51 years ago I went to Canes last game in Dinner Key Auditorium as we Shut down the program for 14 years. Who then could see this. 🟧_🟩 got to believe
I went to UM with Rick Barry so ... very familiar with the program before and after the shutdown (a horrible decision made by a bunch of quitters).

Tbh, I never thought it would take 37 years (the time since the program was reinstated) for us to get here. Success in college basketball, unlike with football, only requires a handful of top recruits and a good coach.

Barry was one of the best pure shooters ever in basketball.
