Denver Nuggets guard Bruce Brown praised U Miami head coach Jim Larranaga earlier this week, calling him a great man to play under and letting it be known that the 73-year-old only brings in winners.

Barry Jackson: “Just wanted to ask you about the state of the Hurricanes program. I guess there was some surprise nationally about a Final Four. Was there any surprise to you? And do you think with Coach L and the climate and all the appealing things about UM, that this is realistic to make a run? You’re not going to make the Final Four every year, but make a run consistently?”

Brown: “Am I surprised? No. Coach L is a great coach. He gets great players to come in. They all buy into his system. They want to win. He gets winners to come in and play extremely hard. So not surprising. Each year, I think their goal is to win a National Championship. They have the players to do that. So, I can’t wait till next year starts.”
