Rion Brown sparked Miami from its offensive woes with back-to-back 3-pointers, and the Hurricanes ripped off an 18-0 run to bury woeful Georgia Tech 54-36 Thursday in the opening round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The teams combined to hit just 14-of-51 shots in the first half, which ended with Georgia Tech on top 20-19. But the Hurricanes (19-11) finally woke up, going ahead for good when Shane Larkin led a fast break and passed off to Brown, who spotted up for a 3 that made it 29-27. The next time down, Larkin found Brown open again behind the arc for another trey. The Hurricanes never let up, advancing to face No. 17 Florida State on Friday. Georgia Tech (11-20) ended a dismal first season under coach Brian Gregory.
