ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Miami (Ohio) forward Andy Miele has won the Hobey Baker Memorial Award as the top player in college hockey.

Miele topped the nation in scoring with 71 points -- 24 goals and 47 assists -- in 39 games. His points total was 11 more than any other player and the most in Division I since 2002-03. He had at least one point in 33 games and multiple points in 22. He tied a school record with a 17-game points streak from Jan. 8 to March 19.

After leading the Redhawks to their first Central Collegiate Hockey Association tournament title and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament -- where they were upset by New Hampshire -- Miele signed a free agent entry-level deal with the Phoenix Coyotes last Saturday.

Boston College's Cam Atkinson and North Dakota's Matt Frattin also were finalists.
