FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) Chris Lykes scored 18 points and Miami embraced the morning tipoff in a dominant 85-49 win over La Salle in the first round of the Wooden Legacy on Thursday.

The Hurricanes (4-0), who came in as the highest-scoring team in the tournament, continued to put up big numbers and got to the lane with ease. Five players scored in double figures for Miami.

It was a dunk-fest early on as guard Anthony Lawrence dunked for the game's first basket inside two minutes after tipoff. He later had a breakaway dunk, and his teammates were in on the slam-dunk party all game as well.

Jared Kimbrough scored 10 points for La Salle (0-5).

Besides Miami and LaSalle, the bracketed tournament at Titan Gym on the campus of Cal State Fullerton includes Northwestern, Fresno State, Seton Hall, Grand Canyon, Hawaii and Utah, with games Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
