CORAL GABLES (AP) — Davon Reed scored 21 points on 6-of-10 shooting and tied his career high by making 5 of 9 3-pointers to lead Miami to a 76-56 victory over Florida Atlantic on Friday night.

Miami (8-2) took the lead for good after a 12-2 run during a 4:36 stretch midway through the first half. Anthony Lawrence keyed the surge with two 3-pointers. Lawrence’s second 3 with 8:05 remaining capped the spurt and increased the Hurricanes’ lead to 20-12.

Bruce Brown’s layup with 1:03 to go gave Miami its largest advantage of the first half at 39-22.

Brown scored 14 points and finished with eight rebounds. Lawrence finished with 13 points and made all three of his 3-pointers.

Marcus Neely scored 13 points to lead the Owls (3-6) in their first game since a 79-77 victory over Ohio State on Dec. 6.
