Nah, Diaz/Hite were there from about 03-06 which was just after those two had left. Tim James was on those late 90's Miami teams as well. The Canes don't have too shabby of a history considering they only joined D-1 in '85. Can't forget ole' Rick Barry.
The best thing about the Canes is that Larranaga has them playing DEFENSE. They switched to man last year, was a down year, but you look at that effort tonight and you can see that they're getting at it on the defensive end with a passion, it's paying off. They're buying in to his philosophy. This team is literally getting stronger every game.
Butler lost tonight after that amazing game winner against Gonzaga. Florida was in a game early, but rolled late. I would love to see a Miami/UF meeting in the tourny.
Amazing finish in the... HOFSTRA / DREXEL GAME. :mark
