FOR KIRIJAX'S EYES ONLY:

AUSTIN, Texas – Two weeks removed from a win over conference opponent No. 32 Georgia Tech, the No. 10 University of Miami women’s tennis team took down the No. 22-ranked Texas Longhorns 6-1 at the Penick-Allison Tennis Center.

“We played great doubles today which gave us the momentum early, that was essential against a team like Texas,” head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews said.

The Hurricanes took advantage of strong doubles play led by Monique Albuquerque and Clementina Riobueno, who beat the Longhorns’ Lina Padegimaite and Lana Groenvynck, 8-2, to win the first doubles match. That was followed up shortly by another 8-2 Miami win over the Longhorns, when No. 48 Lina Lilekeite and Stephanie Wagner took down the No. 19-ranked doubles in the nation, Breaunna Addison and Noel Scott.

The Hurricanes started to pull away after No. 100 Stephanie Wagner defeated Texas’ Noel Scott, 6-3, 6-4. Kelsey Laurente, playing at No. 1 singles and ranked No. 81 in the nation, clinched the Hurricane victory with a 7-5, 6-1 win over No. 42 Aerial Ellis of Texas.

“I am so proud of Kelsey on court one today,” said Yaroshuk-Tews. “She was smoked by Ellis in January. We gave her a plan that she wasn't the most comfortable with but she embraced it and trusted us. As long as she keeps building on today this could really be a turning point in her career.”

The Hurricanes' last point came from court 5 as No. 116 Clementina Riobueno won 6-2, 4-6, 1-0 (10-7) over Padegimaite. “Our business in Texas is far from complete,” warned Yarohshuk-Tews. “We need to bring to our ‘A’ game tomorrow against Baylor and finish what we started.”

Miami takes the court again tomorrow against the Baylor Bears in Waco, Texas at 2 p.m.

Bay Hill gave up 13 eagles today, making 24 in first 36 holes.

For each one, #EaglesforArniesKids gives $5K to Arnold Palmer Hospital.

GOOD CAUSE.

FGCU just broke about a million sheets

Also, OGV serving a big slice of humble pie on the last blog. I have to remember to double check any statistics I quote about my accuracy calling recruits' destinations, or I could end up with a double serving.

“I was saying to Durand, we waited four years to play in this tournament and we finally got our first win.”

-Reggie Johnson

JCane

It's not only worth pointing out FGCU's win today, but also almost every team from the U's schedule this year, other than NCState (I was surprised they lost to Temple). Arizona, LaSalle (big upset over KState), UNC, Duke, FGCU and Mich. State.... 6 of the remaining 31 teams (excluding the U, of course) were on the U's schedule this past season, and I think 7 of the initial 68 had been. It would have been even more interesting had the Wolfpack won, but it's still reflective of quite the difficulty of schedule. For those who forget, the U defeated all but Arizona and FGCU of this bunch, although the 2 games with Duke were split....but 2 vs. NCSt. and 3 vs. UNC were won. This means the Canes played 11 games vs. tournament teams this season, and 9 vs. teams in the second round.

If the U plays like it is capable, I don't see the big challenges hitting until the elite 8. However, one bad game (ie GTech, WFU, Ind. State, etc.), and none of this will matter any more.

Congrats on an amazing day, Canes. Unfortunately there are high expectations, a place the U basketball team isn't used to being. It's a nice problem to have!

BTW, nice article re: today's game vs. Pacific. I think Illinois will be much more of a challenge, but the U will be a tough matchup for the Illini. I am expecting Butler to take care of Marquette in a close one to match up with the winner of the U vs. Ill., but that's why the games get played.

Nice weekend all.

Clint Hurtt has been placed on Admin leave

orange 'n green in the vein

Feeling a little butt hurtt tonight, Clint? What a two faced chuckle head clown. Who can't position coach a damn either.

Who looked worse these last two days, Gonzaga or Kansas? Going to have to go with the final poll #1 just slightly only because I liked WKU's team a little more but Kansas just didn't look like they had an obvious advantage at any of the five spots on the floor tonight while Stockton's kid and the long hair Big Country Reeves Jr. were able to outplay their counterparts for long stretches of their game which has to worry Jayhawk supporters tonight.

orange 'n green in the vein

Went 21-11 for the 2nd round on one bracket with NCST, OKST dead picks to the sweet 16 and Georgetown dead to the elite 8, so I'm already 0-3 before tip tomorrow and 0-1 next weekend already as well.

Other bracket is 22-10 with the Hoyas a dead draw just through the sweet 16 as the only difference

Thought long and hard about FGCU but never pulled the trigger, I thought they'd choke away a close game but they built too big a lead to do so tonight. Considering I haven't done a single one of these since I was actually in school at UM I'm feeling alright about the 3rd round with what I've got left as on both I've got UL, Michigan, Arizona and the real UM in the final four.

Mia Chi 'Cane '98

Will have a house divided on Sunday... Wife went to Illinois. Live. In Chicago so a majority of our friends went to Illinois as well. I would love to have bragging rights over my Illini friends. The kids have Miami gear but the wife wants at least one in Illini Gear. At least the cat will be rooting for Miami with me because her name is Mia.

HawaiiCane

Mia Chi, my wife is also a Illinois grad. We live in Schaumburg and my best friend is a U of I alum. No kids, but she rescued the cat so it's on her side. I never thought our house would be divided, Sunday will be fun. Go 'Canes!!!

CGNC

Good win by the hoops team. I cannot believe there aren't more comments about them.

CoCane

CGNC,

Unfortunately this blog is more fascinated with the hope of the football team breaking out, than the magnificent play of a hoops team that can win a title.

We debate about IF Golden & his staff will bring us back but Larranaga & his staff have us THERE. Championship play is expected from the football & baseball programs. Neither has brought that to the field in years. We're seeing it being done on the court & it's not appreciated. Smfh...

CoCane

I would love to talk hoops but lets face it. No one gives a fukk. Lol

One last point. If the football team was having this type of success, the blog would have 1,000 comments...

SOUP

Behind an impressive start from sophomore lefthander Chris Diaz, the Miami Hurricanes took down No. 24 Virginia Tech 11-9 in the series opener Friday night at Alex Rodriguez Park.

Diaz delivered his fifth quality start in six opportunities this season, scattering seven hits across a career-long eight innings. After surrendering two runs in the first, Diaz would settle down to allow only four hits the rest of the way. The sophomore picked up speed as the night progressed, striking out the side in the seventh and retiring 10 of the last 11 batters he faced. He ended the night with a career-best six punchouts.

After falling behind in the first, the Hurricanes struck for five runs over the next two frames, including a four-run third that saw Miami send all nine batters to the plate.

Miami (18-7, 3-4 ACC) cut the deficit to 2-1 with a run in the second. Junior Brad Fieger opened the inning with a double belted into the left-center gap, while a sacrifice fly from freshman Ricky Eusebio two batters later put Miami on the board.

Back-to-back singles from Christopher Barr and Alex Hernandez to open the third gave the Hurricanes a prime scoring opportunity in the early going. Senior Chantz Mack delivered on his chance, roping his first triple of the season down the rightfield line to help Miami take a 3-2 lead.

After Virginia Tech (17-6, 4-3 ACC) starter Brad Markey set down the next two batters, the hosts came up with some timely two-out hitting to increase their early advantage. Michael Broad connected on an RBI single, and eventually took third on an error by Hokies' centerfielder Andrew Rash and a balk from Markey (2-2). After Ricky Eusebio was issued a four-pitch walk, slugger David Thompson delivered an opposite field single that plated Broad, as the Canes opened a 5-2 lead.

That was all Diaz (3-1) would need, as he retired 12 of the next 15 batters after the first.

Yeah, I think I got jobbed in the negotiation process. I am looking for a loophole in the contract to renegotiate or else we may be over the salary cap, even by Alabama-LSU-Louisville standards.

MIA Chi 'Cane '98

Hawaii... Two of my very good friends in Chicago are UM almuni as well and there wives also went to Illinois and were in the same sorority there so we are all going to watch it together. Should be a fun and hopefully memorable Sunday! Definitely in enemy territory the next 36 hours.

Great stuff. And it doesn't even mention the positive influence MJ can have on a locker room.

In an ideal world, he'd get drafted by the 49ers to take over for Frank Gore, who'll retire in two years after winning at least one Super Bowl.

In any case, I wish Mike James the best of luck. A class guy who went through a lot in his time as a Cane and always was 100% loyal to the program.

Now you can pronounce the trio as busts all the way through, for those still waiting to see like I was.

Dyron will never have the agility necessary to cut in line for chicken nuggets again, a sad day in Chartwell's history. (Is it still Chartwell's? I don't know.)

Coke, I'm in total scan and scroll mode when it comes to most spring football posts right now, I read the baseball ones and basketball posts I read and actually think, do I agree with this and is it right? If the football team was ranked #5 at the end of the season this blog would have 1000 comments in every two hours all day long.

I believe Ohio's contract is null if he pops positive for blogging enhancing drugs. You need a stiffer testing policy, but fot that you will have to negotiate with the bloggers union. Uphill battle.

I would rather Morris have a hard day, practice harder then games, make him work harder all summer.

OGV football is a more popular sport what can you do? the gayturds won a chip in BBall but their campus did not care much lol

Ohio would get a 4 game suspension with his first violation The Dude, he also would be entered into a 12 step program.

86Cane

Dude...U just reminded me, there IS a blog enhancing drug testing clause in Ohio's contract. I'll see if I can make it stick after dealing with his agent and the Union reps. Now if I can just get him tested U know he's coming up dyrty, right?

CGNC & CoCane, I agree what you are saying about this being a football and even a baseball blog. But what we are witnessing and could witness in the next two weeks can be historic and something we may never see again or for a very very long time. We should embrace this team on here until their season is over then we can debate D'No's no D or Fire Jim Morris. We have plenty of time to do that.

I know I am enjoying this run and trying to cherish every single moment of it. What a difference in this basketball program when I first got back into it in 2007 with McClinton & Clemente.

I'm conceding that point already Hassan and honestly, if The Pimp had delivered a Haith special type season this year with the basketball team I would probably actually muster up a pretension of giving a F' about the glorified scrimmages this year, but why waste any single moment of this once in a lifetime type of rise for the program by giving two cares about which DL is going to be moved to OL after Briscoe when they'll just be moved back by the fall anyway? I can't do it and I'm not doing it, others mileage will vary obviously.

CoCane

What's the new basketball commit's name???

FROM CANESINSIGHT:

The most interesting development of the day was Malcolm Bunche playing guard. With Flowers continuing to climb towards his sky-high ceiling, this may be something we see more of in the future. Isidora played RG and Wheeler made some nice open-field blocks at center. Odogwu looks the part but is still a work in progress. Hoilett had his way with him a couple times. Wells and Gadbois also got reps with the ones (Gadbois at LT).

- The defensive line had a good day. Hoilett in particular impressed me with his activity. Porter and Pierre have solidified things inside and Hamilton is getting increased reps with the ones. The Dye injury is heartbreaking. He chased down a couple plays before he hurt his ankle.

- As the president of the Alex Figueroa fan club, today's performance was beautiful. He runs extremely well sideline to sideline, is all over the field, and is very active in coverage. He deflected a pass, made multiple tackles and blew up an end-around to Dorsett. The scary thing is he's still getting bigger and isn't even 100% from his shoulder injury. He will be a star here. The other primary linebackers (DP, Gaines and Kirby) did well and spearheaded the defense. McCord has gotten significantly bigger and will factor in.

- Howard has several nice pass breakups and is coming on strong. Crawford ended the game with a pick and also looked good. Dortch is still skinny but showed he could be physical on several strong tackles. Bush is Bush, but he needs to refine his tackling technique or his shoulder will always be banged up.

- The biggest positive of the day may have been Matt Goudis. He made several field goals, including one close to 50 yards, and looked much improved from last year.

- I spotted Chad Thomas, Michael Smith and Jermaine Grace in the crowd.

Overall, good performance by the defense and nice energy throughout.

86Cane

FROM STATEOFTHEU:

After a dominating win in the opening round of March Madness, the Canes hoop squad and Coach Larranaga got a much needed commit from JUCO standout James Kelly. The Owens CC (Toledo, OH) 6' 8" 245 pound forward had a terrific year averaging 18.4 points and 10.5 rebounds per game this season. Kelly recently broke the Owens Express career rebounding mark and gives the Canes a much needed presence at the 3/4 position next year.

Kelly told SOTU the reasons why he chose Miami over New Mexico and others:

I feel like when I first started being recruited, Coach L made me feel comfortable...like I was apart of the family. I chose Miami because its a life experience and I would want to help the program excel... Coach L and the coaching staff are good coaches.

With 5 Seniors graduating, including big men Julian Gamble, Kenny Kadji and Reggie Johnson, Kelly will likely fill one of those open slots.

Hassan

Terrance, they looked ready to shock the world yesterday, they are certainly playing better basketball than the Sweet 16 squad did under Clark and pretty soon will have every program measure of success to claim as the standard all others have to compare themselves against in Coral Gables.

Kadji is going to have to get going Sunday but Reggie might be ready to pick up the offensive slack if Kenny still struggles, Durand is playing zoned in all the time right now and even Jones is is going to make some scouting report warnings the way he's balling in this tournament. Too many guys who can hurt a team too many ways for Miami means it's going to be a tough out for the Hurricanes this time.

orange 'n green in the vein

And the women's team made their tournament as an 8 seed too but I think I'll be watching the late games in the men's bracket at 7:30 pm Sunday rather than seeing if they can hold off Iowa while throwing the tennis ball through the rim more times than the Hawkeyes can in 40 minutes.

If it's any consolation I give a little more care to how that team does in its' postseason tournament than how the glorified scrimmages go for the embarrassing (defensive half of the) football team.
