The University of Florida women’s basketball team couldn’t overcome its first-half shooting woes and ended its season with a 77-64 loss at Miami in the second round of the Women’s National Invitation Tournament Sunday afternoon at BankUnited Center.

Sophomore center Azania Stewart (Wood Green, England) scored a team-high 18 points with six rebounds and a career-tying four assists, as she hit 7-of-10 from the floor, but it wasn’t enough to counter the Gators’ 29.2 percent shooting mark in the first half, when Miami (19-13) used a 15-2 run and managed to keep Florida at bay the rest of the way.

Senior Steffi Sorensen (Jacksonville, Fla.) scored all of her 15 points in the second half, as she capped her stellar two-year Gator career with 601 points, totaling 161 three-pointers, as five came in her collegiate finale.

“We had scoring droughts, didn’t have shots fall, didn’t shoot with confidence and didn’t play well in general in the first half,” UF head coach Amanda Butler said. “In the second half, we shot how we are capable of shooting, but when you’re playing a tough opponent on their home floor, it was too little, too late. You have to give Miami a lot of credit for how they played and how ready they were to capitalize on our errors. We just did a horrible job taking care of the basketball.”

Been reading just can't post at work anymore for some reason.

Pitt, Tex A&M hurt me today. Think I need Kansas St. to beat Syracuse and Kentucky to win it all for me to have a chance.

Arthur (and most likely Bryce) headed to Manhattan; it comes across soft. Two guys who went to big time programs, couldn't hack it and running back home, tail between their legs. They'll be 'local' heroes for a program that went 6-6, 5-7 and 5-7 the past three seasons. A soft program with a soft head coach in Bill Snyder, known for loading his schedule with cupcakes to build up a win total. Just about anytime the Wildcats have been on the main stage, they've crapped the bed or were run out of the stadium.

Further proof of Snyder's ways? One of his first orders of business after reassuming head coaching duties last year? Dropping Miami from Kansas State's upcoming schedule. The Canes and Cats were slated for a home and home in 2011 and 2012. Snyder wanted no part of it, dropping a rising Miami team for another Sisters Of The Poor.

Golf Channel, ESPN conduct five-minute Tiger interviews
By Jay Busbee

The Golf Channel and ESPN have conducted the first sit-down interviews with Tiger Woods since his Thanksgiving accident and subsequent revelations of infidelity.

On why he got married:

Woods: "Why? ‘Cause I loved her. I loved Elin with everything I have. And that's something that makes me feel even worse. That I did this to someone I loved that much."

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I don't pretend to even know the man but believe he was board... plain and simple. For a man who has accomplished everything that he has done in his short lived life, there were no more mountains left to climb, except repeating what he has already done.

Lets be honest... Adventurous sex is the only stomping ground that can be repeated often, that each time brings you to a new high!!!... LOL

...Your Honor, I plead insanity... I'm just crazy about the stuff!...Ohhh Your Honor,,... I was a Badddd Boy!!!

All this BS news just keeps the sheep focused on stupid BS while our government rams the police state down our throats. Wake up!

PhillyCane

Hated by many, loved by few, we are the U.. any one got the countdown on days until the start of the season? Cause its going by wayyy to slow for my taste

Six

Many people are only as faithful as their options

I don't really care who cheated on who with what or how many ... if I did, I'd be watching Soap Operas everyday and glued to every word of Inside Edition/Entertainment Tonight/TMZ/The View and all that other life wasting garbage

All he needed to say was "ya, I f'ed up, I owe an apology to my family and my wife ... I will try and change and do what I can to change ... I'm an idiot for doing what I did ... thank you." And then have Tiger come back with his proverbial middle finger extended to people if they still bash him.

He didn't do what he did while his wife had cancer and had a child out of wedlock during it (John Edwards)

He didn't do what he did, using the taxpayers money to fly state aircraft, pricey airline tickets and misused campaign money while racking up 37 state ethics violations to go to the "Appalachian Trail"
(Governor Sanford)

He didn't bring back HIV from having affairs (Magic Johnson)

He wasn't in public restrooms with his "wide stance", tapping on the feet of other guys taking a leak and wanting to play Brokeback Senator with anyone else - would've loved to see his wife's reaction on that (Senator Craig)

Ya, imagine the backlash of all that. I think Elin would've used something more than just a 3 Wood or Driver or whatever the hell she took batting practice on the Escalade with


I'm a fan of Tiger, always have been. I wasn't disappointed with what he did, it's none of my business. I thought it was dumb, but I then moved on from the 30 seconds it took me to think about how dumb he was. I have no idea what is going on in his marriage or life, and I really don't care. I wasn't one of the lemmings out there that bought into his wholesome big white smiley image that Buick portrayed him as. Where did everyone and why did everyone even think he was such a great guy in the first damn place?

Hey, that's on you - not him. Ever just pay attention to how he acts on the course? Dude throws his clubs, breaks sh*t, yells profanities, tells his caddie to go take care of some jackhole in the gallery that's distracting him ... he's not exactly shaking hands, kissing babies and making sure to go out of his way to hang out with the gallery and glad hand everyone with a huge smile

The guy is a robot ... an assassin ... the ultimate competitor ... he's the MJ of the golf world - if you like him or hate him, honestly, he really doesn't care b/c he's going to do whatever it takes to win and you're just there to witness it

Don't give me anything about him losing sponsors either. Nike is still backing him and that's all that matters - their money is the most from any of his sponsors anyway. EA Sports is also sticking by him - why the hell wouldn't they? The Tiger Woods Golf Game is right up there with Madden Football and Tony Hawk skateboarding game.

Accenture? Who cares. Buick? So what. Gatorade stopped making his drink, and did it before this whole fiasco came out anyway - but they're still in bed with the Tiger Woods Foundation.

Proctor & Gamble said they don't know if he'll appear in another Gillette commercial - well, what's the point of showing him, along with Roger Federer and Derek Jeter, if Tiger is the only one of them that isn't in sports competition? That was the gimmick - 3 guys who are pretty damn good at their game, using the Gillette razor and then going out to play. What was Tiger going to be shown doing .. shaving and then going to sex rehab? While Federer shaved and won the Aussie Open and Jeter shaved and won another World Series with the Yanks?

This is one of the greatest things to ever happen to the PGA - the Masters is going to be incredibly INSANE with ratings and press outside of the gates

You realize you have to apply for credentials to the Masters in December ... only to be put onto a "consideration" list in February - and after that, then it's decided whether or not you can get in?

I know. We tried - and we're a CBS affiliate, one of the biggest in the South


CaneSawMassacre

Six the only thing that irritated me about Tiger was his insistence to blame other people, groups, outlets for his problems that he caused..

I honestly didn't care about him before or after, I would say a man's indiscretions are their own business but the price they pay for fame, is an inclusion of privacy....

Trust me, Tiger isn't giving up his billions, houses, cars, stock, and other such stuff so that he and Elin can have private alone time after he cheated.


He got the positive from the media (CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY endorsement money and exposure)

Then the bad (EVERY TABLOID, PAPARRAZI, and Evening entertainment show stalking him)

I'm sure the only thing he learned was next time be more careful.... SERIOUSLY, how stupid can u be...

Miami Hurricanes women top Florida Gators in WNIT

UM players received some motivation from former standouts before dominating the Gators in the second round of the Women's NIT.

BY ANDRE C. FERNANDEZ
a1fernandez@MiamiHerald.com

Hurricanes coach Katie Meier didn't need to say much to motivate her team this weekend.

When some of the University of Miami's notable women's basketball alumni showed up at practice, Meier let them do the talking.

``We had a few of them come by, like Yalonda McCormick, Mechelle Murray, Cassandra Williams, Kym Hope and Carla Harris,'' Meier said. ``We left them in the locker room to talk to the team.

``They told them all about pride and swagger, what it's like to play for Miami, and what the series against [the Gators] is all about.''

Many of the alumni stuck around Sunday afternoon at BankUnited Center to see if the pep talk worked.

The Canes responded with a dominant 77-64 victory against the visiting Florida Gators in a second-round game of the Women's National Invitation Tournament

``They told them all about pride and swagger, what it's like to play for Miami, and what the series against [the Gators] is all about.''

SO THAT'S WHERE OUR SWAGGER WENT!

I knew it was around here somewhere...

solarcane

I guess because on my things to do list watching golf would be right along side having a spinal tap, I could care less about Tiger's fate.

Capt O sums it up nicely.
"He's a liar and a ho, to himself and his wife and his so-called fans"

dz,

Like I said those that aren't numb nuts would know what I meant.

Shields did what thousands of college kids are doing everyday.
To me it wasn't anything, but he got caught so he pays for it.

I don't cut him any slack just because he was an average football player that happened play here.

That's why at the same time I don't rush on here with every FSU/Gator/Ohio State misdemeanor charge and make it sound like Charlie Manson was hacking up Sebastian.

If you cut one kid slack, cut all kids slack.
If you hold one responsible hold everyone responsible.

get it?

Ungar

does Sam Shields get a pass on his arrest because he's a Cane? i bet he does.

i wonder what the reaction would be if it was a UF player?

Posted by: Daytoncane | March 20, 2010 at 02:41 PM

Nope, no free pass. In fact, unlike some players up north that get to play in their bowl game after a DUI, I GUARANTEE that Sheilds will not play another game for the University of Miami. Is that a strong enough reaction?

That kid Farok kid got stones so big he needed an extra seat on the bus for them.

Six

Meph - I'm with you on the rabbits being let loose on the bases, always loved being aggressive in that aspect of the game

When I see them attempting to steal 3rd Base, brings a huge smile to my face .. gotta be aggressive

You also notice Morris putting DeVoss in the 9 hole and Ratcliff in the leadoff? That reminds me of what the Rays used to do with Joey Gathright and Carl Crawford in their lineup - two speed demons. DeVoss gets on base, he's a threat to steal while Ratcliff is up to bat and is getting to see better pitches simply b/c of DeVoss being on base

Ratcliff being a single short of hitting for the cycle yesterday is also nice. He's still a baby Cane too, being a Frosh

Always cracks me up when a hitter can't get a single to complete the cycle - but yet, can get the most difficult hit in baseball in getting a triple

Nothing also could be better than getting a 2 out game on the line RBI Double, in the top of the 9th, like Grandal did

I don't like seeing the errors, esp. when they lead to runs. Erickson giving up 6, but only 3 were earned

I still also have to give complete props to Coach Morris for utilizing his team the best way possible in moving Scott Lawson to 1st Base, so Frankie Ratcliff can get in the lineup as well to play 2Base - of course it shows the kind of teammate Lawson is, moving to 1st

everybody seems to like Cinderella stories so much. it's a wonder why there isn't a playoff in college football.

like it or not, college basketball (and every other college sport) has it right.

but i guess the BCS is just superior to every other system. go football!!!!

Mephistopheles

Yeah Six, Morris deserves a lot of props-the guy has been money for a long time. Hard to argue with him about anything, though I still do. I think he did the same in 06 with speed at the top of the lineup and Tekotte at 9, and I'm pretty sure I've seen it in other years too.

BTW, they better have their running shoes on this weekend-NCST has only thrown out 2 all year and has the worst caught stealing % in the ACC, I believe.

From www.hurricanesports.com:

University of Miami junior left-hander Chris Hernandez has been named Atlantic Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week, as announced by the league office on Monday. The award is the second for Hernandez in his career and the first for a Miami player this season.

Hernandez was recognized after tossing his first career complete game in Miami's 3-1 win against Duke on Friday at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. He allowed one run on just two hits while walking one and striking out six to earn his second win of the season.

The complete game was the first for a Miami pitcher in a true road game in nearly seven years, going back to when J.D. Cockcroft last accomplished the feat for the `Canes at Virginia on April 11, 2003.

From Heather Dinich at ESPN:

Last year, I predicted Miami's Matt Bosher would win the Lou Groza Award, marking the second straight season an ACC player would be named the nation's top place-kicker. FSU's Graham Gano won it following the 2008 season.

Well, I was wrong, but it remains a very real possibility again this season. And Bosher isn't the only one with a shot at it.

After a season filled with inexperienced place-kickers, the ACC now has some legitimate talent returning. Here are the top five Groza candidates this year in the ACC -- and yes, Bosher is my front-runner again this year:

Matt Bosher, Miami: Bosher, who doubles as the Canes' punter and place-kicker, leads all returning place-kickers nationally in career field goal accuracy, having made 32 of 36 attempts, an average of .889. He missed only two field goals in 2009 -- both against Georgia Tech in the season’s second game -- and finished the year having made 12 consecutive field goals. Bosher hasn't missed a PAT in 90 tries.

Six

Meph - here's some things about NC State in the ACC

1st in Team Batting (.358)
*Miami is 8th (.302)

1st in RBI (215)
*Miami is 8th (139)

1st in Runs (236)
*Miami is 7th (196)

1st in Doubles (60)
*Miami is 4th (43)

6th in Triples (6)
*Miami is 1st (11)

2nd in HRs (33)
*Miami is 7th (20)

3rd in Walks (116)
*Miami is 6th (107)

9th in Strikeouts (115)
*Miami is 3rd (133)

7th in Stolen Bases (26)
*Miami is 2nd (37)

3rd in Errors (29)
*Miami is 7th (23)

And ya, they basically can't throw anyone out. They are the easiest in the ACC to steal on - they've allowed 29 of 31 stolen base attempts ... Miami has allowed 18 of 27 stolen base attempts.


NC State also has:

5 of the top 20 hitters in the ACC - #5, #8, #11, #15, #16
*Miami has 1 and he's #20 (Grandal)

The #1 and #2 leaders in RBI
*Miami has no one in the top 10

The #2 Stolen Base leader
*Miami has the #5 and #7 (Perez, Ratcliff)

The #1 and #3 On Base Percentage leaders
*Miami has the #7 and #9 (Grandal, Broad)

The #3, #4 and #7 Slugging % leaders
*Miami has no one in the top 10

From Millian at the Palm Beach Post:

Dye is fully healthy and has been impressive this spring, including in UM’s scrimmage at Lockhart Stadium on March 11 when he registered a couple of quarterback pressures.

But healthy or not, Dye may not play much more than he did last season. The Hurricanes are loaded at defensive end, counting six players – Allen Bailey, Steven Wesley, Adewale Ojomo, Marcus Robinson, Andrew Smith and Olivier Vernon — who have started at least once during their careers.

“Right now, I’m not worrying about how hard it’s going to be [to find playing time],” Dye said. “I’m just worrying about getting better and just competing. If I worry about how hard it is, then I won’t get a spot. Whatever the coaches decide, then that’s what they decide.”

Whether it’s the 2010 season or further down the line, Dye appears to have the goods to be a big contributor. He’s 6-foot-5 and has added 15 pounds since last season to 250. If there’s an ounce of fat on his body, it’s not visible in pads.

“We expect a lot out of him,” UM coach Randy Shannon said. “He’s got a lot of intensity.”

Nice job on the info Soup, keep it coming

Tiger Woods has more money than he'll ever need and can walk in anywhere and pull hot ass. Yeah none of you on here would ever do what he did if you were in his shoes. LOL!

All this BS news just keeps the sheep focused on stupid BS while our government rams the police state down our throats. Wake up!

I wouldn't and won't. If you want to be a Ho do it before you get married, like Jeter.

Jeter's probably not as ridiculous as Tiger though but no one cares because he's not LYING or BETRAYING anyone.

As for the whores and liars in DC, I'm watching this crap with an interesting eye to see how many arms they twist and how many back door deals are being struck, while the details of this so-called health-care deficit machine are kept in the closet.

There's no difference between what Tiger did and what the hoes in DC have been doing since Andrew Jackson was in office.

And like Tiger, the hour of exposure and reckoning is approaching, slowly but surely.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Six, I don't and haven't given a rat's azz about Tiger and his life, probably because I don't golf. But his statement about loving his wife was the biggest piece of BS I've ever heard come out of a public figures life when talking about their sex scandal.

I don't think Edwards ever said anything that idiotic about his affairs and his wife. He was smart and STFU.

Haith will be drinking plenty next year. The canes are making the tourney next year. Bank on it.

j.w.

haith better get to the tournament next year since they are likely expanding to 96 teams.

...that is definitely NOT a done deal.

My predicition is for the 64 team field.
Either way, they're going.

some serious Uncle Luke rumors.....

Posted by: SlingBlade | March 22, 2010 at 06:45 PM

Uncle Luke is a pretty reliable source. If this is true, unless it was some kind of sharing of intelligence (how likely is that?) or personal visit, this is serious news.

TT is Assistant HC, and WR coach at Auburn. My head is spinning.

j.w.

All signs are pointing to it, though Canes. And I don't like going to 96, at all. I do hope you're right about being one of the top 64, it would be nice to root for my team this time of year.

Cav - too bad more people can't be like you and not give a crap about Tiger and everything he does

You know he had to say that about his wife b/c he was basically forced to by his "people" .. which I think is stupid

Like I said, I'd rather him come out, say sorry to his family/wife, say he's an idiot for doing it and then say that's it ... if you guys don't like me, I don't give a s***, I'm going to come back to the PGA in which without me wouldn't draw d**k for ratings and who I helped tremendously - and just flat out dominate

I'm a fan of what he does on the golf course - I could care less about his personal life

And dude, what exactly can Edwards ever say about anything of what he did? The guy cheated on his wife while she was going through cancer and had a child with the woman he was having an affair with behind his cancer stricken wife

So, of course the right move is to say nothing, b/c there is nothing to say in that situation. You can't apologize to anyone or anything - that's just straight up wrong what he did

Six

Sebastian - ya, I know that the owner of Innisbrook is trying her hardest to make that place something special

She's definitely made some major changes to it

Our main sports guy likes that course a lot ... I think he plays golf more than he sits down to eat

Six

Ali Farokmanesh and Omar Samhan ...

Farokmanesh is a beast for what he did at the end of the game against Kansas

And what the hell was that Kansas defender thinking, when he started to rush out to guard him, then backed off and went back under the basket? The kid left Ali with a wide open 3 look and Ali shoved that knife right into the heart of Kansas

Six all of those guys suck as Men....as I always say just stay single and no one gets hurt.

Think about it they teach defenders to let the low percentage shot go and secure the rebound under the basket, they only do what they are coached to do.

Six - I agree but it's still a beautiful play to watch. He shot it with such confidence, with no hesitation, you know he KNEW he was going to hit that three even before the ball was in his hands. What a confident shot!
