CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Reggie Johnson made a tie-breaking layup with 5.7 seconds left Tuesday night, and the No. 2-ranked Miami Hurricanes overcame a ragged offensive performance for the second game in a row to beat Virginia 54-50 and remain unbeaten in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Durand Scott added two clinching free throws with 4.1 seconds to go for the Hurricanes, who earned their 14th consecutive victory and took a big step toward their first league title. The win came two nights after they rallied late to beat Clemson 45-43.

The Hurricanes (22-3, 13-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) improved to 12-0 at home. They hold a 3 1/2-game edge over second-place Duke in the ACC as they chase their first league basketball championship.

Virginia (18-8, 8-5) fell to 0-6 in Miami.
