The Canes jumped out to a three-point halftime lead before GSU took the game into overtime. Miami outscored its opponent 14-13 in the extra session to pull off the victory.
Donnavan Kirk finished the game with his second straight double-double, as he scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. He was, again, Miami's top performer. Rion Brown added 15 points and seven rebounds.
Jelani Hewitt led GSU with 27 points, but his strong effort wasn't quite enough.
Miami (1-1) will play host to Texas Southern this Thursday.
