As the midwest #2 seed Miami Hurricanes (28-6, 15-3 ACC) practiced on Saturday, the fire alarm went off in the arena and delayed their practice for 25 minutes. It could've went off because the Hurricanes are on fire. The Hurricanes demolished Pacific on Friday 78-49. Miami's senior guard Durand Scott (13.5 ppg) had 21 points on Friday and led the Hurricanes to the easy victory.
The Hurricanes play #7 seed Illinois Fighting Illini (23-12, 8-10 Big Ten) on Sunday, March 24 at approximately 8:40 pm. Led by senior guard Brandon Paul (16.6 ppg), the Fighting Illini beat #10 seed Colorado 57-49. Paul had 17 points against Colorado.
For the Hurricanes to continue on to the Sweet Sixteen, they will need to have Scott and sophomore guard Shane Larkin continue to be on fire. Miami, in the last two games, have made 24 three-pointers and shot 54 percent from behind the arc. Like I menti...

Miami Hurricanes men's basketball coach Jim Larranaga danced like legendary boxer Muhammad Ali in the locker room after Sunday's win over Illinois to reach the round of the Sweet 16 in the NCAA tournament.
Larranaga was giving his postgame speech when he told his players "I asked you guys to be fighters. You know what I saw out there? Muhammad Ali!"
This, my friends, will be the best videobomb of this year’s NCAA Tournament. It took place after Miami (FL) held off Illinois 63-59 to advance to the Sweet 16. Miami senior big man Julian Gamble got teammate Shane Larkin in Larkin’s post game interview. Larkin hit a huge three-pointer in the last minute and finished with 17 points. Gamble finished with two points, five...
Miami Hurricanes’ Julian Gamble is up to his photobombing ways again. During the ACC Tournament, Gamble photobombed his coach during an interview. This time, Shane Larkin was being interviewed after The U beat Illinois and Gamble photobombed him. Gamble has certainly perfected his method and I hope he continues to do this as the Hurricanes continue their NCAA Tournament...
The Miami Hurricanes are going to the Sweet 16. They defeated the Fighting Illini of Illinois 63-59 and one of the stars of the game Shane Larkin was the victim of an epic photobomb from his teammate Julian Gamble.
The post Shane Larkin Was The Victim Of A Photobomb appeared first on Ride The Pine.
Just asking a question: bloated or pregnant? When’s the last time you saw a Miami Hurricanes cheerleader looking like she needed some Gas-X softgels? Never, right? Of course we’ll get blasted by women for asking such a question, but it’s not like they’re not thinking the same thing we’re asking.
Anyway, in other Florida basketball news, the Gators get to play a #14 seed...
AUSTIN, Texas - Miami players Trey McKinney Jones, Julian Gamble and Kenny Kadji discuss the NCAA Tournament third round matchup with Illinois.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) There was no question about Shane Larkin's go-ahead 3-pointer for Miami.
The ball that appeared to ricochet off the hands of Miami's Kenny Kadji seconds later but went to the Hurricanes -- well, look at the replay.
Regardless, there is no overturning the fact that the Hurricanes are going to the NCAA round of 16 for only the second time in school history...

Read on to see what Hurricane star Reggie Johnson is saying the night before the team takes on Illinois in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.
A closer look at Illinois' NCAA Tournament third round opponent -- the Miami Hurricanes.
Two big bits of news this morning until JP comes through with today’s DMV a little bit later:
1. Our old friend Jim Larranaga seemed to be having a good time after his Miami Hurricanes advanced to the Sweet 16, where they’ll play in D.C.
2. George Mason is officially leaving the CAA for the A-10. Good for them, but probably bad for JMU.
Shane Larkin going head-to-head with Vander Blue? How about Davante Gardner and Kenny Kadji squaring off?
Miami and Marquette will have some fun on-the-court match-ups when the two schools square off in the Sweet 16 in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, but let's forget about that for a few minutes and focus on which coach is a better dancer.
Miami coach Jim Larranaga and Marquette...
Illinois senior Brandon Paul took one last 3-pointer.
When the ball bounced off the rim as time ran out, Paul put his head down and stared at the floor. After halfheartedly shaking hands with the victorious Miami players, Paul pulled his Illini jersey over his head as he walked off the court.
Miami got Shane Larkin's go-ahead 3-pointer with a minute left and a close call after...
