Miami hit a school record-tying 15 3-pointers and the eighth-ranked Hurricanes extended their winning streak to 11 games by beating North Carolina 87-61 on Saturday.

Sophomore Shane Larkin had 18 points and a career-high nine assists for the Atlantic Coast Conference leaders, who built margins of 9-0 and 44-27 en route to another rout. They improved to 11-0 at home, where each of the past four wins have been by at least 22 points.

Miami (19-3, 10-0 ACC) set a school record for ACC victories in a season with eight games still to go. North Carolina (16-7, 6-4), which began the season 18-2 against the Hurricanes, lost to them for the second time in four weeks.
