Reports: Rodriguez Out Tonight, McClellan To Start

**Updated: SOTU has learned from UM that McClellan will start tonight, and that Rodriguez is out tonight but not the season

As if they needed more adversity, the University of Miami Men's Basketball Team might have just been dealt a proverbial gut punch.

Rodriguez' loss would be significant despite his sometimes woeful shooting.   He is the best on the team at handling and distributing the ball.

However, UM has capable back-ups in Manu Lecomte and JaQuan Newton.

If McClellan can't go, it might be too much to overcome.

Davon Reed is a more than capable wing, but Mac had averaged over 20 a game in a recent hot stretch.

He is the 'Canes best and most efficient scorer, an underrated defender, and is second on the team in boards.

Deandre Burnett would be the likely candidate to replace his scoring/minutes.

Stay tuned for more as we learn it.
