CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Rion Brown scored 15 points as Miami snapped a three-game losing streak and defeated Norfolk State 64-49 on Saturday.

The Hurricanes never trailed after a late first-half run that resulted in a 10-point lead at halftime.

Manu Lecomte scored 13 points and Garrius Adams finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Hurricanes (11-10). The win was Miami's first since a 56-42 Atlantic Coast Conference victory at Georgia Tech on Jan. 18.

3-pointers from Lecomte and Adams helped Miami on a 12-0 surge to start the second half that stretched its lead to 43-21. Tonye Jeriki's jumper capped the run with 14:19 remaining.

Riley Maye's jumper with 14:02 remaining ended a field-goal-scoring drought of 11:05 for the Spartans. Norfolk State missed 13 consecutive shots before Maye's conversion.

Pendarvis Williams scored 21 points and Brandon Goode finished with 14 for the Spartans (12-10).
