CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Rion Brown scored 19 points to lead Miami to a 80-66 victory over Maryland on Wednesday night. 

Brown and Malcolm Grant hit consecutive 3-pointers late in the second half as the Hurricanes regained a double-digit lead they enjoyed for most of the first half and the opening minutes of the second. 

Grant, who finished with 16 points, made a 3-pointer to put Miami (18-12, 6-9 Atlantic Coast Conference) up 69-56 with 6:06 remaining. 

The Hurricanes later scored six unanswered points during a 1:22 span to seal it. Durand Scott’s basket gave Miami a 75-58 lead with 4:06 to play. 

Scott scored 15 points and Reggie Johnson finished with 12 points and 15 rebounds for Miami. 

The Terrapins (18-12, 7-8) rallied from a 47-30 deficit early in the second half with a 15-3 spurt. Adrian Bowie and Terrell Stoglin each hit 3s during the run. 

Stoglin led Maryland with 20 points.
