James Dews and Raymond Hicks each finished with 16 points for the Hurricanes, who are two games shy of the school record for victories to open a season set in 2001-02.
The Hurricanes opened the game on a 17-0 run in the first 5:07 and were never threatened. They shot a season-high 58 percent from the field to remain one of nine unbeaten Division I teams.

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - Derrick Low scored 20 points and Kyle Weaver had 18 to lead Washington State to a victory at Idaho State.

Low was sharp from the perimeter, hitting five 3-pointers. His 16 first-half points helped the Cougars twice build 16-point leads.
Weaver's turn came in the second half, when he scored seven of Washington State's first 13 points. His 3-pointer at the 16:03 mark put the Cougars up 47-23 and the Bengals (2-8) failed to get much closer the rest of the way.
Matt Stucki led the Bengals with 10 points.
