CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - There's still room on the Miami Hurricanes' basketball bandwagon, but it's growing fast.
The No. 25-ranked Hurricanes (14-3, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) are alone atop the league standings at 5-0, their best ACC start. A rare capacity crowd of 7,972 turned out for Miami's latest victory, a 90-63 drubbing of No. 1 Duke on Wednesday night.
The sellout was only the 10th in the Hurricanes' 10-year-old on-campus arena, and another full house is expected Sunday when they play rival Florida State.
Coach Jim Larranaga has the Hurricanes on the rise in only his second season with the school, and their success is welcome tonic as the athletic department awaits the results of an NCAA investigation that began more than a year ago.
