Miami (Fla.) earned its first trip to the Final Four in school history with a inspired 88-81 comeback victory over Texas Sunday in the Midwest Regional Final.

The fifth-seeded Hurricanes trailed by as many as 13 points in the second half before rallying past the second-seeded Longhorns in an Elite Matchup in the NCAA men’s tournament at the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City.

Senior guard Jordan Miller led Miami with 27 points on perfect shooting — 7-of-7 from the field and 13-for-13 from the free throw line.

Miami fell behind 64-51 with 13:30 left when Texas’ Tyrese Hunter made a jumper.
