After three consecutive losses and being on the verge of falling out of the top 25, North Carolina won seven straight games before a loss at the buzzer to Miami Tuesday night.

It went in and the Hurricanes mobbed the senior guard near midcourt, as Miami upset No. 9 North Carolina 91-88 in a wild finish Tuesday night in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Seventh Woods, Brandon Huffman and Garrison Brooks react during their loss to the Miami Hurricanes.

As impossible as it seems to believe, it's true; Joel Berry II and Theo Pinson only have one more game left at the Dean E. Smith Center in their storied careers at North Carolina. Oh yes, it went in for the 91-88 win. For the rest of the half, UNC (22-8, 11-6 ACC) threatened to close the gap but could never quite deliver.

Miami, which lost a 13-point second-half lead in an 83-75 loss at home to fifth-ranked Duke on January 15, didn't collapse in Chapel Hill.

LOS ANGELES, CA - MARCH 26, 2015: Joel Berry II drives to the basket in a Sweet 16 loss to Wisconsin.

I can stun team-mate Hamilton and take his title, says Bottas
The talks came as cold temperatures as low as 2-3 degrees made getting temperature into the tyres nearly impossible on Tuesday. Cold weather ensured the morning's run was heavily restricted, and the session ran throughout the day without a break.

Although this was a huge setback for the Tar Heels, bigger and better things are still ahead. I got it. I looked at the clock when I was dribbling upcourt and it said 3 seconds left. Said Newton: "As soon as Berry hit the shot, I came around and I wanted the ball.When I was dribbling up court and it said three seconds left, I was like, "I've got to shoot it.' And once I did, it felt good coming out of my hand and then my arm made it go in for me".

Even though the finishing sequence was shades of Villanova, North Carolina can take solace that the significance of the game was nothing alike.

Berry (31 points, 5-for-8 from 3) was great and Luke Maye (14 and 10) got his usual double-double, but they couldn't overcome a Miami team playing as poised at it has all season.

The injury bug struck Pinson yet again at the start of the season, this time with a bone fracture in his right foot. "I can just take the ball myself and I can create plays", said Pinson, a point-forward who is the Tar Heels' best passer. "I always watch it on TV, somebody does it, and for me to actually do it in this moment out there against North Carolina is something I will remember forever". Incredibly, it was only the fifth 3-pointer of Newton's season.

The Greensboro, North Carolina native has averaged 12.5 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 6.0 assists per game.

Newton hit both ends of a 1-and-1 with 9.2 ticks remaining before Berry's 3-pointer with 4.1 to play tied it. While UNC battles Duke on Saturday, March 4, Miami plays Virginia Tech next, also on Saturday.
