CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) Jalen Cannon's layup with 1:02 left in overtime put St. Francis Brooklyn ahead for good, and the Terriers knocked off defending Atlantic Coast Conference champion Miami 66-62 on Friday night.

Wayne Martin scored 17 points, Cannon finished with 14 and Ben Mockford added 11 for the Terriers (1-0), who won despite missing their first 13 shots of the game.

Donnavan Kirk scored 16, Garrius Adams had 15 and Rion Brown scored 11 for the Hurricanes (0-1), who shot only 31 percent. Adams made a layup with 2.9 seconds left in regulation to tie the game, but Miami never led in the extra session.

Miami missed all 15 of its tries from 3-point range, the last of those a potential go-ahead try by Davon Reed after the Hurricanes forced a turnover down by two in the final seconds of overtime. The Hurricanes had made at least one in all 172 of their previous games at Bank United Center, the team's on-campus arena.

The Hurricanes unveiled three banners before the game to commemorate last season's ACC regular-season title, ACC tournament title and berth in the NCAA Sweet 16.

They'll be among a very small number of reminders of what Miami was a year ago.

Only 13.3 percent of the scoring from last season is back, and only one returnee - Brown - scored more than 47 points for that 29-win club. The `Canes were senior-laden a year ago, with Kenny Kadji, Durand Scott, Trey McKinney Jones, Julian Gamble and Reggie Johnson all exhausting their eligibility and star guard Shane Larkin leaving for the NBA two years early.

So it's a new-look Miami team now, and the start wasn't exactly smooth, either.

Even after the 0 for 13 start, St. Francis still found a way to lead 27-26 at the half. The Terriers finished the half 10 for 21 after that dreadful beginning while Miami was a mere 8 for 29 from the field in the opening 20 minutes.

Martin's layup with 7:47 left gave St. Francis a 47-40 lead, but the Hurricanes answered with a 10-2 run - taking the lead on a pair of free throws by Adams with 3:17 remaining.
