VIDEO: Miami with the comeback of the year

In one of the day's most meaningless games, tipping at the same time as UConn and Pitt with the right to play UNC on the line, Miami pulled off one of the most incredible comebacks these eyes have ever seen.

Down 53-43 with just 40 seconds left on the clock, the Hurricanes hit a couple threes, forced a couple turnovers, and still had a shot at winning the game at the buzzer:

UVA had just put a 20-2 run on the Hurricanes, turning a 37-28 deficit into a 50-39 lead with 2:12 left in the game, setting the stage for the exciting finish. The most incredible part about the comeback is just how back the Hurricanes were in the second half before the run. They had made just two of their 19 field goal attempts and scored 12 points in 19:20.

They nearly doubled it in the final 40 seconds of the game.

In the overtime, Garrius Adams hit a key three and Reggie Johnson scored a couple of buckets down low as the Canes took control.

It just goes to show you -- regardless of who is on the court, the game isn't over until the buzzer sounds.
