TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Uche Echefu and Solomon Alabi scored 12 points each as Florida State used its superior size advantage to turn back Western Illinois 67-55 on Monday.
Chris Singleton added 10 points as the Seminoles (5-0) outscored the Leathernecks 26-10 in the paint and held a 34-23 rebounding advantage.
CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) - After a hard-fought loss in the semifinals, Miami (No. 21 ESPN/USA Today, No. 22 AP) responded with a dominating victory over San Diego.
Brian Asbury scored 14 points to lead four Miami players in double figures in the 80-45 win Monday night.
LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - Senior Danny Green scored a career-high 26 points and No. 1 North Carolina, again playing without Tyler Hansbrough, beat Chaminade 115-70 on Monday night in the opening round of the EA Sports Maui Invitational.
Hansbrough missed three weeks of practice and the first two games of the season with a stress reaction in his right shin, and the reigning player of the year wasn't expected to play all three games in the three-day tournament. He played 25 minutes and had 13 points Friday against UC Santa Barbara, but didn't see any time against the Division II host school.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Jeff Teague scored 14 points and No. 19 Wake Forest shook off a sloppy first half to beat Winston-Salem State 62-31 on Monday night.
The Demon Deacons (3-0) shot 68 percent in the second half, held the Rams (0-3) to one field goal during a 15 1/2-minute stretch and forced them into a Joel Coliseum-record scoring low in completing a three-game sweep of instate mid-majors.
