Fact of the Night

The Cavaliers–proud owners of a 26-game losing streak–have the third highest home attendance in the NBA.

The Bulls and Blazers are ranked  1 and 2, with the Mavericks, Heat, and Knicks rounding out the top six, and I just can’t get my head around what drives over 20,000 fans to watch the dismal Cavs night after night.

Meanwhile, the Nets have the worst home attendance in the league, just in time to be moved into Brooklyn.

The Cavs lost their 26th straight game Wednesday night against the Pistons

Reuben an All-American again

SWIMMING & DIVING

The first profile I ever wrote for The Miami Hurricane was about divers J.J. Kinzbach and Reuben Ross.

On Friday, Ross collected his seventh All-American honor when he finished fifth in the 1-meter springboard at the NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships in Columbus, Ohio.

During his sophomore season Ross took home the 3-meter springboard national championship. Friday afternoon’s meet was his last for the University of Miami.

MEN’S TENNIS

Top-ranked Virginia beat Miami 7-0 Friday afternoon at Boyd Tinsley Courts in Charlottesville.

The Cavaliers (21-1, 4-0 ACC) have won 20 matches in a row. The 49th-ranked Hurricanes (6-7, 0-4 ACC) did not score a point for the first time this season.
