    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Jack McClinton scored 23 points and Miami held off a late-game rally to lead the Hurricanes to a 69-63 win over Virginia Commonwealth in the second round of the O'Reilly Auto Parts Puerto Rico Tip-Off on Friday.

    The Hurricanes (3-0) led 36-21 at the half and by as many as 13 points with four minutes to play. The Rams went on a 12-4 run, highlighted by eight points from Eric Maynor, to cut the lead to 63-58 with 26 seconds remaining. The Hurricanes sank all six free throw attempts to shut down the Rams.

    VCU (2-1) was held to 25 percent shooting in the first half and shot under 37 percent for the game. Miami shot 41.7 percent from the field in the first, but dropped to 25 percent shooting in the second half.

    Anthony King and Brian Asbury each added 10 points for the Hurricanes.

    Maynor led VCU with 27 points.

    Miami will play the winner of Friday's Providence vs. Arkansas matchup on Saturday. The Rams will play the loser of that game.
