07:13 AM ET 04.30 | The first days of the rest of Shane Larkin's life are going to be a whirlwind -- from interviewing agents, to the NBA Draft combine, to the draft itself. The departure of Larkin, combined with the graduation of five seniors, means the Hurricanes are losing their top six scorers from the historic 2012-13 season. ... So, why was UM Coach Jim Larranaga smiling as Larkin bid farewell Sunday? Because he is genuinely excited for Larkin, a kid he spotted as a scrawny 10th-grader and loved so much he was the first college coach to offer him a scholarship. He is also happy because he sees Larkin's early departure as validation that the Hurricanes program has evolved.
