    CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Krystal Saunders downed six 3-pointers and scored 22 points in helping Miami upset No. 20 North Carolina State 80-71 on Sunday.

    Miami (11-7, 3-2 ACC) led at the break 42-31 as Adrienne Motley (14 points) racked up eight points in the final minutes of the first half. NC State (16-3, 3-2) made no 3-point baskets in the half while the Hurricanes landed six from long range.

    Myisha Goodwin-Coleman's jumper and a layup by Markeisha Gatling moved NC State to within seven of the Hurricanes at 58-51 and set the stage for a comeback attempt by the Wolfpack. But Maria Brown and Krystal Saunders combined to make 6 of 6 from the penalty stripe in the final 45 seconds to seal the victory.

    Suriya McGuire scored 12 points and nabbed 10 rebounds for Miami.

    Gatling logged 25 points and the Wolfpack has now lost seven games in a row against Miami.
