Q&A and Courtside blog: UM 85, North Florida 63 (F)

Checking in from BankUnited Center where tonight in front of 4,000 green empty chairs the nation's No. 22-ranked men's college basketball team will go for its 11th victory against North Florida. I'll be here to bring you highlights from the game.

Feel free to chime in with your thoughts on the latest Cane developments. I'll try to answer some of the leftover questions from Tuesday's chat I didn't get to and any other new stuff you might have for me.

FIRST HAlF...
- Canes get off to a slow start missing their first five shots. Jack McClinton has five early points.
- As expected, Ray Hicks started for Jimmy Graham again.
- Brian Asbury did not start, snapping his 29-game streak. Coach Frank Haith went with three guards -- Lance Hurdle, McClinton and James Dews.
- The Canes are starting to pull away...
- My favorite moment so far looking up at the Jumbotron and reading: Hey Canes Fans If You Are Located In The Upper Levels Feel Free To Move Closer To The Action. Priceless.

SECOND HALF...
- Brian Asbury has 11 points and Jack McClinton has 10 to lead the Canes in another blowout here.
- Haith has spent most of the night mixing his lineup, playing the new guys and trying to get them some playing time.
- Dwayne Collins has a nice job in the post tonight. He's got 11 points and a bunch of boards. Good to see more and more growth from him game to game.
