The Hurricanes explosive rise through the national rankings will continue after an 87-61 pounding of North Carolina on Saturday. Expect the 8th ranked Canes to jump into the top five for the first time in team history.
LeBron James and Dwyane Wade witnessed the barrage of threes and aerial acrobatics, including a phenomenal throw down off the backboard from Shane Larkin (ACC Player of the Year?) to Kenny Kadji.
Asked after the game – on national television – why he was so good, Larkin responded “My teammates were just great”. A revealing quote about the mentality of this team.
Welcome to a new era of Canes basketball.
