CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - James Kelly scored 18 points to lead a hot-shooting Miami to a 70-54 win over the College of Charleston on Monday night.

The Hurricanes (3-1) led by 15 at halftime, but Charleston came out and hit the first two shots of the second half to cut Miami's lead to 40-29. Kelly then hit a 3-pointer and Tonye Jekiri hit an uncontested layup that started a 15-6 run. By the time Donnavan Kirk hit a runner in the lane, the Hurricanes were up 55-35 with 10 minutes to go.

Charleston (1-3) would cut the lead to nine with three minutes left, but Manu Lecomte hit a driving layup and the Cougars never got closer.

Miami shot 7-of-11 on 3-pointers after coming into the game making just 29 percent of its shots behind the arc. The Hurricanes shot 51 percent (26-of-51) on the night.
