If you’ve ever been to a University of Miami baseball game at Mark Light Field, then you must have tried a milkshake. And if you haven’t, well, you probably should.
“It’s definitely one of the best feelings I’ve ever had,” Palmquist said. “I just love contributing to the team, even out of the bullpen and keeping the game close so we can have a chance to win.
“Very fortunate to come out with a win,” Miami head coach Gino DiMare said. “The guys are real happy right now. Its kind of a game where you can see guys were looking around and going, ‘oh jeez’. We had the game and the wind was blowing out, but it worked in our favor too.”
Eight former UM football players UM will participate in the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this week, hoping to make positive impressions on professional teams with the goal of making it to the NFL.
Among the Hurricanes selected are Claire McGinnis of women’s swim and dive, Estela Perez-Sommariba of women’s tennis, Dane Dunlap of men’s tennis and DJ Vasiljevic of men’s basketball. Fifty student athletes from the ACC were selected for the award.
On Sunday, Beatrice Mompremier made her highly anticipated return to the court against Boston College in Chestnut Hill, where the redshirt senior scored 15 points in 17 minutes.
“Obviously just a bottom line is they got a lot of hits when they needed them and we didn’t,” Miami head coach Gino DiMare said after Sunday’s loss. “With runners in scoring position we seemed to not ever get the big hit and it seems like they got them.”
Notre Dame (16-10, 7-8) snapped the Hurricanes (14-12) three game winning streak in a 87-71 rout of Miami.
“Disappointing,” Miami head coach Gino DiMare said. “Came down to the end. Can’t finish the game. Something we didn’t do very good last year, we got to do a better job. Had the game right there where we wanted it. Couldn’t close it out.”
Mompremier has been named a top 10 candidate for the 2020 Lisa Leslie Award, as announced on Friday. This award is given to the best center in women’s college basketball and is presented by the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.
