CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Vernon Carey Jr.’s friends and family will lead the cheers Saturday night when he’s introduced at a University of Miami game for the first time, just as Hurricanes coach Jim Larranaga envisioned when he began recruiting the precocious youngster five years ago.

Alas for Miami, Carey will be playing for Duke.

Larranaga lost the recruiting battle for Carey, whose father played football with the Hurricanes and was a first-round draft choice by the Miami Dolphins in 2004. The 6-foot-10 freshman will lead the No. 2-ranked Blue Devils (12-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) against the Hurricanes (9-3, 1-1), his hometown team.

Mariah Carey Sued by Former Nanny, Who Claims Retaliation

  Mariah Carey Sued by Former Nanny, Who Claims Retaliation Mariah Carey, whose classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is atop the music charts, was sued on Monday by a former nanny. Maria Burgues filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging she was fired in April 2018 after complaining about her pay and working conditions. Burgues says she was paid $25 an hour to babysit Carey’s children. She was obliged to travel with Carey and the children when Carey went on tour, but says she was not paid for her travel time.According to the suit, Carey’s children had a bodyguard, Marcio Moto, who routinely yelled at Burgues and made her feel threatened.

When he signed a four-year, .6-million contract with the Hurricanes last May But consistency has been an issue. The victory against Chicago was his first since defeating the Vancouver Canucks on Feb. But Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said going from backup to starter is definitely an adjustment

Carey ' s father played football at Miami and for the Miami Dolphins, and the Hurricanes made him a priority from early in his high school career, often sending their entire coaching staff to watch him . When you add Carey with Wendell Moore and Boogie Ellis, that is a potent scoring class for Duke ."

“We watched him play I don’t know how many games from the time he was in the eighth grade,” Larranaga said Friday. "He’s so big and so strong and so athletic and has great instincts on both ends of the court. He runs the court extremely well. He can dunk the ball in traffic or shoot a nice little jump hook. He’s shooting 57% from 3.

“So he’s the full package," the coach added. "He’s a handful for us.”

Compounding the challenge is that the Hurricanes are thin up front. They're the only team in the nation with three guards averaging 15 points or more, but they get little offense elsewhere and have been badly outrebounded this season.

Carey, meanwhile, leads Duke in scoring (17.9) and rebounding (9.0). He wears Zion Williamson's uniform No. 1 well.

“He’s really young, but he's a strong, skilled guy for his age, especially his left hand around the post,” Miami junior forward Sam Waardenburg said. “We’ve got to do a lot to keep him away from that.”

Hurt, Jones help No. 2 Duke beat Boston College 88-49 in ACC

  Hurt, Jones help No. 2 Duke beat Boston College 88-49 in ACC Freshman Matthew Hurt scored 20 of his season-high 25 points before halftime and Tre Jones returned from a foot injury to help second-ranked Duke beat Boston College 88-49 on Tuesday night. Hurt made 10 of 16 shots and was 5 of 10 on 3-pointers to lead the Blue Devils, who shot nearly 52% and hit their last five shots of the first half as they blew the game open shortly before the break. Duke (12-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) also had little trouble clamping down with its defensive pressure on a BC offense that came in ranked among the least efficient attacks in the country.

Nothing went right for Islanders against Hurricanes . It' s been a little while since the Carolina Hurricanes or the New York Islanders won consecutive games, but it' s probably He was thrust into a pivotal role in March as the third-line center when Valtteri Filppula went down with an elbow injury.

And then there are the other Blue Devils to worry about.

Freshman Matthew Hurt, for example, scored a season-high 25 points in Duke's rout of Boston College on Tuesday. He shot 5 for 10 from 3-point range, magnifying the dilemma opponents face.

“It’s huge for us,” teammate Tre Jones said. “They have to help on Vernon in the post, or else he’s going to be dominating all night. When they’re helping like that, we’ve got to have just everybody ready to knock shots down.”

Larranaga knows too well the challenges, and said his familiarity with Carey will be of only limited value.

“It would help me if I were guarding him,” Larranaga said with a smile. “But you can only share a certain amount of information with players so you don’t overload them and get them thinking too much.”
