Miami Hurricanes head basketball coach, Jim Larranaga joined the Joe Rose Show on 560 WQAM to preview their upcoming match-up in the ACC tourney against Syracuse and discuss the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
“My concern is how many 3’s can we make to then get some inside buckets as well. If you can’t hit the 3’s then they will clog the inside as well.”
“We need some other guys to step up, maybe a [Ja’Quan] Newton or [Bruce] Brown to hit some 3’s for us as well.”
“Win the ACC championship and you get an automatic bid and you get a great seed. Guys that get a double bye have a tremendous advantage. One additional game is very challenging. We are looking at this like we are going to be playing in two tournaments. We want to play well in this tournament and in the National Championship tournament. If you lose in one of the early rounds, then OK you rest up and get ready for the NCAA tournament.”
