Harrell's double-double lifts Cards over Canes

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Montrezl Harrell had 21 points, 14 rebounds and key free throws in the final minute to give No. 12 Louisville a 55-53 win over Miami on Saturday.
   
Down 53-52, Louisville's Terry Rozier tipped Deandre Burnett's pass into the hands of Harrell with 55 seconds left. That set up Chris Jones' drive and pass to Harrell on the opposite end. He was fouled on a layup attempt and hit two free throws with 35.6 seconds left to put the Cardinals up for good.
   
Burnett tried to dribble out of trouble on Miami's next possession but again turned it over, losing the ball to Harrell. Harrell was fouled with 10 seconds left and hit the first free throw for the game's final margin.
   
Jones added 14 of his 17 points in the second half for Louisville (21-6, 9-5 Atlantic Coast Conference). He returned from a one-game suspension.
   
Sheldon McClellan scored 17 points and Tonye Jekiri added 13 points and 15 rebounds for Miami (17-10, 7-7).
