08:21 AM ET 03.04 | The 'Canes comeback at Cameron fell short at the buzzer Saturday, but Miami certainly left an impression. [The] intensity of the moment never got to the veteran Hurricanes in an intense Cameron Indoor Stadium. That was especially true for Shane Larkin. The sophomore guard scored 25 in defeat -- 19 after halftime when things got really tight. He hit a pair of 3s, penetrated and scored, then hit 7 of 8 free-throw attempts. Afterward, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski called Larkin "by far" the best guard in the ACC while describing his game as "magical." Since Feb. 1, Larkin's scored at least 10 points all but once and Saturday's performance was his third in the 20-plus range.

Nobody runs the pick and roll better than Larkin. The poise he (and the entire Miami team, for that matter) showed in Cameron the other night was incredible. This team is legit, they have all the elements and, though beatable, will be very scary to face come tourney time. GO CANES!!!

Agreed. Larkin is a beast, but Erik Green is hands down the best....Green is probably the best guard in the NCAA period.

Ya'll are really drinking the kool-aid huh? Look at the kids efficiency, he shoots a ton of shots therefore he will score more. He has no other legit scoring threats on his team and they are pretty much awful as a whole and he makes no one better. He would be a 2nd round pick at best if he came out. You really think that kid is better than McLemore? or even Seth Curry? Trey Burke? Oladipo?

Eric Green is a decent player that puts up good numbers on a bad team. Somebody Has to score for them. They have like 5 scholarship players left since everyone transferred after Greenberg got canned. He is decent at best but his numbers are inflated.
