DULUTH, Ga. (AP)

Shenise Johnson scored 24 points, Morgan Stroman added 18 with 10 rebounds and No. 13 Miami beat Georgia Tech 77-65 on Monday night.

The Hurricanes (13-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won four of five and improved to 3-3 on the road this season.

Sasha Goodlett finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds for Georgia Tech (11-5, 1-2). Chelsea Regins had 16 points and 10 boards.

The Yellow Jackets, who were coming off a three-point loss at No. 5 Maryland last week, have dropped two straight following a six-game winning streak.

Regins' three-point play brought Georgia Tech within four at 54-50, but the Yellow Jackets went 4:29 without a field goal, and Miami took the game's biggest lead at 15 on Shanel Williams' layup at the 7:28 mark.

After Goodlett's two-footer made it 66-60 with 4:55 remaining, Georgia Tech never got any closer.

Miami improved to 12-1 when leading at halftime.

Shawnice Wilson's putback gave Miami its biggest first-half lead, 11 points at the 5:33 mark, but the Yellow Jackets went on a 17-6 run that ended with Chelsea Regins' putback and a 36-36 with 1:21 remaining.

Johnson, who had seven assists, one turnover and six steals, extended her streak to 87 consecutive games of scoring in double figures, the best in the nation. Last year's ACC player of the year and a preseason All-American this year by The Associated Press, Johnson used a no-look pass to feed Stroman for a fastbreak layup that made it 58-51 with 10:15 remaining.

The Hurricanes persevered despite going 0 of 10 on 3-point attempts. Johnson and Riquna Williams combined to go 0 of 7.

Miami, which leads the nation in steals with a 16.1 average, outscored Georgia Tech 26-19 in points off turnovers.

Tyaunna Marshall added 12 points, nine rebounds, five turnovers and one assist for the Georgia Tech.
