Hoops: Canes hold on for win

The Hurricanes once again played good defense and turned in what can be considered their most impressive win of the season by knocking off an Arizona State team that had lost just once coming into this game.

In what turned out to be Miami's final game of the Wooden Legacy in California, the Hurricanes played some of its best basketball of the season.

Arizona State came into the game with a 7-1 record but it had a hard time generating much offense against a very tough Miami defense that limited the Sun Devils to 39-percent shooting.

Davon Reed scored 19 points, a season high for him, to lead the Hurricanes offensively. Garrius Adams grabbed nine rebounds, and pitched in nine points on offense. He also had two steals, and was arguably Miami's Defensive MVP in this game.

ASU was led by Jordan Bachynski, who scored 20 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. That was actually probably the best individual performance against the Hurricanes so far this season. It wasn't enough, however.

Reed, Adams, Rion Brown, Donnavan Kirk, and James Kelly were the five starters for the Hurricanes for the second straight game.

The Hurricanes (5-3) are now set to travel to Lincoln, Neb. on Wednesday to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
