Xavier Rathan-Mayes put on one of the most amazing five-minute stretches of individual basketball we have seen all season, scoring 30 points in the final 4:38 to try and bring Florida State back before Miami pulled out the 81-77 win to keep its NCAA tournament hopes alive.
At one point during the run, Rathan-Mayes did not miss a single shot — 6-for-6 on three-pointers, two layups and four made free throws — for 26 points in a 3:35 span.
“One of the greatest shooting performances I have ever seen,” Miami coach Jim Larranaga said after the game.
