    CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- James Dews had 15 points, Jack McClinton scored 12 and Miami routed crosstown foe Florida International 76-50 on Friday night.

    Eddie Rios added 10 points, and Lance Hurdle had eight points as the Hurricanes improved to 12-1 in their series against Florida International.

    Michael Dominguez had 15 points and six rebounds for the Golden Panthers, who had a few hundred fans make the short drive only to be quieted by the orange-and-green clad Hurricanes home crowd.

    Hobbled by injuries to all five starters, Florida International(4-6) was outmanned and overmatched by Miami. The Hurricanes (6-2) kept the pressure on, wearing down the Golden Panthers with an up-tempo style and holding the Golden Panthers to 30 percent shooting from the floor (16 of 53).

    Rios hit a pair of 3-pointers to cap a 17-2 Miami run in the first half.
