SATURDAY HOOPS

NO. 10 NORTH CAROLINA 103, Presbyterian 64 - Ed Davis had 20 points and 10 rebounds and Deon Thompson added 19 points for the Tar Heels (8-2), who had no trouble beating up on a team picked to finish last in the Big South Conference.

North Carolina shot 54 percent, dominated the boards against the undersized Blue Hose (2-8) and ran out to a 32-5 lead in the first 10 minutes.

VIRGINIA TECH 66, Penn State 64 - Malcolm Delaney scored 11 of his 27 points during a key second-half stretch and Virginia Tech (8-1) benefited from Penn State's (6-4) poor foul shooting in a 66-64 win Saturday night.

MARYLAND 83, Eastern Kentucky 72 - Greivis Vasquez scored 20 points in an unwanted reserve role and Landon Milbourne had 19. Eric Hayes added 16 points for Maryland (6-3). The Terrapins never trailed, but couldn't pull away from the pesky Colonels (7-3) until Hayes hit a 3-pointer to spark a game-ending 11-4 run.

Vasquez began the game on the bench after showing up late for the morning shootaround. The senior guard had started 80 straight games, a streak launched during his freshman season.

MIAMI 91, South Carolina State 54 - James Dews scored 20 points and Miami (9-1) was never threatened after a 14-0 run late in the first half. Dews converted on two of four Hurricanes 3-pointers during the spurt and finished with six behind the arc.

Miami tied a school record with 15 3-pointers, set against Georgetown on March 3, 1993. The Hurricanes made nine 3-pointers in the first half, including four in the opening 6:36 for a 20-8 advantage.

N.C. STATE 75, Georgia Southern 57 - Tracy Smith scored 21 points on 10-of-12 and Dennis Horner had 16 points, nine rebounds and six assists for the Wolfpack (7-1), who shot 64.7 percent and had five players in double figures.

N.C. State broke away from the Eagles (3-7) by scoring nine points on its first four possessions of the second half.
