CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Isaiah Wong scored 22 points and No. 16 Miami beat Boston College 88-72.

The junior guard went 7 for 9 from the field, shaking off a miserable performance in Miami's 76-70 loss at Georgia Tech last week, when Wong had only six points on 1-of-11 shooting.

Jordan Miller added 19 points, Harlond Beverly scored 15 and Norchard Omier had 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Hurricanes (14-2, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Miami shot 12 for 18 from behind the arc and never trailed after a 13-0 run midway through the first half.

DeMarr Langford finished with 20 points and Makai Ashton-Langford added 19 for the Eagles (8-9, 2-4).

Down 15 at halftime, the Eagles outscored Miami 18-9 in the first 5:36 of the second half. Langford's dunk with 14:56 left cut Boston College's deficit to 52-46.

Wong's 3-pointer with 10:08 remaining extended Miami's lead to double figures again at 62-52.

Beverly scored five points and Nijel Pack hit a 3 that keyed Miami's first-half run. Beverly's layup with 7:27 to go before halftime capped the surge and put Miami ahead 25-13.

Boston College got to 32-26 on Ashton-Langford's jumper with 3:11 left before consecutive 3s from Miller, Wooga Poplar and Pack helped the Hurricanes close the half on an 11-2 spurt.

BIG PICTURE

Boston College: The Eagles lost their 10th straight at Miami. They last won on Miami's home floor Jan. 19, 2010.

Miami: It was the Hurricanes' first home game in three weeks. They were scheduled to host Vermont on Dec. 28 but the Catamounts couldn't travel after a snowstorm affected the Northeast in late December, causing the game to be canceled.
