Miami flexes ACC dominance
It was fitting in a game with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in attendance that Miami (Fla.) point guard Shane Larkin would dish an assist off the backboard to Kenny Kadji for a throw-down dunk that emphasized a 24-point lead against the team that usually dominates the Atlantic Coast Conference, North Carolina.

Tar Heels no match for sizzling Hurricanes
On a day off, one of the world’s best basketball players, LeBron James, made his way to the University of Miami’s campus and took his seat next to Miami Heat teammates Dwayne Wade and James Jones. James and his friends wanted a front-row view of what has become perhaps the hottest show in college basketball, the eighth-ranked Miami Hurricanes, who routed North Carolina 87-61, on Saturday.

Miami hands North Carolina worst defeat of season
Marcus Paige had Shane Larkin well-covered when the Miami Hurricanes’ point guard launched a shot from the top of the key. “I yelled, ‘Good defense, Marcus,’” Tar Heels coach Roy Williams said. “And it went right in.” Lately there’s no stopping the eighth-ranked Hurricanes, who made a school record-tying 15 3-pointers and extended their winning streak to 11 games by beating UNC, 87-61, on Saturday.

Miami does it again
Shane Larkin threw the ball off the backboard and Kenny Kadji slammed it home. From their front-row seats, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade stood up to join the sellout crowd in celebration. It was show time in Miami Saturday, and North Carolina was powerless to stop it. The eighth-ranked Hurricanes handed the Tar Heels their biggest loss of the season, 87-61. (Durham Herald-Sun)

UNC-Miami: Roy Williams Postgame Quotes
“Well there’s not a lot you can say. We didn’t play as well as we wanted to play by any means. They were pretty much playing pretty well here. Hitting on a lot of cylinders and all those clichés that you want to use. We didn’t have many answers for them. We got off to a terrible start and didn’t run back on defense and turn it over forty feet from the basket and it’s two lay-ups in a row.” (Inside Carolina)

Keeping it Heel Radio went back on the air tonight to discuss North Carolina’s loss to the Miami Hurricanes and the future of the program. (Keeping It Heel)

Could Michael Jordan still play at 50?
Michael Jordan turns 50 in about a week on Feb. 17. What would happen if he traded in his ownership in the Charlotte Bobcats for one more chance to lace up his Air Jordans? Could he do it? “I wouldn’t doubt that in the right situation with a LeBron (James) on his team or with a Kobe (Bryant) on this team, he could get you about 10 or 11 points, come in and play 15-20 minutes,” said Antawn Jamison.
