    CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- DeQuan Jones scored a career-high 16 points to pace Miami in a 77-58 victory over Florida Gulf Coast on Wednesday night.

    James Dews added 15 on five 3-pointers and Malcolm Grant also scored in double figures with 14 for the Hurricanes (6-0), who are off to best start since 2007-08, when they were 12-0.

    Miami went on a 12-2 run to start the game, keyed by a pair of 3-pointers by Dews, and took a 39-23 lead into halftime.

    Baskets by Jones and Durand Scott in the opening minute of the second half stretched the lead to 20 points.

    Three-point shooting proved to be the difference as the Hurricanes hit 13 on 36 attempts from behind the arc, compared to the Eagles, who were 1-for-13 from 3-point range.

    Florida Gulf Coast (0-4) was led by Anthony Banks with 15 points.
