Canes Breeze past the 49'ers 77-46

Canes Breeze past the 49'ers 77-46

The defense was on display tonight as the Canes (6-1) had the easiest of times with the no longer undefeated Charlotte 49'ers (9-1) in Coral Gables. Everyone for the Canes was scoring it seemed, and if they werent, they were rebounding or playing great defense. This was a pivotal game for both of these teams as a win would have been good for the RPI seeing as how each team could use this as a good mark on their OOC schedule.

Statistically, alot of Miami players had really good nights.

Kenny Kadji led all with 17 points, along with 5 boards and 3 blocks.

I agree! And it looked effortless. Charlotte is no slouch of an opponent, but we made them look bad.
Great effort all the way around tonight. Our defense was ridiculous.
I'm liking the trend these past 3 games. Go Canes!
Just got finished watching on DVR. **** that was impressive!! Now off to the Bahamas, see y'all in a week.
We haven't had as strong a core as Scott, Johnson, Kadji, Larkin, McKinney-Jones in a good while. Should be a fun season.
