Hicks suspended indefinitely
Junior forward Raymond Hicks has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.
This announcement was made Tuesday morning by men’s basketball Head Coach Frank Haith.
The suspension of Hicks is yet another blow to the Miami frontcourt, as Miami has already lost four frontcourt players to injury.
“Obviously we are very disappointed to lose Ray,” Haith said.
“However, we have certain team rules, and when you make a choice to break those rules, there are consequences.”
Blast From the Past
Curnutt named ACC Legend
In an announcement made on Monday by ACC Commissioner John Swofford, Don Curnutt, a former Hurricane men’s basketball player, was one of the 12 men named as 2007 ACC Basketball Legends.
The 1970 All-American averaged 26.1 points per game in his 77-game career as a Hurricane, and he ranks third all-time on Miami’s scoring list, despite playing during a time when players were only granted three years of eligibility.
Curnutt and the other 11 members will be recognized at the 2007 Men’s ACC Tournament in March.
Former ‘Canes show off
Former Miami Hurricanes’ wide receiver Reggie Wayne and kick/punt returner Devin Hester were both ‘super’ on Super Sunday. Both helped the Indianapolis Colts and the Chicago Bears, respectively, get off to a good start in the Super Bowl.
Hester became the first player in NFL history to return the opening kickoff, in a Super Bowl, for a touchdown. Hester’s 92-yard scamper was answered by Wayne as he was able to get open for a 53-yard touchdown reception.
The two, through their play, showed the world what “U” get when you draft a player from “The U.”
Team loses first match of season
