Recap: Miami-Florida vs. Boston College

Coral Gables, FL (Sports Network) - A day after claiming their highest ranking in the AP polls since 1960, the Hurricanes looked worthy of the top 10 nomination.

Kenny Kadji tallied 16 points with eight rebounds and No. 8 Miami-Florida stayed undefeated in conference play by downing Boston College, 72-50, at BankUnited Center on Tuesday.

Rion Brown knocked down five 3-pointers en route to 22 points off the bench for the Hurricanes (18-3, 9-0 ACC), who shot 11-for-22 from long distance as a team and played smothering defense in registering their 10th straight win.

Durand Scott and Shane Larkin added 11 and 10 points, respectively, in the victory.

Boston College (10-12, 2-7) was held to 37 percent shooting -- including a miserable 5-for-23 mark from three-point range -- in suffering its sixth defeat in seven games. Ryan Anderson finished with 14 points and 11 boards in the setback.

Using their height advantage, the Hurricanes exploited Boston College early by dominating from in close, as they scored 18 of their first 25 points from inside the painted area to build a 15-point lead 13 minutes into the first half.

The Eagles were able to reduce their deficit to six early in the second half following back-to-back scores from Anderson and Olivier Hanlan. However, the Hurricanes became unconscious from long distance soon after and Boston College never recovered.

Kadji quickly caught fire in scoring 10 straight points to push the Canes' edge up to 43-29. He hit consecutive triples, with his second turning into a four-point play after drawing a foul on his make.

Miami-Florida ran away with it from there as its lead soon ballooned up to 26 points at 64-38 following a 19-5 surge, which featured a pair of 3-pointers each from Scott and Brown.

Johnson headlines FCS players of the week

In 2013, the Montana State Bobcats made a bit of an offensive switch, going from a pass-heavy system to a more run- integrated style of play. The reason wasn't because the team was unstable at quarterback, but rather due to the fact the Bobcats were loaded at the running back position.
