Jim Larranaga – the AP National Coach of the Year – and the Hurricanes were presented a plaque and a basketball signed with messages from supporters.

Larranaga spoke at the ceremony, which was hosted by Category 5, and thanked students for their attendance this season. He dubbed the packed student section Miami’s “sixth man on the team.”

The basketball team will appear at the Miami baseball game against Clemson at 7 p.m. Saturday night to throw out the first pitch. Fans can also greet the players and get autographs after the pitch.
