GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Durand Scott scored 11 of his 17 points in the final six minutes and 12th-seeded Miami continued a stunning run in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament with a 70-65 victory over Virginia Tech on Friday.

DeQuan Jones added 14 points for the Hurricanes (20-12), who have knocked out a pair of higher seeds to advance to Saturday's semifinals against top-seed and No. 4 Duke at 1:30 p.m.

Jeff Allen scored 18 points for fourth-seeded Virginia Tech, which couldn't overcome a miserable performance by ACC leading scorer Malcolm Delaney. He was held to seven points on 3 of 15 shooting, including 0 of 8 from 3-point range.

Delaney missed two shots on the same possession with under a minute left and Virginia Tech (23-8) trailing by one. Scott hit two free throws at the other end, and Terrell Bell missed a tying 3-point attempt to end the Hokies' hopes.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The 13th-ranked University of Miami baseball team lost its Atlantic Coast Conference opener to Boston College Friday night, 3-0, at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field. Despite six strong innings from starter Chris Hernandez, the Hurricanes were unable to get BC starter Pat Dean, who struck out nine in eight innings of work to earn the win.

Miami (8-4, 0-1 ACC) out-hit Boston College (6-6, 1-0 ACC), 7-to-6, but committed three errors and missed several opportunities to drive in runners throughout the contest.

Hernandez (1-2) turned in yet another solid outing in a losing effort, allowing just one earned run on five hits while walking two and striking out five in his fourth start of the year. E.J. Encinosa came on in the seventh to get UM out of a jam, retiring three straight with runners on first and second with no outs. Encinosa tossed 2 1/3 scoreless, allowing just one hit before Sam Robinson came on in the eighth to record a pair of outs.

Dean (3-0) allowed six hits and walked one, but was able to keep UM off the board until handing it over the Matt Brazis, who tossed a scoreless ninth to earn his second save of the season.

Wow, Im lost for words. Even if they lose tomorrow, gotta show the Canes lots of love for not just going through the motions and heading home after Round 1. I guess there must be a lil Faith in Haith left..lol

Shoulda beat Duke last time. Can beat em. Not with as many turnovers as they had against VT tho.

SlingBlade

we will have a chance against dookie if we dominate the rebounding like we did against VT and limit our turnovers....i just dont see it happening though...this team always struggles against teams that can shoot the three....mainly because we are out of position to get the long rebound on the backside and that gives the team alot of second chance points...and one thing you dont want to give a shooter is an opportunity to get hot....

Go Canes, beat Duke!

And now for a brief football update, check out this article on LA:

Latwan Anderson Says: “I Am the Best Until Proven Otherwise”

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

Ohio Glenville High School safety Latwan Anderson is good and he’s not afraid to let you know. The speedster from Ted Ginn’s High School has gone on a mission this summer to prove the words in the headline of this story.

Some people go on fact finding missions, some people go on award tours, Anderson has been on a “prove it to you” expedition. The play making safety is brash and even cocky as some would describe but you have to say that this summer he has backed it up. The cherry on Anderson’s sundae came last week at the ESPN Gridiron Kings event at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. With a motherlode of top athletes and recruits competing at the event, Anderson shined from his safety position. Anderson used his track speed and instincts to nab 6 Int’s during the tournament (one for a 98 yard touchdown) and walked away with defensive MVP honors. If you didn’t know him when the summer began, you know who he is now.

“Not to sound cocky but if I’m not the best safety in the country, I can’t say who is, seriously” Anderson told me upon returning from the Gridiron Kings event.

After his performances, it’s not hard to see how he would not feel that way and it’s also hard to argue with him. Highly recruited safeties like Jonathan Dowling and Matt Elam were also at the Gridiron Kings event and neither put on the display that Anderson did.

“After watching the other safeties who are said to be better than me, I’ve come up with the fact that they are really just a little above average,” said Anderson.

“Take it how you want it, I am the best until proven wrong. I don’t care what these rankings say,” Anderson continued.

The Rankings are catching on to what Anderson is saying. In March, Rivals.com came out with their Top 100 rankings. Anderson at the time was rated the 66th prospect overall in the country. Fast forward to July and Anderson is sitting at #35. He’s also rated the #2 safety prospect in the country. Remarkably, Scout.com does not have Anderson ranked in the Top 100 and have somehow listed him as the 25th best safety in the country. Where have they been this summer?

Despite his new found climb up the ranks, Anderson’s list of top schools remains the same: West Virginia, Michigan, Georgia, North Carolina and Miami, FL. Anderson did camp at Michigan St. during the summer so I would not count them out down the road in this process. With Anderson’s recent performances, more schools may attempt to enter into the race but for now, West Virginia is his number one with the four others running the race.

Eventhough he was busy getting busy at the Gridiron Kings event, Anderson was not so blind as to not see who was doing their thing around him. Anderson was very impressed with Proviso West’s (Illinois) wide receiver Kyle Prater.

“He really is 6′5″ probably taller and he is a legit 4.4, 4.5 speed,” said Anderson. “That kid is sick, I can’t lie.”

Despite such a great report on Prater, Anderson says Dr. Phillip High School’s (Orlando) Kenny Shaw was the best receiver.

“Kenny Shaw from Florida, he was the best wide receiver to me by far,” Anderson said.

Anderson also gave Louisiana QB Munchie Legaux a lot of love saying that he had a rocket for an arm with accuracy. Video clips from the event back up Anderson’s summary of Legaux’s skills.

Despite all of the props, Anderson held his own against the wide outs which begged the question whether or not he would play cornerback in college, to which Anderson said this:

“I’m probably going to end up playing it anyway. They always say that I’m 5′10″ or 5′11″ but I’m actually 5′8 3/4″ and I don’t think I am getting any bigger. A lot of coaches have seen me cover and I think I can just take a wide receiver out of a game which I think I can also.”

With Anderson’s 10.9 speed in the 100, 21.73 speed in the 200 and reported 4.29 speed in the 40, he has the tools to get it done. You can make your own judgements on Anderson’s skill and performance this evening when ESPN airs the Gridiron Kings Event on ESPNU at 7 P.M. est. Tuesday.

This Oregon coach Chip Kelly is a major tool. There is no reason I can see to suspend Masoli for the ENTIRE season when he plead guilty to a misdemeanor. He hammered down this punishment in a press conference only hours after Masoli's legal decision was finalized.

This is the same jackhole who suspended LaGarett Blount for the entire season after his punch last year. That was another knee-jerk, PR type suspension.

He's also levied a 1 game suspension on RB LaMichael James who pleaded guilty of misdemeanor harassment and got 10 days in jail.

This man's punishments are consistently inconsistent! The kid who gets actual jail time only has to serve 1 game but a different kid who gets no jail time is gone for the entire season?

This is unexplainable and unexcusable. Someone needs to suspend Kelly for improper handling of the career of his student-athletes.

**Side note: The media is harping on what a tough first year it has been for Kelly. They're noting that even though Oregon won the Pac-10 their season has been marred by off-field incidents. Maybe they're right, but they certainly aren't reporting anything like that for Florida, who has probably had more than twice as many arrest in the last 12 months. To the media, Florida simply had a successful season.

From www.theacc.com:

GREENSBORO, N.C. – A halftime conversation between a coach and a player doesn’t always produce the desired result.
But it paid off for Miami Friday in the ACC Tournament.

In the first half of their quarterfinal game against Virginia Tech, Hurricanes coach Frank Haith felt his freshman point guard, Durand Scott, was playing at less than his best. That was reflected in the stat sheet – two points on 1-for-5 shooting, two rebounds, no assists and two turnovers.

“Coach came to see me at halftime and said I’m not playing my heart out, I’m not getting back on defense, I’m not running,” Scott said, “and I took that personally. I wanted to get out there in the second half and give it my all.”

His ‘all’ looked like this: 15 points on 5-for-7 shooting and 5-for-5 free throws, four more rebounds and two assists, helping to push the 12th-seeded Hurricanes to a 70-65 quarterfinal upset of the fourth-seeded Hokies. It came on the heels of Thursday’s 83-62 win over No. 5 seed Wake Forest.

Scott did his best work Friday in the final three minutes. First came a tumbling layup and additional free throw that put the ‘Canes up 62-61. Next, a tough jumper to tie the game at 64. Then two more free throws to nudge Miami back in front 66-65. And finally two free throws with 17 seconds left to seal the outcome.

Haith said that, indeed, he challenged Scott at halftime.

“I expect more out of him,” the coach said. “We need Durand to play at the level he’s capable of playing at and I thought he wasn’t playing at that level.

“In the second half, late in the ball game, I said ‘are you going to take us home?’ It’s hard to put the ball in a freshman’s hands, but I think he’s that capable, I think he’s that kind of player who has the ability to make plays. And he sure did there late in the game.”

It was the kind of performance that young guards aren’t expected to deliver in the ACC Tournament. But it was something Scott envisioned ever since high school.

“Before I even came to college I had a focus,” he said. “I wanted to come in and put a stamp on everything, show everybody who I am. I’m all about hard work, I’m determined to get the job done. Nobody can tell me I can’t do it, I’m too young or whatever because I’ve got the heart.

“When it came down the stretch coach wanted the ball in my hands and believed in me, which I’m happy about, and I just made it happen for him.”

The Hurricanes became the second team in five years to win two games out of the last seed, following Wake Forest in 2006. Although they experienced a difficult regular season (4-12 in the league), suddenly they seem to have gained the chip and the edge that Haith believes they need to play with to be successful.

“Throughout the season we had some ups and downs, injuries and attitude and things like that,” Scott said. “Right now I think we’re one family; we’re not all over the place and that’s the reason we’re successful now.”

Scott certainly doesn’t lack for confidence. Asked about his ability to drive to the basket, he offered this: “I can get to the basket anytime I want to. There’s nobody in this league, I believe, who can stop me gong to the basket when I’m determined to do it.”

Meanwhile, at Miami, Coach Randy Shannon has taken a program with one of the raunchiest reputations in America and turned it into the gridiron version of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The Hurricanes have had so few scrapes with the law, the only recent incident anyone can remember is when former Miami quarterback Robert Marve damaged the side mirror on a parked car.

Shannon scrubbed his program with a ruthless set of rules that leaves little wiggle room. A player found with a firearm will be automatically dismissed, for example. So have they built a statue in Shannon's honor for making character a priority? Nope. In fact, if he doesn't win the ACC in the next few years, he'll probably get fired.

I think I remember that Masoli had gotten in other troubles as well.

My only disagreement with your assesment is that we aren't on the inside like Kelly is. I too thought he overreacted with the season long suspenion last year, too much media attention might have forced that. At least the players are being held accountable unlike some players up north...

 DATcane

Check in Monday for more on quarterback Robert Marve, but Hope and offensive coordinator Gary Nord both had some high praise for the Miami transfer. According to the coaches, Marve has matured a lot during the last 10 months. He has healed very well from a torn ACL and should be full-go for the spring. His teammates have seen him take charge in offseason workouts, and running back Ralph Bolden was amazed at how quickly Marve picked up the offense. That said, the starting job isn't guaranteed. "I expect Caleb [TerBush] to give Robert Marve a run for his money and make it a very interesting battle this spring," Nord said.

Miami didn’t advance to Saturday’s semifinal game against Duke by Scott’s play alone. Even with its best inside player, Dwayne Collins, out with a leg injury, they dominated the boards 46-29, with Reggie Johnson snagging 12 and guard James Dews grabbing nine more.

For Johnson, who is from nearby Winston-Salem, it’s particularly gratifying.

“Before we came here we regrouped and told each other ‘the season’s over with, let’s come here and start over and just have fun,’” he said. “And we’re having fun right now. I’m in North Carolina, so I love this.”

While few people expected Miami to get this far, perhaps even fewer believe they can beat Duke. But post player Julian Gamble said the team has bought into something Haith told them.

“The way coach put it was as long as we’ve got a game left on our schedule we have an opportunity to make an impact for the rest of our season,” Gamble said. “Obviously by being the 12th-place team, the only way you can make it (to the NCAA Tournament) is to win the championship. As long as we have a next game on our schedule we have an opportunity to win a championship.”

If the Hurricanes are going to pull that off, Scott will likely be the catalyst. His play against Virginia Tech left his teammates searching for words.

“Aw man, oh man,” Johnson said. “All right, now. He played great. For a freshman to come in and do that, wow. Durand Scott, I’m proud of the young man.”

SOUP

The only teams (4) left in the ACC tourney are #1 Duke, #7 GT, #11 NCST and #12 UM.

If we beat Duke today. OH MY!

That would be cool to see a #11 vs. #12 in the championship game.

If we don't win the ACC in the next few years (2012) you don't think Shannon will get fired? Randy has said himself that Miami is all about championships (and he's not talking ACC championships).

You might be right because the priorities of Shalala are all about good citizens, good grades etc... but speaking as part of the fan base I'll be calling for his head if we don't even have an ACC ring after 2012. (And I do understand how difficult it is to get a big name head caoch to The U.) JMO Aquamaneaux...lol.

From a Wake Forest blog:

Miami Destroys Wake Forest–Final

Reggie Johnson–frontcourt BEAST. He scored 22 points to lead the Canes in scoring.

It cannot be overstated how Miami dominated the Deacs’ huge frontcourt–makes absolutely no sense. Canes were +5 in rebounding and Johnson was a force in the paint along with Julian Gamble and his 13 rebounds/3 blocks.

Miami guard Dequan Jones showed up with his 14 points to get the Canes started on the blowout.

I know what your saying but the goal at Miami is National Championships. If we don't win even an ACC Ring with Shannon at the helm for 6 years then there will be talk to replace him even if all our starters get whiplashed in an accident on the way to EVERY game for a couple of years. After a while there are no more excuses or reasons... it just needs to get done.

Just like if ten or twenty years from now we still have a Choir boy rap sheet AND are winning championships they should build a monument to The Randy.

Just don't think it's outrageous to say that pressure won't be on his job if we arent winning championships.

Maybe college football fans are just so jaded about idiotic players getting in trouble and the coach/university just slapping them on the wrist, that something like Chip Kelly did seems way too harsh ...

When in all actuality, it's not too harsh at all

I agree with Sarasota and UMike

The idiot was already arrested back in 2005 for robberies and he admitted to them. Guess he really learned his lesson, b/c he went from robbing people at the mall to walking into a college frat house and lifting a couple of Mac books, a guitar and a projector - that is what was reported stolen

Why didn't he just spray paint the Mac books black and then write his name on the top of them with white marker, like Cameron Newton did up at UiF? Then he could've said they were his, right? Ha

Kelly did what he did to Blount mainly b/c of it being caught and shown on national television. Do you remember how many times it was shown during the game, when they had to end the game? And then how many times it was shown on SportsCenter, following the game? If he didn't do something, he would've been absolutely BLASTED by every media outlet out there. He was in a no-win situation, so he took the disciplinarian route. Punching a kid on television like that isn't as bad as walking into someone's house and stealing all the crap they did

So Masoli admitted to doing it? wow.

It's like in Chris Rock's standup when he was talking about people wanting credit for stuff they're supposed to do - they'll brag about stuff that a normal person just does


(Chris Rock stand-up, edited but verbatim)

"Mannn, I take care of my kids" - you're supposed to, you dumb motherf'er!

"I ain't never been to jail" - what, you want a cookie?

You're not supposed to go to jail, you low expectation havin' motherf'er!


Rock is funny, but also tells the truth, ha

I'm just kind of surprised the frat guys actually reported what happened, esp. considering that's the starting QB of their team. So, I can imagine a bunch of idiots sending them death threats or vandalizing the outside of their house or cars or whatever

People are messed up, have their damn priorities twisted

ACC Tournament Quarterfinals

Miami Notes
􀂃 With today’s win over Virginia Tech, Miami advances to the ACC Tournament semifinals for the first time in school history. It is the first time Miami has advanced to a conference tournament semifinal round since 2001-02 when the Hurricanes knocked off Georgetown, 84-76, in overtime to move on to the BIG EAST Conference semifinals.
􀂃 With the victory, Miami posts its second 20-win season in the last three years.
􀂃 Today marks just the second victory for a #12 seed against a #4 seed in the ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament.
􀂃 The Hurricanes out-rebounded the Hokies, 46-29, and earned a 24-12 advantage in bench scoring. Miami has built the advantage on the boards in 20 games this season, winning 16 of those contests.
􀂃 With a team-high 17 points, freshman Durand Scott scored in double figures for the 15th time this season, including in seven of the last eight games. He scored nine points in the final 2:42 – including hitting all four free throw attempts during that span – to help secure the win for the Hurricanes.
􀂃 Malcolm Grant (4-4) and Durand Scott (5-5) each finished perfect from the foul line on the day – combining to knock down the game’s final six free throws to ice the victory for the 12th-seeded Hurricanes. In addition, the Miami defense limited the Hokies to just two made field goals over the final 7:35 of the game and held the ACC’s leading scorer Malcolm Delaney (20.5 ppg) to just seven points on 3-15 shooting, including an 0-8 performance from long range.
􀂃 Despite missing Dwayne Collins in the post, Miami earned a 30-24 advantage in points in the paint against the Hokies. Miami has outscored all three opponents in points in the paint without Collins in the lineup.
􀂃 Senior James Dews – who grabbed a career-high nine boards versus the Hokies – suited up in his 129th career game today, which ranks second all-time in career appearances by a Hurricane. With an appearance in Saturday’s semifinal, he can tie the school record of 130 career games played set by former teammate Brian Asbury last season.
􀂃 Senior forward Adrian Thomas – who leads the ACC in three-point field goal percentage – has knocked down a three-pointer in 10 consecutive games – the third-longest active streak in the ACC. He finished 2-of-4 on the afternoon from long range.
􀂃 For the first time in his career, sophomore DeQuan Jones posted back-to-back double-figure scoring games, finishing with 14 points on a career-high tying six field goals versus the Hokies to follow up a 14-point performance over Wake Forest. In addition, he was Miami’s leading scorer in the first half for the second-straight game, turning in 11 points in the first stanza.
􀂃 Reggie Johnson, who went 3-for-4 from the charity stripe, converted 14 straight free throws before missing one in the second half. Overall, he has connected on 15 of his last 17 free throws, and 60 of his last 72 and is shooting 82.8 percent from the line this season versus conference opponents – best among the ACC’s big men.
􀂃 Reggie Johnson finished the game with a career-high 12 rebounds – grabbing five from the offensive glass. He also turned in three blocks for his third game of the year with three-plus blocked

So, did the A.C.C. zebra's give Miami the ROYAL SCREW JOB up the U-KNOW-WHAT hole. lol

IF the A.C.C. officials did, it's the typical royal treament for Coach Super-K's squad.

Heck, that Duke team been getting some help from the " un-biased " officiating crews ever since the diminutive Pitino's Kentucky squad was robbed of a Final Four berth in " 92.

That Elite 8 showdown happened to be the one where MAINSTREAM America's favorite baller Christian Laettner did the STOMP on a prone Wildcat player.

A.C.C. bretheren Maryland was also SCREWED out of a National Championship game showdown against Arizona in 2001, when the N.C.A.A. officials gladly helped Super K's squad into Monday nights seasonal finale for college hoops.

Freak', Gary Williams was so freakin' BEMUSED, as well as helpless at the officiating, that Williams actually TURNED to a hefty NUMBERED congent of ELITE-LEVEL N.C.A.A. suits sitting courtside, and threw up his hands in a desperate plea for help. LMAO Not that would change matters on the hardwood.

Even though I'm not a Cane mens hoop fan, I'll still say a prayer for Miami, and petition the college hoopdom deities, that Haith's Cane squad doesn't get SCREWED by the A.C.C. zebras. LMAO

Agreed Masoli got a plea deal...jerk actually committed a felony. He should not be allowed to stay on scholarship, no redshirt season available, get his butt off campus and into a cell. Same for James, beating on a girl. I do not care how good he is, to me he was wrong. Both should never be at the school again.

Also, we need to win as many games as we can, I want an undefeated season, ACC/NC every year for the next 10 years...but that is me. I do not expect it. We need to start with ACC title, then keep going. I think RS has done a good job. We may not get it this year, but maybe 2011. I am still concerned with the OL...still the weak link. with them weak, it leaves JH as a big target for big hits. JMO

According to a radio report I heard, Masoli apparently told Kelly he was innocent prior to all this becoming public knowledge. Kelly went to bat for him, only to hear differently a short time later. Bottom line, I think Kelly was embarrassed and made Masoli pay. IMO, the punishment fits the crime when considering this incident along with priors. These kids need to understand how the real world operates. These types of punishments will hopefully make him and other do whats right

if i didnt know any better i would say over the last two games the refs have been giving the canes the benefit of the doubt...these canes are playing tough and not getting called...and dook has 4 players with 2 fouls...if i were haith i would be telling the guards to go hard against scheyer and smith...and get them out of the game...then there would be no one to run the offense for them........game over

SlingBlade

Johnson + Jones + Scott + Grant = SOLID TEAM

dont sleep on garrius adams next year...he will take over dews spot easily....

Daytoncane

35-32 Canes at the half.

Malcolm Grant hits a three coming off a curl at the top of the key. that boy has got some serious range on his jumper.

where's all the Haith haters at now?

and for the talk about McClinton bailing us out in the tourney two years ago, i believe that's exactly what Stephon Curry did for Davidson every game.

how do you think they beat Gonzaga, who has consistent tournament success?

how did they beat Georgetown, which was a 2 seed that year?

one name, Stephon Curry. his teammates certainly helped, but Curry was hitting jumpers from the stands in those games.

be a real sports fan for once.

dook has shot the ball 8 more times then us....direct result of 7 offensive rebounds...

Thats why in the big picture what Randy is setting up down here with our kids is such a beautifull scene. The picture behind his desk of a black man in business atire, and his point that in that picture you can't tell if the gentleman is going to an office or a ballpark. Just because your athletes doesn't mean you are given anything (although we all know there are perks), that you must earn everything you get.

The man in the picture? Jackie Robinson.

where's all the Haith haters at now?

I think they are all at your house?

Sling...if Miami reduces their turnovers and stays physical they can win this game.

Sorry Dayton I am a Canes fan...doesn't get any more real than that lol

novaCANEPHINatic

This is the start of same assult Duke put on to open the half last time they played...for once good timeout Haith

macjones de Albuquerque

youR hUrricanes are going to have to MATCH the INNER FIERY INTENSITY of that Duke team in the opening six minutes of the crucial second-half.

Gurantee this, that Super-K has/is getting into his suburban players faces, and what he's telling them won't be heard in a church. LMAO

Now, IF Haith's Cane squad can weather the BLITKRIEG of that Blue Devil team the opeing six minutes, then ths game will be bery, bery, bery, intersting, and go down to the waning seconds. lol

LOL, U gotta let us know what a "real" sports fan is Daytoncane!

DZ8

Good stuff macjones... U related to Ali G?

UMike

Is it me or is Miami getting no calls in the lane? Geez

Daytoncane

defense is looking ugly.

game is starting to slip away.

SOUP

That was fast! Duke by 14. Game ova?

novaCANEPHINatic

No Umike I see that too(and not cause Miami is losing). It's funny cause someone earlier was just complimenting on how Miami was getting the calls in the first. Oh how things change in a half

Ucane

SORRY everyone...

Canes are getting beat because I'm watching it.Didn't watch Wake game-Canes win.Didn't watch VT game-Canes win.My day off,decide to watch Canes play with undying hope until the 2nd half started.I hate duke and their prep-pee bb team.They are not gods of the hardwood.GO CANES

the"U"

novaCANEPHINatic

Ucane, turn off the TV and accidentally lose the reomote for about 15minutes lol.


Canes down 7, dont give up hope yet.

UMike

nova...I didnt see the first half..but the refs are making Duke look like world class shot blockers lol

novaCANEPHINatic

Umike, Maybe the refs are afraid to call the foul on Singler with those serial killer eyes. You know like when you can see the whites around three sides of his eyes(and not like crazy Gary Busey style, more like someone thats about to do something strange to farm animals crazy). Good player though. Oh well good run Canes

Aquaman

Score please

novaCANEPHINatic

Aqua its over Canes fall by three 77-74

orange 'n green in the vein

ACC officiating is SOOOOOO biased against UM in men's sports it's SEC level embarrassingly obvious.

SlingBlade

this team is gonna blow this duke team out next year....they are gonna be sooooo good..

Daytoncane

looks like our run is over. good job though.

Durand Scott has shown more playmaking ability in this tournament than any other athlete that goes to Miami.

Collins leaving is actually a blessing in disguise. it will allow the offense to flow more freely and be more complex.

Gin & Tonic

GREAT showing by the Canes today. This game came down to the fact that the ACC refs would not let a #1 Duke seed lose to a #12 Miami seed. And the only way you could possibly argue that is if you did not watch the game.

Haith is close. Shannon is closer.

GO CANES!!!!!!

Six

Bad shots to start off the 2nd Half by Miami, while Duke was hitting 3 - getting 6 points immediately out of the gate

If the shots aren't falling or the kids are taking bad looks, the obvious is going to happen .... esp. against Duke


Kentucky is badass. If there was a rule where the kids HAD to stay at least 3 years, that team would be scary

I agree. But the ACC HAD to get #1 seeded Duke through so they can be a top four seed going into the NCAAs.

BIG bidness this college sports thingy dingy.

i don't think we're talking about the same person.

but if you think Collins was a consistent player for us, i guess you're right.

he had a chance to be "the man" for us this year, and he passed at it.
