The University of Miami men’s basketball team reached the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Div 1 championships last evening – making history and having fun the whole way. The canes overcame a talented Illinois team in a close game that had multiple lead changes and significant swings in momentum.
Through it all, Coach Larrañaga managed to help this team keep its poise and earn a University of Miami first – a trip to the Sweet 16!!
During an on-court interview with Shane Larkin following the game, Senior power forward, Julian Gamble, did a little national-TV level Photobombing to the delight of the Rubinoff clan.
Back in the lockeroom – the TV cameras got a unique look into the culture that permeates this Hurricanes squad…
Miami Florida’s second team, the FIU Golden Panters, have a history of stunts in the hopes of earning respect. Leave it to the little guy with a chip on his shoulder to pick the start of March Madness to attempt to steal a little attention away from Miami’s real team – the University of Miami Hurricanes.
Ole Miss guard, Marshall Henderson, mocked the University of Florida faithful with his rendition of the Gator Chomp after sinking a 3 pointer in his team’s win over the Gators in the 2013 SEC Men’s Basketball championship game.
I urge all University of Miami fans to adopt him as one of our own – for anyone who can mock the Gators like this deserves canes admiration.
Tomorrow at 6am our family will be boarding a bus along with a host of other Hartfield Academy 5th graders, respective caregivers, and at least 1 teacher (Mrs. Rhodes!!) for what I hope will be memorable trip to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center located in Huntsville, AL.
We’ve been looking forward to the next few days since we first learned about it during orientation in the fall of 2012. Our little family has gone through quite a bit these last few months and I can say for myself that I’m totally psyched to immerse myself in the experience and learn and have lots of fun in the process.
Rest assured, we’ll be bringing back lots of Astronaut Ice Cream and I’m pretty sure I’ll be coming back with an official NASA Flightsuit :)
Time and connections permitting, I hope to be posting while on the go!!
With wins over then #13 Michigan State, #1 Duke, and Florida State, the University of Miami’s men’s hoops team is quickly on the tip of college basketball’s tongue when it comes to upstart teams w/ swag.
The latest AP poll has The _ at #14. Ole Miss, another favorite in the Rubinoff household also jumped to #16.
