    Allen Crabbe

    Player of the Week: Allen Crabbe, Cal Let’s put aside, for a second, the shove that had the twittersphere in an uproar last night.

    Kenny Kadji, Milton Jennings

    Offensively the game between No. 3 Miami and Clemson was not one that the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame will request a recording of anytime soon. But all that matters is the result, and with the 45-43 victory the Hurricanes move to 12-0 in ACC play (21-3 overall). Kenny Kadji hit a three-pointer with…
