Rion Brown scored 22 points, hitting 5-of-7 3-pointers, as eighth-ranked Miami rolled to a 72-50 victory over Boston College [1] on Tuesday night in Coral Gables, Fla.

Kenny Kadji added 16 points and eight rebounds for the Hurricanes (18-3, 9-0 ACC), who never trailed. After BC cut a 10-point halftime deficit to six early in the second half, Kadji sparked a 17-4 run by scoring 10 points (including a four-point play) over his team’s next four possessions.

For BC, Olivier Hanlan scored 16 points, but he was the only Eagle to shoot at least 50 percent (8-for-14). BC finished at 37.0 percent, and just 21.7 percent from 3-point range. Ryan Anderson [2] contributed 14 points and 11 rebounds.

The road gets no easier for the Eagles (10-12, 2-7), as they next host fourth-ranked Duke on Sunday night.
