DELAND, Fla. -- Senior forward Dwayne Collins scored 20 points and matched his season-high with 15 rebounds to lead Miami to a 69-49 victory over Stetson on Wednesday night.
The 6-foot-8, 241-pound Collins overpowered an undersized Stetson frontcourt while playing just 24 minutes. He was 8-for-10 from the floor. Reserve guard Adrian Thomas added 11 points and four assists for the Hurricanes (10-1).
Miami never trailed. A 3-pointer by Brandon Williams got Stetson within four points at 20-16 with 8:09 left in the first half. Collins then scored eight of Miami's next 16 points to build a 36-25 halftime lead.
A 12-2 Miami run with five different players scoring made it a 54-34 lead with 9 minutes remaining.

Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
