Video: Miami Basketball Coach Jim Larranaga Post Practice

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Miami Basketball is poised for a big time season.

All 10 scholarship players available can ball.  A run at an ACC Crown would not be inconceivable.  Head Coach Jim Larranaga addressed the media for the first time yesterday.

The Highlights:

  • Coach L talks how practices are running smoother due to the team's experience.
  • Freshman Ebuka Izundu and Amp Lawrence are "thinking too much"  but they are progressing nicely.
  • James Palmer has missed the first two practices with illness, but was back yesterday. Palmer could be in for a special sophomore season. He can play any of 4 positions on the floor.
  • Angel Rodriguez is adjusting and becoming more comfortable as a distributor.  Tonye Jekiri and others are taking on more leadership.
  • Kamari Murphy is going to make a huge difference this year with his defensive prowess, rebounding, and all-around game.
  • Ivan Cruz Uceda is in a lot better shape.
