Miami Hurricanes freshman guard Shane Larkin is celebrating his father's election to the baseball Hall of Fame.
The younger Larkin had just returned from practice for Tuesday's game against No. 3 North Carolina when he turned on the TV in his hotel room to learn the good news.
Barry Larkin, a former Cincinnati Reds shortstop, was chosen in his third year of eligibility. Shane said he's never been to Cooperstown but will definitely attend the ceremony for his dad's induction.
Shane, who was around the Reds a lot as a youngster when his dad was still playing, chose basketball over baseball as a grade-schooler. He became a high school star in Orlando, committed to DePaul in 2010 and transferred to Miami before this season.
