MIAMI (AP) – Kamari Murphy had a career-high 14 points and added 10 rebounds to help Miami overcome 16 turnovers to beat Wofford 74-57 Saturday in the HoopHall Miami Invitational.
Murphy was chosen the game’s most valuable player.
Ja’Quan Newton added a career-high eight assists to go with 15 points for the Hurricanes (6-2). Bruce Brown scored 12 points and Davon Reed added 13 points.
Cameron Jackson came off the bench to score 16 points for Wofford (2-6).
Miami shot 50 percent from the field, including 7 for 15 from 3-point range, and went 19 for 21 from the free throw line.
The Hurricanes raced to leads of 17-4 and 24-6. The margin was 32-15 when Wofford mounted a comeback.
Miami went without a field goal for the first seven minutes of the second half, allowing Wofford to close to within five points. Dejan Vasiljevic and Brown then sank consecutive 3-pointers, and Miami was never again threatened.
