    MALIBU, Calif. -- James Dews scored 21 points and sank five 3-pointers to lead Miami to its sixth straight win, an 86-63 victory over Pepperdine on Sunday.

    The Hurricanes (14-1) never trailed and used a double-digit scoring run in both halves to pull away in their first visit to Pepperdine (4-12) since December 1969.

    Adrian Thomas, who scored 15 points on a career-high five 3-pointers off the bench, began and ended a 10-0 run with 3-pointers to help Miami to a 21-10 lead with 12 minutes to go in the first half. The Hurricanes led 45-36 at halftime.

    Dews ignited a 12-0 run in the second half with a 3-pointer that pushed Miami's lead to 68-46 with less than 11 minutes to play.

    Pepperdine's Keion Bell scored a game-high 22 points.

    Miami, which has won 21 consecutive nonconference regular-season games, made 13 3-pointers and shot 53 percent from the field overall.
