Miami 65, Stetson 56

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Guillermo Diaz scored 18 points and
Robert Hite added 17, helping Miami pull away in the second half
for a 65-56 win over winless Stetson on Tuesday night and extend
the Hatters' losing streak to 15 games dating back to last season.

The Hatters (0-10) led 34-33 on Anthony Register's layup with
13:55 remaining, before the Hurricanes (7-5) went on a 9-1 run over
the next three minutes. Diaz's 3-pointer capped that spurt, and
Miami kept the lead the rest of the way.

Anthony King had 13 points and 10 rebounds for Miami, which
plays No. 10 Louisville in the Orange Bowl Basketball Classic on
Saturday.

Register had 13 points for Stetson, which has lost four of its
games by nine points or less -- but had dropped its last three
outings by a combined 63 points. E.J. Gordon and Chief
Kickingstallionsims each added 11 for the Hatters.
