The Miami Hurricanes Basketball Team made it 2 for 2 in Spain today.
Here are some of the details we gathered via Social Media (special thanks to @CanesHoops for the clutch updates).
Sheldon McClellan led the Hurricanes with 24 points, five steals, three rebounds and a pair of assists. Miami notched 17 assists on 33 made shots, blocked seven Albacete shots, recorded 18 steals and forced 21 turnovers. The Canes outrebounded the Spanish squad 47-24

Miami changed the starting line-up a bit for this one. In their first exhibition it was Manu Lecomte, Sheldon McClellan, Davon Reed, Omar Sherman, and Tonye Jekiri.
Here's look at the team gathering just before tip off.
There are definitely some subtle difference in playing overseas. To our understanding the officiating was a bit difficult to adjust to in the first game (UM was called for an extremely high # of travels in the 1st game as well). But the important thing to remember is this trip is more about building than results.
For perspective take note that Roy Williams and UNC recently lost an exhibition in the Bahamas.
The #Canes will be playing four 10 minute quarters today in Albacete— Miami Basketball (@CanesHoops) August 17, 2014
#Canes are getting a lot of travel calls when taking off before dribbling here in Spain. Wouldn't be called in the US— Miami Basketball (@CanesHoops) August 17, 2014
There is a long ways to go until the season. But could we see more small line-ups this year?? Reed and Thomas are 6'6 & 6'7 respectively, with Sherman 6'8. Lecomte and Burnett and 5'11 and 6'1. This group surely makes up for in speed and skill what it may lack in size.
When they do go BIG, they need more production from Jekiri.
Speaking of Bigs, Cruz Uceda is extraordinarily skilled for a 6'10 guy at passing. This will be something 'Canes fans should enjoy this season.
That combination helped the 'Canes jump out to a nice half time lead.
Looks like the second half was more competitive. Burnett is going to get a lot of buckets this season.
Hopefully the freshman Sherman can provide this kind of a spark on the glass with some regularity!
Three straight defensive rebounds for Omar Sherman. #LetsGoCanes— Miami Basketball (@CanesHoops) August 17, 2014
In something resembling a pressure situation, we can guess who the go-to guy is, right now anyway.
