No. 8 Miami 72, Boston College 50

Associated Press  |  Last updated February 05, 2013
Kenny Kadji scored 10 points during a span of four possessions to start a second-half surge Tuesday night, and No. 8 Miami remained unbeaten in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a 72-50 victory over Boston College. Reserve junior Rion Brown tied a career high with 22 points, and Kadji had 16 points and eight rebounds in 21 minutes for the Hurricanes, who went 11 for 22 from 3-point range. They held an ACC opponent to 50 points or less for the fourth time. The Hurricanes (18-3, 9-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won 10 consecutive games and are 10-0 in their on-campus arena, winning each of the past three home games by at least 22 points. Nine victories in the ACC matches their highest total ever and they are the last unbeaten team in league play among the major conferences. Boston College (10-12, 2-7) lost to Miami for the second time in three weeks, and for the sixth straight time. The Hurricanes' ranking this week is their highest since 1960. But their streak of sellouts - a rarity for the perennially overlooked program - ended at two games. Attendance was 5,149. Durand Scott had 11 points and seven rebounds for Miami while Shane Larkin added 10 points and five assists. Olivier Hanlan scored 16 points for the Eagles and Ryan Anderson had 14 points and 11 rebounds, but Miami outrebounded Boston College 42-30. The Eagles shot only 37 percent, including 5 for 23 from 3-point range. Joe Rahon, averaging 10.8 points per game, did not score. When Boston College reduced its deficit to six points early in the second half, Miami responded with a 17-4 run to put the game away. The spurt started with the 6-foot-11 Kadji. He sank a runner, hit a 3-pointer, converted a four-point play and then made one of two free throws for a 43-29 lead. Soon the margin was 50-31, and then 61-36. Brown scored 15 points in the second half and finished 5 for 7 from 3-point range. Miami's bench outscored the Eagles' 28-6. The Hurricanes never trailed, racing to leads of 8-2 and 25-10. The margin was 33-23 at halftime.
