ACC Basketball: Evaluating the top point guards

The ACC has seen plenty of freshman point guards make quite an impression. Recent examples include Tyler Ennis from Syracuse and Tyus Jones from Duke. However, this position also demands a degree of leadership capability; and the conference has plenty of veteran players with great potential as well. London Perrantes, Virginia Virginia’s London Perrantes Perrantes is perhaps...

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...

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. Many will be forced on to their computers to watch via ESPN3.com for the 8pm game. As mentioned earlier, it is Senior Night for Pitt. 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...

North Carolina walked off its home floor following a fifth defeat in seven games its last time out feeling outworked and outhustled by a team that played desperately to add a signature win to its postseason resume. The 15th-ranked Tar Heels hope that scenario doesn't repeat itself Saturday. North Carolina looks to avoid dropping a fifth straight meeting with Miami, which seeks its...

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.

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?
