The Miami Hurricanes will not be the same team in the upcoming season that they were last year. However, they did get a pretty good addition in the offseason by landing Angel Rodriguez and he will be one of the best point guards in the ACC in the 2013-14 college basketball season.
Rodriguez averaged 11.4 points per game and 5.2 assists per game last season. Those are solid numbers, but he has the potential to do even better in the upcoming season.
Not to mention, he could very easily be the Hurricanes’ best player and they will be relying on him to not only set up the offense, but score the basketball. Both should not be a problem for the former Kansas State Wildcat.
The ACC will be one of the best conference in the nation, which means there will be very talented point guards–among other positions.
I doubt the Hurricanes compete in the conference, which means Rodriguez may not get that much national attention. Still, he is a very talented player and Miami really needed a player like him joining the team in the 2013-14 season.
So expect to see the 34.4 percent shooter from behind the arc (last season) making threes all year, along with making the offense as good as it can possibly be. Yes, Miami is losing a lot of talent, but a good point guard is always a huge bonus whether if a team is competing for a nation title or is not even good enough to make the NCAA tournament.
It may not be the best season for Miami, but there is still some things to look forward to.
