Jim Larranaga's second year at Miami ended about as sourly as possible. The Hurricanes' 16 first-half points were a season low. They made only 5 of 26 first-half attempts. Marquette contested some with its man-to-man defense, but Miami did manage to create some open looks. Usually the result was the same.
The son of MLB Hall of Famer Barry Larkin, Shane Larkin led the Miami Hurricanes to their first ACC regular-season and conference championships this year and took them to the NCAA tournament's Sweet 16, where their run ended Thursday with a 71-61 loss to Marquette in Washington.
Larkin scored a career-high 28 points, eight coming in the final 2½ minutes, to help No. 9 Miami pull away late to beat North Carolina 87-77 in Sunday's final.
A sophomore this season, Barry Larkin's son has blossomed into perhaps the best point guard in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He's a major reason the Hurricanes are ranked No. 8 and take a 9-0 league record into Saturday's game against North Carolina.
The No. 25-ranked Hurricanes are alone atop the league standings at 5-0, their best ACC start. A rare capacity crowd of 7,972, including Warren Sapp, turned out for Miami's latest victory, a 90-63 drubbing of No. 1 Duke on Wednesday night.
Miami avoided a letdown after its road win at North Carolina.
"They did a great job in guarding the ball screen," Larkin said. "They were pretty much trapping me and trying to get the ball out of my hands, it was frustrating not being able to attack it."
And just as Larkin had promised, the Hurricanes weren't satisfied.
