A dynamite defensive specialist, Sylvia Bullock of Anchorage isn’t known for her offensive game.

But that doesn’t mean she can’t score.

The University of Miami starting center drilled the go-ahead jumper inside the final minute to propel the sixth-ranked ‘Canes to a 76-74 victory over Maryland in front of a crowd of 11,000 fans.

Bullock, of South High fame, finished with 8 points and 7 rebounds in 30 minutes. Even more, she added an assist and blocked a shot.

Maryland took a 72-71 lead with 54 seconds left before Bullock rescued Miami [22-3] with a clutch jump shot 15 seconds later to give her team the lead for good.
