CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Kenny Kadji scored 18 points and Miami pulled away to beat North Carolina 68-59 on Thursday night.

Julian Gamble had 14 points and Durand Scott and Shane Larkin each had 11 for the Hurricanes (11-3, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).

They led for most of the second half, shot 47 percent on 25-of-53 shooting and held the Tar Heels to one field goal during a critical seven-minute span late.

Miami won its third straight, claimed its first 2-0 start to ACC play since joining the conference in 2003-04 and beat North Carolina for just the third time and first since 2006.

James Michael McAdoo finished with 14 points and Reggie Bullock had 11 for North Carolina (10-5, 0-2), which lost its first two league games for the first time since 2008-09 and fell to 18-3 in the series.
