Gainesville, FL - Angel Rodriguez was unstoppable down the stretch, scoring Miami-Floridas final 11 points in a 69-67 upset of the eighth-ranked Florida Gators. New York Knicks Jerseys . Rodriguez made one of his five 3-pointers with 16 seconds left to give the Hurricanes a 68-67 lead. After taking a charge at the other end of the court, he made 1-of-2 free throws with 2.3 seconds remaining. Michael Frazier II missed a jumper at the buzzer. Rodriguez ended with 24 points and Miami snapped Floridas 33-game home winning streak. I thought the environment was tremendous, said Miami coach Jim Larranaga. I love the college atmosphere and the enthusiasm from the crowd. It gets you excited. For your freshmen, you dont know how they will respond, on TV, on the road, the hostile environment, so I was very proud how our team handled everything. James Palmer added 10 points for the Hurricanes (2-0), who trailed by 15 early in the second half. Eli Carter tallied 21 points for the Gators (1-1), who were without forward Dorian Finney-Smith due to a hairline fracture in his non-shooting left hand. Jon Horford and Frazier added 17 and 13 points, respectively. As painful as it is for me -- not that I want to see our guys lose -- but they need to learn what really goes into winning, said Florida coach Billy Donovan. As hard as that is to say, they just dont have a clue. Horford and Carter made 3-pointers to give Florida a 41-26 lead with 17:05 to play. And the score was 54-40 when Miami went on an 18-1 run. Rodriguez made a trio of 3-pointers during the surge that Tonye Jekiri capped with two free throws for a 58-55 margin. After Horford stopped the bleeding with a three, Rodriguez made three free throws to spark his teams late charge. Horford made two free throws and added a 3-pointer to give Florida a 63-61 edge with 2:18 to play. Rodriguez answered with a three, but Jacob Kurtz made a layup for the Gators. Rodriguez made 1-of-2 from the line and Carter responded with a layup to give Florida a 67-65 lead. On the next Miami possession, Sheldon McClellan pulled down a big offensive rebound when Rodriguez was off the mark from 3-point range. Following a timeout, the former Kansas State guard redeemed himself by connecting from the top of the arc. Carter was called for a charge at the other end. Florida led 33-21 at the half. Game Notes These two teams met for the first time since Floridas 74-60 home win in the 2009 NIT ... Finney-Smith suffered the injury in Floridas season opener against William & Mary ... The Gators will play the back end of the home-and- home series in Miami next year. Courtney Lee Jersey . The Detroit Tigers slugger fell short in his bid to become the first player to win the Triple Crown in successive seasons. Patrick Ewing Jersey . Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel also accused Pistorius of tailoring his testimony to fit the evidence at the scene. Pistorius denied the accusations. Nel alleged that the Olympic runner changed his aim with his 9 mm pistol to ensure that he hit Steenkamp as she fell back against a magazine rack in a toilet cubicle. BUFFALO, N.Y. -- First, Patrick Kane gave his family and friends something to cheer about by scoring a highlight-reel goal in a rare trip home to Buffalo on Sunday night. Then, Kane stuck around an hour after the Chicago Blackhawks 2-1 victory over the Sabres, by posing for pictures and signing autographs in the stands. As homecomings go, Kanes was nearly complete except that his beloved grandfather Donald Kane was not around to see it after passing away last month. "No matter what, youre going to miss him," Kane said, following only his fourth NHL game at Buffalo. "But life goes on, and I think more importantly, I have a lot of family here at the game that came and supported me." Coach Joel Quenneville saw a jump during a performance in which Kane snapped a five-game goal drought that began after his grandfathers death. "I thought Kane was special," Quenneville said. "He was a threat and had the puck on his stick tonight: very dangerous and nice to see him play well here at home." Kane opened the scoring 3:12 in, by capping a breath-taking rush. Bursting past defenceman Christian Ehrhoff, Kane snapped a shot through the legs of defenceman Chad Ruhwedel that beat goalie Jhonas Enroth over the left shoulder. Kane nearly made it 2-1 with 8 minutes left in the second period, when he got in alone behind the Sabres defence only to have his backhander stopped by Enroth. He also scored into an empty net, but a second after the final horn sounded. Captain Jonathan Toews secured the win by scoring the go-ahead goal 1:34 into the third period. Corey Crawford stopped 20 shots, and the Blackhawks (38-13-14) snapped a two-game road skid. Drew Stafford scored for the league-worst Sabres (19-37-8), who had a three-game home winning streak snapped. Stafford capped a nifty three-way passing play to tie the game midway through the first period. Tyler Ennis started it by finding trailing forward Cory Conacher driving up the left wing. Conacher drew Crawford from out of the net and slipped a pass into the crease where Stafford jammed it in after his first chance was blocked by Brent Seabrook. The assist for Ennis made up for a goal he had disallowed a few minutes earlier, when he was called for hooking Crawford. "I didnt tthink it was a penalty, and frustrated that I had the goal taken away," Ennis said. Phil Jackson Jersey. "But I dont think that was the turning point." The difference was the Sabres ongoing difficulties on offence, which has managed a league-low 122 goals. Buffalos power play went 0-for-5 on Sunday, and is 0-for-10 over its past four games. "What do we take out of that one?" Ennis said. "One: Jhonys playing great. Two: Weve got to stay out of the box. And, three: Our power plays got to be better." Enroth stopped 29 shots and had little chance on either of the two goals he gave up. With the game tied at 1 and the Sabres mounting a threat in Chicagos end to open the third period, Toews answered by capping a 3-on-2 rush the other way. Andrew Shaw crossed Buffalos blue line and found Brandon Saad breaking up the right wing. Saad drew Enroth his way before steering a pass through the crease to Toews, who then snapped it in the open side. It was Toews 25th goal of the season and sixth in four games. Toews has shown little sign of a post-Olympic hangover after he helped Canada win a gold medal at Sochi. "I think hes returned from the Olympics in great shape, very confident," Quenneville said. "He just seems to have the knack, has good pace with it, has the puck a lot as well. And when hes around the net, hes getting rewarded." The Blackhawks extended their win streak to five games against the Sabres. And with 90 points, they jumped into third place in the Western Conference standings, a point ahead of idle San Jose. NOTES: Kane was the last Chicago player off the ice following pregame warmups and got a big cheer after flipping a puck into a large crowd of Blackhawks jersey-wearing fans behind the teams bench. ... Sabres C Conacher made his debut with Buffalo since being claimed Wednesday, a day after being waived by Ottawa. Conacher played college at Buffalos Canisius and is from nearby Burlington, Ontario. ... The Sabres suspended D Rostislav Klesla for failing to report to the teams AHL affiliate in Rochester. Acquired in a trade with Washington on Wednesday, Klesla told Canadian broadcaster TSN that he intended to not finish the NHL season, and instead planned to continue his career in Europe.
