Miami coach Jim Larrañaga makes ACC history with win over Florida State
Miami absolutely throttled Florida State Tuesday night on the Seminoles’ home court. At one point very early on, the Hurricanes led by more points than the Seminoles had on the scoreboard. It was 54-28 at halftime. The lead grew as large as 28 points in the second half.
It was a necessary kind of rebound performance after Saturday’s loss to Duke.
But it also gave coach Jim Larrañaga a bit of ACC history. The victory gave Larrañaga 112 career ACC wins, moving him into the Top 10 all-time on the league’s wins list. Larrañaga passed Terry Holland, whom he worked for as an assistant for 11 years, for sole possession of the No. 10 spot.
With tonight's win over Florida State, Jim Larrañaga has 112 ACC wins and moves into the top 10 on the @accmbb's all-time league wins list.

Miami guards Nijel Pack and Isaiah Wong tied for the game lead with 18 points in what was the largest road win by either side in the history of the storied in-state rivalry.
The Canes shot 56% from the field and buried 11 of their 22 triples. On the other end, they held FSU to 3-of-22 shooting from 3.
Miami (16-4, 7-3 ACC) travels to Pitt on Saturday for a 4 p.m. ET tip time on ESPNU.
