Greensboro, NC (Sports Network) - Durand Scott scored a career-high 32 points and Shane Larkin added 23, as ninth-ranked Miami-Florida reached the championship game of the ACC Tournament for the first time with an 81-71 victory over North Carolina State at Greensboro Coliseum.

Julian Gamble chipped in 10 points and Kenny Kadji contributed eight with nine rebounds for the Hurricanes (26-6), who struggled to beat Boston College in the quarterfinals on Friday but looked like a true top seed and led from start-to-finish in this one.

Scott Wood connected on six 3-pointers and finished with 21 points for North Carolina State (24-10), which beat Virginia Tech and Virginia in the first two rounds of the tournament before running into a buzz saw on Saturday.
