Junior righthander Andrew Cabezas was recognized with ACC Pitcher of the Week honors after an outstanding performance on the hill in the nightcap of a doubleheader with Pittsburgh on April 21.

Cabezas put together the best start of his career to help Miami salvage its series with Pitt at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.

The fiery righthander threw the first complete game shutout by a Miami hurler since May 14, 2015, with a gem against the Panthers. Cabezas, a native of Miami Gardens, Fla., struck out a career high-tying 11 batters, including two in the ninth, and faced just four batters over the minimum in the second complete game of his career.

ACC weekly honors are determined by a vote of a select media panel. This is the first weekly league honor of Cabezas' career and fifth time this season a Hurricane has been selected; junior outfielder Danny Reyes was named ACC Co-Player of the Week on Feb. 19, while sophomore righthander McKendry was also named ACC Pitcher of the Week on Feb. 26 and March 12, as well as ACC Co-Pitcher of the Week on March 26.

Cabezas and the Hurricanes return to the diamond Wednesday with a midweek matchup against visiting FIU to close out a five-game homestand. First pitch for the game, slated for broadcast on ACC Network Extra and WVUM 90.5 FM, is set for 6 p.m.

The University of Miami women's track and field team entered the top-15 in the latest edition of the NCAA DI Women's Outdoor Track & Field National Team Computer Rankings, as announced Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches' Association (USTFCCCA).

The Hurricanes vaulted up eight spots to No. 15, appearing in the USTFCCCA top 25 for the second consecutive week. Sixteen marks combined to make up Miami's team score of 105.51 points.

This week's rankings are the first without any preseason marks and they show that the Hurricanes are built for long-term success. Nine of Miami's 16 scored marks were produced by freshmen, a number that leads all 189 ranked women's teams in this edition of the USTFCCCA National Team Computer Rankings.

The University of Miami women's tennis team wrapped up the regular season with its sixth straight victory Sunday afternoon at Notre Dame.

No. 17 Miami (15-6, 11-3 ACC) recorded a 6-1 triumph at the Courtney Tennis Complex to earn its second road defeat of the Fighting Irish in seven opportunities. It marked the fourth time this season, including the third in the past five outings, the Hurricanes notched at least six points.

"We played Miami tennis today. I'm proud of how these ladies finished out the regular season," Miami head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews said. "We were really doing some good things on a lot of courts, so it was fun. I'm excited to get home and have a few days to get focused on our next step."

This article has me jacked up! Can't wait to see this D in action. The DL got screwed by the refs!!! This D will be better than last year which is scary.

TBC...5 holding calls ALL season including the ACC title game and bowl game? How many were called against us in those same games?

TBC, Thanks for sharing that re-post of the BARRY JACKSON article. Terrible disparity. Has to be the lowest numbers against a top ten defense in sacks and tackles for loss.

I guess the Canes will have to play with that chip on their shoulder this season until the refs start giving the Canes defense the respect it deserves. Can’t dwell too much on what isn’t being called.

Just prepare for the worst and don’t expect any help. That’s the Canes way

BigWindyCane1

At the end of Spring, it appears that CMR has been successful in upgrading the talent on the roster. The Canes are getting a lot more talented across the board, but the younger players lack experience. The young QBs Perry and WILLIAMS and even Weldon are more talented than Rosier, but Rosier remains ahead due to experience and coaches’ trust. We will see what happens over the summer and fall.

The young WRs and RBs are as talented as any group in the ACC or even the entire country. Richards and Thomas will dominate the ACC and Lingard and Burns are as talented as Chubb and Michel were last season. The young OL is more talented than the upperclassmen as a group, but experience counts for a lot at OL and QB. The future is bright!

I would be proactive about addressing the terrible disparity in holding calls. I would be surprised if UM has not already done some of these things. Here are some steps I would take. I encourage others to share their ideas also:

1. Have the AD send a formal grievance letter to the NCAA, the ACC and the NCAA and ACC referee governing bodies requesting confirmation of receipt and a written response. Accompany this letter with game film of obvious holding that was not called. Ask for a written explanation of each case as to whether holding could have/should have been called.

2. Meet with each head referee before each game to review this information and ask them to pay special attention to holding calls during the game while we are on defense.

3. During this season send weekly game film of holding calls that were not called to ACC and NCAA rules committee and referee governing bodies asking for an explanation of each case.

4. Go public with this information (without directly criticizing refs) to the press on a regular and consistent basis to start an information campaign to raise awareness of this issue.

It’s as good a place to start as any, Soup.

You can’t play the quiet role in these situations, especially when “ they” want to screw us anyway.

Who is they?

The other football people.

They.

THEY!!!!!

Terrance Sullivan

The AD, Head Coach, etc have sent formal grievance to ACC and NCAA I expect things to get marginally better every year.

86Cane

I wish when they came out with these stats (5 total holding calls against opposing offenses) they would put it in context with other stats of how many times Miami was called for holding while on offense and what the ACC norms or averages were across all teams.

Aerocane

Lingard and Burns are as talented as Chubb and Michel were last season.

Big windy - take off the orange and green glasses Once in a while- excellent post until this point - lingard, yes - burns, gimme a break - he may not even play this year with Travis, deejay and LL ahead of him

Study showings that ACC refs show bias not to the highest ranked teams, but to the teams with the most tenure in the conference:

Terrance Sullivan

Yes sir 86!

UM was ranked 43rd in total penalties and 41st in total penalty yards. So I don't think that there is a case that we were penalized unfairly, just that our opponents were not called for holding against our DL even when it was clear and obvious.

Go Canes!!

Coaches have been raving about Burns. Now that he’s healthy he’s been the player they thought he’d be.

He has potential to be elite. Our RB stable is one of the best in the country.

Go Canes!!

And anyone who doesn’t think there’s a blatant Carolina corridor bias against the Canes is either blind or insane.

Go Canes!!

Our TE commit Hodges now rates #2 overall at his position nationally.

He was an unranked, under the radar 3 Star when Hartley identified him early.

Like I said last week, I trust what our coaches see more than any recruiting service.

86Cane

Yeah, I have had to backtrack some of my comments on Hartley due to his excellent recruiting. Our ST are still garbage however.

Go Canes!!

Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne will be inducted into the Indianapolis Colts Ring of Honor at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday, November 18. Congrats, well deserved.

My Dad told me once don't trust anyone?

86Cane

We trusted Shannon.

We trusted Golden.

Trust is currently in short supply around here. IJS

86Cane

Hell we trusted Coker too. Coker had won a National Championship. Couldn't trust him could we? Shannon was Hurricane to the core. Seems like trust was lost in him fairly quickly. Golden spent time fishing (literally and figuratively) with JIMMY JOHNSON for fish fillets and nuggets of guidance. He never got it and trust was crushed. So it now seems that "trust" is hard to find, difficult to establish and easy to destroy.

His Royal Dudeness

Richt just won the ACC Coastal for the first time after 15 years in the wilderness, he did it in year two. I didnt trust Golden from the get go, so if you need someone to trust, you can trust me. Just chill, I'll tell everyone when its time to be very concerned, we arent there yet. Enjoy the ride.

OK, I trust you. Until I can't trust you anymore, if that ever comes...

If our freshmen are Lingard and Burns, then Davis can redshirt and be an animal freshman in 2019. We will only need to take 1 RB for 2019, and he can be a redshirt guy for 2020.

Good Luck

A Golden last minute addition a few years back. A stiff who should have not been recruited to play here.
