    DULUTH, Ga. -- Shenise Johnson scored 24 points, Morgan Stroman added 18 with 10 rebounds and No. 13 Miami beat Georgia Tech 77-65 on Monday night.

    The Hurricanes (13-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won four of five and improved to 3-3 on the road this season.

    Sasha Goodlett finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds for Georgia Tech (11-5, 1-2).

    The Yellow Jackets, who were coming off a three-point loss at No. 5 Maryland last week, have dropped two straight following a six-game winning streak.

    Chelsea Regins' three-point play brought Georgia Tech within four at 54-50, but the Yellow Jackets went 4:29 without a field goal, and Miami took the game's biggest lead at 15 on Shanel Williams' layup at the 7:28 mark.

    After Goodlett's two-footer made it 66-60 with 4:55 remaining, Georgia Tech never got any closer.

    Miami improved to 12-1 when leading at halftime.
