    UM takes home Charleston Classic Title



    With Thanksgiving around the corner, ‘Canes fans should be thankful. We have life, liberty, and Larrañaga. Canes basketball is all we have right now because baseball is in training and football is vastly underachieving, again. While football, currently with 6 wins, is fighting for their lives to finish the regular season with 7 wins, Miami basketball is close to securing 6 wins by the end of November. Moreover, basketball has a win against a ranked opponent, a tournament championship, and no losses.

    After a close victory over UF, Coach L and his squad were able to take home the Charleston Classic Title with an average margin of victory of 22.3 points. Miami was able to capitalize on their talent advantage in each game while competing against Akron, Charlotte, and Drexel. None of these teams will show up as “quality” wins when the committee is selecting our seed for the NCAA tournament. Nevertheless, ...

    Again, sorry for the tardiness but I had to watch the fights last night and during the late stages of Manny Pacquiao's bludgeoning of the overwhelmed Chris Algieri I thought to myself, 'who took a worse beating tonight, Algieri or the Hurricanes?" The only difference is that Algieri was supposed to be handily defeated by 'the Pac Man' as he was ...

    I wasn't able to post this a couple nights ago, but I was at the Booker T - Glades Central game Friday night and a couple things caught my eye.

    1) Mark Walton has taken the next step. I've always been a fan of Walton, but was careful to anoint him the next great back out of Dade County because he was playing a year behind his true class and wanted to judge him as a 2015 kid (which...

    **The strength of Miami’s class right now is on the offensive line, and I feel very confident in saying that Miami will land Jalen Merrick of New Smyrna Beach as well. The Canes hold a strong lead right now for him and it is only a matter a time before he makes his announcement.

    **2016 LB Zach McCloud is a big get for Miami before he blows up. He is a long, rangy athlete with plenty of versatility and the Canes...

    The University of Miami offered 2016 Santaluces (Fla.) LB Zach McCloud on November 13th; after getting a glimpse of the Hurricanes play Florida State this past weekend, he saw enough to make him commit the next day.

    While the decision seems like a quick one, McCloud says it’s always been a plan of his to suit up in the orange and green.

    “Years and years of wanting to play at Miami, I’ve been wanting to play there for a while. The temptation was too great. Although...

    "Angel Rodriguez was sensational" - Coach L

    Yes he was. Angel Rodriguez dominated the second half and his performance looked eerily similar to his alpha dog days at Dr. Krop. Here’s a recap of Angel’s takeover and the ‘Canes upset of the Gators in Gainesville.

    First half:

    Gators come out pressing. Although two point guards are in, early on we use a 1 man game press breaker with Angel breaking the press. Manu is used as an outlet near the sidelines. Good move by Coach L. Angel is one of the best ballhandlers in the ACC and if a double team comes, Angel could get rid of it to Manu or inbounds man (Sheldon) then have a 4-3 advantage. During the first half, a delayed trap occurred as Angel neared half court ...

    The University of Miami was able to land an elite California prospect in Brad Kaaya last recruiting cycle; They’re looking to do the same this year except with 5 star defensive tackle Rasheem Green.

    Green officially visited the Hurricanes this past weekend and recapped the game.

    “I thought they played great; to me they probably should have won that game. They lost by a play or two, but that’s the way football is. They played great to me.”

    Green spoke...
