    Associated Press

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Shenise Johnson scored 20 points and hit a pair of free throws with 18.2 seconds left to help lift Miami (No. 10 ESPN/USA Today, No. 11 AP) to a 56-53 victory over Virginia on Thursday night.

    The Cavaliers (14-6, 2-4 ACC) had two chances to tie on their final possession, but guard Ariana Moorer missed a 3-pointer with 5 seconds left and a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer from Jazmin Pitts from the corner did not reach the basket.

    Moorer led Virginia with 18 points.

    Miami (15-3, 6-1) outrebounded Virginia 44-35. Johnson had 12 points in the second half.

    Virginia led 33-29 at halftime, but the Cavaliers missed 13 of 24 free throw attempts overall.
