  • Fansided: For Miami basketball to improve in 2019-20 Chris Lykes needs help

    At 5'7 about 157 pounds a lot was asked of Chris Lykes during his sophomore season. It is rare for a player his size to have to carry a basketball team. When recent Toronto Raptors draftee Dewan Hernandez was declared ineligible hours before the Miami basketball season opener it crushed the Hurricanes outlook for the season.

    Dewan Hernandez had an indirect route to getting drafted by Toronto Raptors. Hernandez sat out the entire 2018-19 Miami basketball season for his alleged involvement in the Adidas bribery scandal. Working his way up to a second round pick speaks highly of Hernandez's work ethic.

    The 6'11 center/forward began his ascension this spring at the NBA G-League combine. Hernandez was one of the best players in Chicago at the G-League combine. That earned him a spot in the NBA Combine. His performance continued to impress enough for the Raptors to select him with the 59th pick in the NBA Draft.

    The big man's draft stock was anything but clear, as one might expect when you haven't played basketball in over a year. The former 5-star McDonald's All-American was looked at as a late second round pick, a talented player who might be worth taking a low-risk gamble on.

  • The 7th Floor: Analyzing Miami's Placement in the NCAA Tournament

    The Miami Hurricanes seemed on the verge of locking up a spot as a host just a few weeks ago, but after Monday, they find themselves in one of the toughest regionals in the NCAA Tournament. A team that should have been a host, or at least one of best two seeds in the tournament, find themselves forced to go to Starkville, Mississippi, home of the No.6 overall Mississippi State Bulldogs.

    The decision to have Miami not be a host was strange, but understandable, but their seeding on Monday was absolutely stunning, to get a better view of the committee's possible motives, let's separate the two thought processes.
