ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Rion Brown slammed home a dunk with 33 seconds remaining in the second half, breaking a tie score and leading the Miami Hurricanes to a 60-57 win over Arizona State Sunday afternoon at Honda Center to claim fifth place in the Wooden Legacy.

The Hurricanes (5-3), trailed by 10 points in the first half, and eight points in the second but were done in by a second half in which they shot 31 percent from the floor..

Miami didn't take its first lead of the game - on a jump shot by Garrius Adams - until 6:28 remained in the game.

Arizona State was clinging to a 57-56 lead with 1:56 left but missed key layups down the stretch.

James Kelly tied the score at 57-57 with a free throw, and the Hurricanes got the ball back when Arizona State guard Jahii Carson missed a layup.

Kelly grabbed the rebound and fired an outlet pass to Brown, who had gotten behind the defense. His got to the basket uncontested and slammed the ball home.

Another missed layup by Carson led to another Miami free throw, this time with 2.6 seconds left. The Hurricanes sealed the win when Adams intercepted Arizona State's last-chance, length-of-court inbound pass.

The Hurricanes had trouble throughout most of the game because they weren't able to match up well against Arizona State's 7-foot-1 center Jordan Bachynski. Four inches taller than Miami's tallest starter (Donnavan Kirk), Bachynski led all scorers with 20 points, most of which came on offensive rebounds and passes inside.

The Sun Devils also got outside help from Jermaine Marshall, who hit 3 of 7 3-point shots. He finished with 14 points.

The Hurricanes fell behind in the first half, thanks in part to Bachynski's presence in the paint, and a 29 percent shooting clip from the field. They also hit just 14 of 21 free throws, making their comeback that much tougher.

Miami climbed back into the game when Arizona State coach Herb Sendek gave Bachynski a breather. That opened up the lane for the Hurricanes, who were able to erase their deficit.

Davon Reed led the Hurricanes with 19 points, while Kelly added 11. Adams finished with nine points and nine rebounds.
