Canes, former SBVC star come up short

Well the No. 7 seeded University of Miami Hurricanes gave it the good ole college try but came up just short, losing to No. 2 seeded Texas in the NCAA South Regional in Little Rock, Ark.

Former San Bernardino Valley College standout Lance Hurdle did his part with 11 points on 3-for-12 shooting from the field. He went 5-of-6 from the line and hit all four tries in the last 47 seconds to go in the game to keep the Canes in striking distance.

Miami trailed by 15 with four minutes left and rallied to make it a game.

Hurdle, a junior guard, didn’t seem to figure to prominently in the team’s plans early but earned a spot in the starting lineup halfway through conference play. Talk about coming up big – Hurdle had a season-high 20 against North Carolina. Hopefully he set himself up for a more important role next season.
