CHAPEL HILL, NC (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.

FAIRFAX, VA (AP) -- Patrick Holloway scored 10 of his game-high 15 points in the first half and George Mason got key contributions from several bench players as it pulled away in the second half for a 71-46 win over Old Dominion on Thursday night.

Paris Bennett and Vertrail Vaughns combined to score all the Patriots' points during a 15-4 run midway through the second half that gave George Mason (9-6, 2-1 Colonial Athletic Association) a 49-30 advantage over its in-state rivals.

The win snapped a two-game home losing streak for the Patriots, who had previously won 14 straight at home. The loss was the 13th in 14 games for the Monarchs (2-14, 0-4).

The Patriots' substitutes combined for 58 points on a night when leading-scorer Sherrod Wright had just one point and missed all five of his field goal attempts. George Mason's five starters totaled 13 points on 5-of-17 shooting.

CLEVELAND, OH (AP) -- A person familiar with the decision says the Cleveland Browns have hired Carolina offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski as their new coach.

Chudzinski will become the Browns' sixth full-time coach since 1999, said the person who spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday night on the condition of anonymity because the team has not yet announced the hiring. The 44-year-old Chudzinski has spent the past two seasons with the Panthers. He has had two previous stints with the Browns as an assistant coach.

Chudzinski, who grew up in Ohio and rooted for the Browns as a kid, interviewed with the team on Wednesday. He has spent the past two years working with quarterback Cam Newton.

The Browns have been searching for a coach since firing Pat Shurmur on Dec. 31 after a 5-11 season.

UNDATED (AP) -- The players' association has begun electronic voting on whether to approve the new collective bargaining agreement. The balloting will continue until Saturday at 8 a.m.

The league's board of governors unanimously approved the deal that was tentatively agreed to on Sunday, the 113th day of the NHL lockout..

If a majority of the 700 players eligible to vote approve the deal, training camp will start Sunday with the start of a 48-game schedule set for Jan. 19.

You did not mention the

Seahawks/James Madison Game. James Madison handed the Hawks their behinds; what miserable performance. And again turnovers caused the loss.

Buzz -- get the team turned around or concede all players are focused on academics which is not a bad thing. But Coach, if you're aspiring to replace Coach Williams when he retires, this record will not do it for you.

I seriously doubt...

Buzz's name is anywhere on UNC's "radar" to replace Roy when he retires. Buzz may be considered when the coach at CFCC retires. :)

Taxpayer

read my comments. Nowhere do I indicate Buzz Peterson is on the UNC radar to replace Coach Williams; unless we look in the shadows of his own mind.
