Brown leads Canes past BC
Rion Brown scored 22 points to lead Miami to a 69-42 win over Boston College on Saturday.
Brown shot 8 of 14 from the field and made four 3-pointers for Miami (14-13, 5-9 Atlantic Coast Conference). Erik Swoope tied a career high with 14 point, while Manu Lecomte and Garrius Adams had 11 and 10 points, respectively.
The Hurricanes opened the second half with a 14-6 spurt and increased a five-point halftime advantage to 13 for their first double-digit lead. Brown's jumper with 14:08 remaining capped the early second half surge and gave Miami a 41-28 lead.
Patrick Heckmann scored 15 points but was held to two points in the second half for Boston College (7-20, 3-11).
The Eagles, who defeated No. 1 Syracuse on Wednesday, have lost six of their last seven.
