THE PALM BEACH POST SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7. 1997 SB c College Basketball Hurricanes forcing fans indoors Saturday's scores Men The basketball program deserves attention, shifting the focus to a different venue. MIAMI Just what Butch Davis needs at the end of a 5-6 season, the challenge of fielding a football team the undefeated Hurricanes basketball team can be proud of.

There 1 Mr ) were 8.031 at Miami Arena to see the Hurricanes handle the Hoyas 66-56. According to the sudden change in perspective, that made the building seem half full as compared with the half-empty Orange Bowl of Dave George I ' ;1 I I T . .... '"V 'f mmimm Miami football. "I'm always pleased to see people in the seats," said Miami coach Leonard Hamilton, who was so pumped up by the rowdy atmosphere that he was whistled for his first technical foul in nearly three seasons. "Having people here is so very important to the development of our basketball program." It shouldn't be that way, of course, but this is South Florida and hoops will always be an uphill battle. The Hurricanes have certainly done their part, going 12-3 at Miami Arena last season and knocking off two Big East opponents here this week. Come down some time for a little comparison shopping. I think you'll find the 16-man Miami basketball roster far more concentrated than their helmeted brethren, 57 strong, when it comes to raw energy, outrageous heart and, yes, pure athletic ability, too. Tim James, 6-feet-7 in body and 7-3 in spirit, is the coolest 'Canes athlete in years. He led Miami with 22 points and 13 rebounds Saturday but it is his shot-blocking that brings down the house. When he slapped a three-point shot by Georgetown's Nat Burton in the first half, clearing the ball into the fifth row, the Hoyas hunkered down for a long night. Kevin Norris, a 5-9 senior, is another bulging eyefull. He will soon be Miami's all-time assists leader and Saturday Norris' classy ballhandling easily out-slicked the Georgetown press. That's a greater strength-against-strength result than any of Butch's third-and-1 calls this fall. Of course Hamilton wouldn't want anyone to pit the two Miami programs against one another. That would be counterproductive, even catty. Acknowledging that the Miami basketball team exists would be a nice start, however. Too many fans down here have missed that basic point, remembering Miami Arena as a college basketball venue only because the Florida Gators won an NCAA regional here in 1994. "You grow up with games like this," Hamilton said, still measuring the program like a proud papa in his eighth season as Miami coach. It's an arduous climb, one in which last year's regular-season sweep of Georgetown barely rates a mention. The Hoyas, 3-3 in 1997, are down. The Hurricanes, replenishing with South Florida high school stars like Dwayne Wimbley of Fort Lauderdale, have only begun THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Miami's Dwayne Wimbley gets a jump on Georgetown's Trez Kilpatrick during the first half. The Hurricanes are unbeaten in the Big East after defeating the Hoyas 66-65. Thompson, Georgetown's largest legend. "They're winning ballgames while they're learning. That's what is frightening about them." OK, so the Hurricanes are better than Georgetown right now. That's difficult enough to conceptualize. But are they better than Gonzaga? No, not Gesundheit. I'm talking about Gonzaga, the team that received as many votes in last week's AP poll as unranked Miami. Perhaps this is all too much to swallow in one exotic Saturday night, what with Cameroon's Ruben Boumtje Boumtje playing for the Hoyas and a 7-foot Brit named Nick Donovan logging five pointless minutes off the Miami bench. James sequence from this gritty victory and, you'll appreciate what's going on down here, j Two minutes and 44 seconds remain with1 Miami up 52-47. James goes to the free throw! line and misses. Twice. Oh, no. Wait a second, though. James also re-! bounds his own miss, gets stuffed by a hulking' Hoya, then somehow gets his hands on the ball( and scores on a short but very sweet hook: shot. Oh, wow. ' i t "I thought we had Miami in a good posi-l tion," Thompson said, "and then their poise; came through." j That does it. Give my Heisman vote to Timj James and the Carquest Bowl bid to Leonard ' Hamilton's hustling Hurricanes. j If Miami is to remain a football school, the! honors should at least go to the athletes who' deserve them most.

If you can't score, you can't win. No. 19 Florida State held Jacksonville without a field goal for the opening 8:11 Saturday, taking a 21-2 lead on the way to a 74-44 victory. The Seminoles (6-1) built their lead to 41-10 at halftime, the fewest points ever allowed by Florida State in a half. Jacksonville (1-4) was held to only three field goals in the first half and no Dolphin scored more than two points by halftime. "We denied them the ball," Florida State's LaMarr Greer said. "We got in the passing lanes and drew charges. We just did what we usually do." Florida State's opponents are averaging just 58.4 points a game and shooting only 35.6 percent from the field. "We always push, push and push to get them to play the best as they can," first-year Florida State coach Steve Robinson said. "We got a hand up every time they tried to get a shot off." "Our offense stunk," Jacksonville coach Hugh Durham said. "We played bad. You couldn't find something good to say about us
