Starting Five

Guard Denis Clemente Freshman 6-0, 165

Clemente, a highly-touted newcomer and fellow countryman of Guillermo Diaz (Puerto Rico), will have to step in as the starting point guard until Anthony Harris returns from a foot injury in three to six weeks. When he returns, expect Clemente to be the first guard off the bench.

Guard Guillermo Diaz Junior 6-2, 192

Diaz, a preseason All-ACC and Wooden Award candidate, needs 109 points to become the 28th UM player to reach the 1,000-point mark. A starter since his freshman season, Diaz has a career scoring average of 15.1 points per game.

Guard Robert Hite Senior 6-2, 190

A senior leader and four-year starter, Hite will play a big role in determining how far the Hurricanes advance in postseason play. Hite was an honorable mention All-ACC selection last season, finishing second to Diaz in scoring (17.3 ppg) and starting 28 of 29 games.

Forward Raymond Hicks Sophomore 6-7, 230

Hicks appeared in 23 games as a freshman, averaging 1.7 points and 1.1 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per contest. He had his best game on the road against Clemson, when he scored seven points in the final five minutes of the first half.

Center Anthony King Junior 6-9, 235
