CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Ebuka Izundu had one double-double in his first three seasons.
He has two in four days.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — From the game's initial possessions, Ebuka Izundu anticipated a special performance. Izundu scored and rebounded early and didn't stop until the stat sheet displayed totals unfamiliar to the Miami center.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Hurricanes will redshirt 7-foot center Rodney Miller, who won raves for his offseason improvement but was still third on the depth chart.

Miller totaled only 109 minutes in his first two seasons.
Last season: 22-10, lost to Loyola of Chicago in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
Coach: Jim Larranaga.
Conference: Atlantic Coast.
Who's gone: Guard Lonnie Walker IV (NBA), guard Bruce Brown Jr. (NBA), guard Ja'Quan Newton.
