Miami 87 UNC 77

Simply put, Miami's Shane Larkin was too good. UNC had no answer for him. Maybe a pre-ACL injury Dexter Strickland could have kept Larkin out of the lane but no one could. And once he broke down the defense it was easy pickings. Larkin found Trey McKinney-Jones multiple times and he cashed in on three after three that kept Miami close. Many of Miami's supporting cast hurt...

'Canes rally past BC, advance to ACC semis

GREENSBORO, N.C. A new season began for Miami on Friday afternoon. The Hurricanes won the ACC regular-season title, but closed losing three of four games and falling out of favor with many national pundits. Once widely embraced, the Canes were being shunned as contenders, as the teeth of March neared. This hasn't exactly been lost on the players, either. But they weren'...
