CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- The Miami Hurricanes blew a 16-point second-half lead, had three players disqualified and still beat Maryland in double overtime Wednesday, 90-86. Freshman Shane Larkin scored six points in the second overtime for the Hurricanes, who sank seven consecutive free throws in the final 51 seconds to hang on. Sophomore Terrell Stoglin, who leads the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring, had a career-high 33 points for Maryland but shot only 9 for 26. Miami scored the first seven points of the second overtime, including two layups by Larkin. The Hurricanes (13-7, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) won their third game in a row. Maryland (13-8, 3-4) remained winless this season in four games on opponents' courts. Durand Scott scored a season-high 24 points for Miami and helped guard Stoglin. Scott also had eight rebounds and seven assists but fouled out late in the first overtime. Miami center Reggie Johnson had 13 points but fouled out with 5 minutes left in regulation. The junior's baskets included the first 3-point try of his career. The Hurricanes were without starting forward Kenny Kadji, sidelined indefinitely because of a head injury suffered during practice Tuesday. When Johnson departed, Miami played with four guards for much of the rest of the game. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon was ejected when he drew back-to-back technical fouls following a charging call on the Terrapins with 7:29 left. The technicals led to a five-point possession for the Hurricanes. Malcolm Grant sank three free throws, and Johnson then added a basket to give the Hurricanes their largest lead, 62-46. The Terrapins started their comeback with a six-point possession moments later when Johnson drew his fifth foul and a technical. The Hurricanes led 69-60 before failing to score in the final 3:12 of regulation, committing turnovers on three consecutive possessions. Stoglin's 3-pointer with a minute left made it 69-all. His jumper with 3 seconds left would have put Maryland ahead, but the ball barely hit the rim. Teammate Pe'Shon Howard missed a long jumper at the end of the first overtime. During warmups, Hurricanes officials said coach Jim Larranaga would miss the game because of flu-like symptoms that forced him to skip a shootaround earlier in the day. But moments before the pregame introductions, Larranaga walked onto the court and joined his team. Malcolm Grant scored 14 points, Trey McKinney Jones had 13 and Larkin scored 12 for Miami. Alex Len had 11 points and seven rebounds for Maryland. Mychal Parker scored on two early alley-oop dunks for the Terrapins, who led for much of the first half. But they missed their final six shots of the half, and Miami scored the last 10 points to go up 34-23.
