Miami expects sellout - biggest home crowd since last home game against Dukehttp://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/sports/college-basketball/no-25-miami-expects-sellout-crowd-for-wednesdays-g/nT4WX/
CORAL GABLES - Duke has its Krzyzewskiville.
Now the University of Miami has its Larranaga Lawn, an area outside the Hurricanes' basketball practice facility where students were preparing Tuesday to camp out overnight to assure themselves seats for Wednesday night's game against No. 1 Duke at the BankUnited Center.
"There's a buzz, there's no question about it," UM coach Jim Larranaga said. "There's a lot of people I haven't heard from in years call me and ask me for tickets. Although I wasn't happy to say no to them,
I'm very happy the reason I'm saying no to them is that we'll have a sellout crowd."
Wednesday night's expected capacity audience of 7,972 will match the biggest home crowd ever to watch UM play since the BankUnited Center opened in 2003. A 2011 game against Duke also drew 7,972.
