Recap


Miami 76, La Salle 59:
Sophomore guard Shane Larkin scored 18 points and grabbed five rebounds as the host Hurricanes rallied from a 11-point first half deficit to snap a two-game losing streak.

Larkin, the son of baseball Hall of Famer Barry Larkin, connected on 3-of-6 3-pointers, including back-to-back treys to highlight a 16-2 run midway through the second half when Miami (9-3) broke away from a 45-45 tie and took control.

Guard Tyrone Garland came off the bench to score a team-high 20 points and senior guard Ramon Galloway added 12 points and eight rebounds for La Salle (9-3), which had a three-game winning streak snapped.

Forward Kenny Kadji added 14 points, 11 rebounds, four steals and three blocks for Miami while guards Durand Scott (18) and Trey McKinney Jones (14) also scored in double figures.

Miami, which opens Atlantic Coast Conference play on Saturday at Georgia Tech, ended the game with a 31-14 run and held the Explorers to 37.1 percent shooting from the field.
