UM men’s basketball maintains momentum, throttles rival FSU
In what is becoming the new normal at the University of Miami, orange-clad students snaked around the BankUnited Center on Sunday afternoon for a seat in the sold-out arena, and basketball coach Jim Larranaga brought them doughnuts.
They then rocked the building as the Atlantic Coast Conference-leading Hurricanes, coming off a historic 27-point win over top-ranked Duke, displayed no signs of a letdown as they dominated Florida State University, 71-47.
UM improved to 15-3 overall, and remains alone atop the ACC with a 6-0 record. It was the Canes’ seventh win in a row, and extended their home record to a perfect 9-0.
Canes fans are apparently getting so blasé about winning that they didn’t storm the floor, as they had after the Duke game and after beating the Seminoles last spring.
