Rios, Graham uncertain for Thursday

The University of Miami's men's basketball team (8-0) could be without starting power forward Jimmy Graham and freshman point guard Eddie Rios when it makes its trip to Mississippi State (5-3) Thursday night.

Coach Frank Haith said Graham tweaked his ankle during practice Monday. Rios, who bruised his right thigh Saturday night against FIU, did not practice at all Monday.

Sophomore Dwayne Collins would likely replace Graham in the starting lineup. Rios, who started three games before returning to the bench against FIU, will have his minutes spelled by junior Lance Hurdle. Thursday night's game at 8 p.m. will be broadcast on FSN and on 560 WQAM.

Reminder, tonight I will host a live Q&A at 8 pm on Canespace.com. Feel free to leave questions on this forum.
