Cats win on Wall's buzzer-beater

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky freshman John Wall scored 19
points - including the game-winning jumper with 0.5 seconds
remaining - to lift the fourth-ranked Wildcats to a 72-70 win over
Miami of Ohio on Monday night.
After Miami's Kenny Hayes hit a 3-pointer to tie the game at 70
with six seconds left, Wall raced down the floor and pulled up from
the wing. The ball fell through the net and Wall raced up the floor
pounding his chest in celebration as the crowd roared.
Patrick Patterson had 17 points and 10 rebounds and DeMarcus
Cousins had 10 points and 10 boards for the Wildcats (2-0).
Nick Winbush led Miami with 26 points and the RedHawks nearly
pulled off the upset thanks to making 15 of 26 3-pointers.
