Miami (Fla.) made easy work of the Quinnipiac Bobcats on Saturday and carried off an 80-52 win. The Hurricanes got double-digit scores from four players: G Kameron McGusty (22), G Dejan Vasiljevic (13), G Chris Lykes (12), and G Harlond Beverly (10).

Meanwhile, in a sloppy game that saw the teams combine for 37 turnovers, the Xavier Musketeers took down MSU 59-56.
