in 1959-60.
