    CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Tracy Smith and Javier Gonzalez scored 19 points to lead North Carolina State to a 71-66 victory over Miami on Saturday.

    The Wolfpack (16-13, 4-10 Atlantic Coast Conference) took the lead for good on Dennis Horner's two free throws with 1:10 left for a 64-63 lead. Gonzalez converted six free throws in the next 35 seconds to secure the North Carolina State victory.

    Down by nine early in the second half, North Carolina State took a 57-54 lead on Gonzalez's 3-pointer with 5:06 remaining but James Dews' 3-pointer with 3:32 left tied it 59-59.

    The Wolfpack suffered a scare when Smith favored his right knee after colliding with Miami's Durand Scott with 5:45 left in the second half. Smith was escorted to the bench but returned on the next dead ball.

    Dwayne Collins led Miami (18-10, 4-10) with 15 points.
