CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Dwayne Collins scored 24 points as Miami closed its non-conference schedule with an 85-69 victory over Florida Atlantic on Monday night.
Collins scored 18 points in the second half, including 12 straight during a stretch that ended with a short jumper, to give Miami (11-3) a 75-60 lead with 4:37 left. He hit a career-high 12 free throws on 16 attempts -- which ties for the fifth-most attempts in program history -- to lead the Hurricanes to their fourth-straight double-digit win.
Jack McClinton finished with 20 points -- including four three-pointers, and moved past Mike Wittman for 14th place on Miami's career scoring list with 1,327 points. It was his sixth 20-point game of the season for the ACC's all-time three-point field goal percentage leader, including a perfect 6-of-6 performance from the charity stripe.
