B-Rad named Atlantic Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week; Send off Canes' basketball team Tuesday

Congratulations to left-handed junior pitcher Bryan Radziewski, who was named ACC Pitcher of the Week on Monday.

After off-season surgery, B-Rad made his weekend rotation debut Saturday in a 2-0 win over Virginia Tech, and delivered the first complete game shutout for a UM pitcher since Carlos Gutierrez did it in 2009.

Radziewski, a former Baseball America Freshman All-American, tied for the sixth-most single game strikeouts for any Hurricanes pitcher in program history, striking out 16 Hokies. He gave up a double on his first pitch Saturday, but didn't allow another hit until a single in the eighth.

Radziewski is averaging more than 16 strikeouts per nine innings this season, and has a 0.42 ERA and 3-0 record. Pretty amazing. His 16 strikeouts were the most by a Miami pitcher in a single game since March 17, 1989, when Joe Grahe struck out 18 in a victory over Maine.

The Hurricanes (19-8, 4-5 ACC), who dropped the series finale Sunday, return to play Wednesday against FAU at Alex Rodriguez Park. The game will begin at 6 p.m.

SEND OFF CANES HOOPSTERS

Help send off the Miami Hurricanes men's basketball players as they depart for the Sweet 16.

The Sunday win against Illinois ensured Miami's second trip to the Sweet 16 and the first since the 2000
season.

The Hurricanes will leave Tuesday at 5 p.m. from the BankUnited Center. Fans are encourage to arrive early (4:45 p.m.). Miami, a No. 2 seed in the East Region, will face No. 3 Marquette at 7:15 p.m. ET (CBS) Thursday in Washington, D.C.
