Miami Hurricanes: By The Numbers

Gregory Shamus

We’re just days away from two huge ACC showdowns against the Maryland Terrapins and the North Carolina Tar Heels. So we take a look at some key numbers into the Hurricanes season after thirteen games in the first edition of “By The Numbers”.

0: This is the number of times the Miami Hurricanes have started ACC play 2-0 since joining the conference in the 2004-2005 season. The ‘Canes have started 1-0 three different times and are looking for two early confidence-boosting road victories against tough Georgia Tech and North Carolina teams respectively.

5: Five is the amount of three-point field goals Rion Brown had made throughout the season prior to his shooting display against Georgia Tech Saturday afternoon, where he connected on four shots from beyond the arc. Brown had not made a three-point field goal since the December 14th win against Charlotte. Brown is now shooting 20.5% from behind the line this season.

10: For the fifth time since the 2007-2008 season and the eighth time since the 2001-2002 season the ‘Canes have started the season with 10 or more wins. It’s also tied for the third best thirteen-game span of that stretch for the team and it shows the direction the team is going in. There’s still a lot of work to do, and a lot of victories still to attain for this team to make the NCAA tournament for the first time since the 2007-2008 season.

8: Eight PPG and eight RPG is what Julian Gamble is averaging since the team lost Senior Reggie Johnson to a hand injury. Losing Johnson was a big blow for the team as he’s scheduled to miss 4-6 weeks and was the teams best option at the center position, but Gamble has done a great job filling in for Johnson in the starting lineup and helping this team maintain that inside presence they need. Gamble is averaging 5.9 points per game and 4.2 rebounds per game in his senior year.

500: On Saturday, Coach Jim Larranaga won his 500th career game and became one of twenty active coaches to achieve such a great feat. Coach Larranaga is most notably known for his unbelievable final four run with George Mason University in 2006. This is the second season coach is at the helm at the University of Miami and has recorded 30 wins so far in his first season and a half. Congratulations to "Coach L" and on to continued success here at "The U".
