Miami Hurricanes vs. Stanford Cardinal game preview

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Miami Hurricanes were down to their fourth point guard. They had four freshmen on the court during one stretch, and players found themselves in roles they never filled during the regular season. And yet it's April and banged-up, short-handed Miami still has a game left. The Hurricanes face Stanford on Thursday at Madison Square Garden for the NIT championship...

Stellar Second Half Propels Hurricanes To NIT Final

By Austin Sapin As Tonye Jekiri crumpled to the floor with 13:51 remaining in the first half, the Miami Hurricanes had all the excuses they wanted in front of them. No Angel Rodriguez, No Tonye Jekiri and all against a 26-10 Temple team with plenty of experience. Throughout the NIT though, we’ve learned this team is never out of any game. Despite not having two of their most experienced...

Unbelievable Second Half Comeback Sends Canes to NIT Semis

By Austin Sapin Richmond, VA — The Miami Hurricanes led for just 64 seconds against Richmond Tuesday night, but all that matters is who is leading when the clock hits zero. Using a spirited second half comeback, Coach Larranaga’s squad was able to overcome just 18 first half points and defeat the Richmond Spiders 63-61 to move on to the NIT semifinals at Madison Square Garden...

Sluggish Miami Narrowly Defeats Virginia Tech

By Austin Sapin Here are my takeaways from tonight’s game: Where was the urgency? In a disappointing and uninspiring performance, the Miami Hurricanes edged out a 59-49 victory over Virginia Tech in the second round of the ACC Tournament. The game was extremely ugly on both ends and the Canes nearly dropped a game that would have completely eliminated any chance of them making...

Hurricanes with most to gain at ACC basketball tournament

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Like many college basketball fans at this time of year, Jim Larranaga had an argument ready in support of his team’s bid to make the NCAA tournament. Hours before boarding a plane for the ACC tournament in Greensboro, N.C., the Hurricanes coach whipped out his smartphone and began to read aloud a list of road records for 13 anonymous teams he said were “either...

Open Thread: Miami-Pitt, Loser Goes Home

A win won’t get either team into the NCAA Tournament, but it certainly knocks them down to the NIT. Lousy ACC Network coverage tonight.

Those of you going, please get there soon to help send off the seniors before the game. Miami has announced that...

Missing Angel Rodriguez, Miami's tournament hopes take serious hit with loss to UNC

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- As a sellout crowd -- the first of the season -- filtered into the BankUnited Center on Saturday afternoon, Miami redshirt junior Angel Rodriguez walked back into the locker room during warmups. When he returned with his right wrist heavily taped because of a sprain, it couldn't have come at a worse time for the Hurricanes. After a 73-64 loss to No. 15 North...

Rodriguez Revival Helps Hurricanes Survive Florida St. Scare

By Austin Sapin We’ve wondered why Coach Jim Larranaga has insisted on playing Angel Rodriguez for so many minutes. If he was waiting for the redshirt junior to have an explosive offensive game and regain his confidence, his plan might have just worked at the right time. In his best game in over a month, the Hurricanes point guard went off for 25 points helping Miami to a 81-77...

With his team needing a strong push to make the NCAA tournament, Hurricanes coach Jim Larranaga remains positive. “We have two home games and two road games left,” Larranaga said Monday. “We’ve been very, very close without playing our best.

Hurricanes Fall In Crucial Matchup Vs. Louisville

By Austin Sapin Miami’s season isn’t over, but today’s result made making the NCAA Tournament a much harder challenge for the Hurricanes. Leading for much of the game, the Canes fell 55-53 in a heartbreaking loss at No. 12 Louisville. In need of a big time victory to boost the resume, Angel Rodriguez missed a three pointer with time expiring. It was a fantastic performance...

The Miami Hurricanes do not have a bad record, but it is not a great one either (overall 17-9, 7-6 in conference). Is it good enough to make the Dance? Eh--maybe. Beating Virginia Tech by 24 points will certainly help their case, but if they really want to give their resume a boost they will need to beat Louisville Saturday night.Can they? Louisville has been slumping lately so that...
