The Canes basketball team is going to need a load of scoring help from guards and forwards in order to have a better season next year. Their offense is pathetic.

They don't need guys that sit behind the 3 pt line either, they need slashers and finishers!

They have that in Scott, Grant, Jones and Johnson. U just wait until NEXT YEAR!

SOUP

Freshman Durand Scott had 21 points for the Hurricanes, who put up plenty of fight but couldn't follow their upsets of Wake Forest and Virginia Tech with a much bigger one. In the ACC semifinals for the first time in its history, Miami used a 17-2 run to erase a 12-point deficit and take the halftime lead on Malcolm Grant's long 3-pointer with 5 seconds left.

But after Singler's quick second-half flurry, Scheyer - who had just three points on 1-for-5 shooting to that point - knocked down a 3-pointer from the right corner to start the game-changing 15-0 run that finally gave Duke a 58-42 lead with 11:52 left. That lead held up, though pesky Miami proved difficult to put away.

"I thought in the first half, we played just about as well as we could play after we were able to absorb their pressure," Miami coach Frank Haith said. "That one stretch there, the game got away from us a little bit, and that was the difference in the game."

The Hurricanes got within five points five separate times in the last 90 seconds only to see the Blue Devils respond with either a basket or free throws. DeQuan Jones hit a desperation 3-pointer on Miami's last possession with 2.4 seconds left, but the Hurricanes didn't try to foul and the clock expired.

"We all came together and fought back, and we tried to bring it as close as possible," Scott said. "But it just didn't work out our way."

I need an explanation...

Why foul countless times in the last minute to bring to bring it close, and then not foul at 2.4 seconds when you're finally within 3 points...

WTF?!??

86 - no problem

Canes win, 7-1

Jason Santana did his job: 6 IP, 5 Hits, 1 Earned Run, 8 Ks, 2 Walks, 24 Batters faced

Good to see Sam Robinson, Eric Whaley and David Gutierrez get some time on the mound as well and only give up 1 hit between all of them, facing 10 batters

Frankie Ratcliff and Michael Broad had good nights at the plate, both going 2 for 3 with 2 RBI a piece and 2 Runs a piece. Broad went yard as well. Combined 4 for 6, 4 Runs and 4 RBI. Those are the Canes #7 and #8 hitters

One thing you always love to see - an error free night for the Canes

The boys still have some work to do though

Esteban

just saw the somewhat heated talk on Dwayne Collins from the last blog. I just gotta say how was Johnson scoring? It wasn't all off plays that were run for him. When guys penetrated he put himself in position to get the ball passed to him easily and if he didn't get the pass he went hard after the offensive rebound. big guys just gotta make it happen at times. Collins is in very good shape so figure he can go all out throughout the game and be okay - johnson still got a ways to go in his conditioning/weight so would expect he couldn't go harder than Collins but he was. Plus Collins has a huge wingspan and got very good hops yet doesn't block many shots. It's effort. Gotta want it enough that you go out there aggressive. julian gamble was being aggressiv`e too. there is a reason the team was getting BeTTEr inside play with johnson n gamble over collins n mcgowan.big guys who float vs bigs who go after it.

F- DeQuan Jones, Miami (14 points per game); only 1 double digit game in the entire rest of the season!

Somehow, this five-star, top 20 talent has done almost nothing in his two years in Frank Haith’s Hurricane program. Nothing until this tournament, that is. After only 1 double digit scoring performance all season (against Florida Gulf Coast), Jones has dunked, floated and flied his way to consecutive 14 point scoring efforts against Weak Forest and Virginia Tech. There are brighter skies ahead for Miami with Jones and Scott leading the way in Coral Gables.

Sen. Orrin Hatch continues to hound the Bowl Championship Series.

Earlier this week, the Utah Republican and Max Baucus, a Montana Democrat, sent a letter full of questions to BCS executive director Bill Hancock. The letter asks for details about how the BCS grants automatic bowl bids, how money will be divided under a new TV deal and the legal status of the organization.

In response, HancockHacock told the Associated Press, "I'm looking forward to taking a longer look at the letter. I sure do think that Congress has more important things to do, with all the issues facing our country. The BCS is fair. Access is fair. Revenue is distributed fairly. And frankly, we welcome the opportunity to tell our story every chance we get."

Hatch spearheaded several Congressional hearings last summer looking into the BCS and whether it violates anti-trust laws. He also has urged President Obama to investigate the manner.

In the letter, he and Baucus said more questions were raised about the BCS because Boise State and TCU were left out of the national championship game despite finishing the regular season undefeated. Instead, they played each other in the Fiesta Bowl.

SOUP

Hall of Fame

Ohio State's Eddie George and Georgia's Matt Stinchcomb are among the first-year nominees for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame.

The National Football Foundation released the list of 77 players and coaches Thursday. The ballot was mailed this week to the more than 12,000 NFF members and current Hall of Famers. Their votes will be tabulated and submitted to the NFF's Honors Court, which then chooses the class.

The Hall of Fame Class will be announced May 27 live on ESPNEWS.

Deion Sanders and Russell Maryland are back on the list, along with Eric Dickerson and Desmond Howard, among others.

Aquaman

There isn't a day that goes by that I don't say, "Man, TCU, Boise State, and Utah are really getting screwed by the BCS."

It's such a travesty that these programs have to beat up on fluffer teams, only to be healthy and prepared for the one difficult game they play a year.

Sucks to be them, and cash those BCS checks.

SOUP

From the WTF category:

An agreement that gives Notre Dame 1/66 of all Bowl Championship Series net revenues, means the Fighting Irish have received $4 million in payments from the BCS over the last three years, despite going 15-21 in the regular season and not qualifying for a single New Year’s Day or later bowl game.

From www.hurricanesports.com:

Senior right-hander Jason Santana allowed just one run while striking out a career-high eight in six innings of work as the 13th-ranked University of Miami baseball team evened its series with Boston College with a 7-1 victory Saturday night at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.

Santana (1-1), making his second straight Saturday start, allowed just the one early run and settled in, allowing five hits and two walks on the night to earn his first victory of the 2010 campaign.

The Hurricanes' offense - held scoreless for the first time this season Friday night - finally got on the board in the second with a pair of runs. Three innings later, the `Canes scored four in the fifth and eventually added a late run to secure the win.

Michael Broad and Frankie Ratcliff both finished 2-for-3 with two RBI and two runs scored. Broad, who put Miami ahead for the first time in the series with a two-run double in the second, also smacked his first career homer with a solo shot in the eighth.

Miami relievers Sam Robinson, Eric Whaley and David Gutierrez each tossed a scoreless inning in relief of Santana.

Old Skool - you give me $20 mil a movie to play a scrawny little wizard with glasses that has a ginger whiner as a side kick and an annoying little know-it-all chick as the other side kick ..... and then possibly slip into movie oblivion by making some very bad B movies that even USA Network won't show on a slow Sunday afternoon ...... where do I sign up?

I'd do cameos on sit-coms or voice overs of commercials or go be "artistic" and do some really bad plays on broadway

Then I'd go pull up my account that has $100 Million in it and smile

I'd also make sure not to hang out with some bleached skin alien who lives in Neverland Ranch and has alarms on every door with motion detectors that go off when one of the kids that I invite for a "sleep over" tries to escape

Don't get me wrong, I like some of the music of that bleached skin alien, have it on my MP3 ... but some of the things he pulled were nowhere close to normal

ABC couldn't have picked any worse music for their basketball games yesterday and today

Good one but you do need a coach at the Mike. Just ask New Orleans how many adjustments Vilma made in the Super Bowl as he duelled with Manning. The DC had nothing to do with that.

But the door is open for someone like Nelson to come in an takeover since Kylan and Shayvon don't quite have it, at least not yet for Shayvon.

Aquaman

That coach from Miss St. got trucked by John Wall.

Anyone else notice Scott Lawson playing 1st Base the past 4 games?

Asking a guy who is a 2Basemen and started every single game except 1 last year at 2Base, and every game except the past four this year at 2Base ... (was All-ACC 2nd Team last year) ... to go play 1st so you can maximize your lineup - team player, smart skipper


Canes 7-3, bottom of the 4th

they just beat two teams that could've been 2 seeds had they not lost (Michigan St. & Purdue) and could upset Ohio St. today.

down by 3 with 2.4 seconds left....then they inbound the ball and if he had fouled there would of been probably 1.7-1.9 seconds left on the clock....

now lets take a look at the scenarios...duke goes down and hits both freethrows game over...or duke goes down and hits one freethrow game over...or, and this is the one that would of probably happened (because coach k is a great coach).....duke goes down and hits the first freethrow and intentially misses the second freethrow and then theres a scramble for the ball and GAME OVER....either way its game over...now lick your wounds and be happy we were in it until the end...

CC, you would be referring to the Jonas Brothers and Gucci Mane, or whatever he calls himself.

3rd grade nursery schools songs require about as much talent.

Country's not nearly that bad. George Strait is great in my book.

BUT he's not getting me amped for anything but a cool Bud after a long day's work. haha

fmcane

Like most musical genres some country is certainly very good, but I think most people were citing the depplorable quality of modern country and most modern music at that. I just dont understand what happened to making good music. Im only in my mid 20's and I cant stand most of what is on the radio.

On another note lets go Canes!

SOUP

I don't think it is fair to criticize ANY form or style of music. To each his/her own. There are hard rockers that think country is for cowboys and country fans that think hard rock is just noise. There are rappers who can't stand classical music and classical lovers who think that rap is not even real music. There are salsa lovers who would never listen to the blues and blues fans that would never listen to much less dance to salsa.

How can you judge an entire music genre to be "bad" based on what is nothing more than your personal opinion? Why the hate?

Personally I like ALL kinds of music including all of those mentioned above and then some. Flamenco guitar is quite nice as is jazz. It's ALL good!

Wow, just WOW!! So now ALL Country music artists have no talent and can't read music? Are U serious? REALLY serious??? That sounds like obvious PREJUDICE AND DISCRMINATION to me? I thought U were against that kind of thing?

What about Darius Rucker? U see he is a really talented musician who writes his own songs who was the lead singer for Hootie And The Blowfish and now does ONLY Country and is HUGELY successful.

Is that the "IMAGE" U were thinking of? Does he make U VOMIT? LOL

Aquaman

I think what's great about music these days is if u wanna listen to something that's not mainstream it's easily accessibile.

Daytoncane

Wake Forest gets in as a 9 seed. we beat them by 20 without Collins.

Minnesota gets in as an 11 seed. they lost to us despite having a size advantage on us.

FSU and Duke easily get in and we had a chance to beat both teams both times.

things are looking up for the U.
