Final Score: Miami-Florida 85, NC State 70

Raleigh, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Rion Brown had a game-high 20 points and Tonye Jekiri notched his first career double-double with 14 points and 13 rebounds, as the Miami-Florida Hurricanes earned an 85-70 win over the NC State Wolfpack in Atlantic Coast Conference action at PNC Arena.

Garrius Adams added 16 points, while Erik Swoope and Manu Lecomte scored 15 apiece to help the Hurricanes (15-14, 6-10 ACC) avenge a one-point home loss to NC State earlier this season.

ACC scoring leader T.J. Warren had 20 points and seven boards to pace the Wolfpack (17-12, 7-9), who were coming off a one-point loss to 19th-ranked North Carolina on Wednesday. Kyle Washington and Desmond Lee rounded out the double-figure scorers with 13 and 10 points, respectively.

Both teams shot 50 percent or better from the floor in a first half that featured six ties and six lead changes. Miami took a 37-36 halftime lead into the locker room.

NC State took a 65-64 lead on a steal and dunk by Warren with six and a half minutes to play in regulation, but Miami answered with a 13-0 run to end the threat. The Hurricanes went on to shoot a sizzling 68.2 percent from the floor (15-of-22) and 81.3 percent from the foul line (16-of-19) over the final 20 minutes.

Miami's 85 points marked its highest offensive output since scoring 87 against North Carolina in last year's ACC Championship game. The 'Canes also shot a season-best 58.7 percent from the floor.
